Dedicated and experienced in serving the unique needs of municipalities

Over a decade ago, eight municipalities in Illinois were hailed as the fastest-growing municipalities in the United States. As they grew, so did their legal needs. It was for that reason that they sought out Slavin & Slavin. Our Firm’s experience, responsibility, and passion allowed us to appropriately represent their needs as they continued to grow. More than ten years later, these and other municipalities continue to rely on our Firm to achieve their goals whether by consultation, negotiation or litigation.


We work closely with our municipal clients to minimize their exposure in workers’ compensation matters. We assist in the recovery of losses paid by pursuing subrogation and other third-parties. Our lawyers keep our municipal clients timely apprised of ongoing developments in the legal and legislative fields providing them the opportunity to stay ahead of potential claims and litigation. This includes avoiding protracted litigation filed against municipalities and governmental agencies challenging existing laws and ordinances. Our experience and expertise in diverse legal areas allow us to inform and prepare municipalities to better serve their residents.
