Local Government

The Fox Valley area is growing every year, placing greater demands on local governments in all forms. One of Mickey Wilson's most significant specialties is in recognizing and representing the interests of local governments, municipalities and schools. When a public body is seeking legal counsel, it is extremely important to hire a firm that is not only competent and efficient, but also respected and trusted. The actions of legal counsel for a public body reflect upon the elected and appointed officials that constitute the administration and direction of the body. In that respect, Mickey Wilson has an unblemished firm record spanning over six decades, bringing one of the area's most respected names to represent your agency.

More than merely a reputation, Mickey Wilson brings municipal legal expertise not often found in law firms of reasonable size. Our Attorneys serve as general counsel and prosecutors for the Villages of Montgomery, Sugar Grove and Pingree Grove, and as special counsel and special prosecutors for the City of Aurora, the Village of North Aurora, and other local municipalities.
