Anthony R. Sherr is known throughout the state for his work in the area of municipal law. Over the years, Sherr Law Group has represented municipalities, elected officials, police and emergency personnel in both litigation and counseling. We have successfully handled thousands of matters in Federal and State Courts, the EEOC, the Human Relations Commission, Contract Arbitrations and the Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board.
Our experience in municipal law and liability extends to:
- Civil rights cases involving zoning and land use
- Cases against police and law enforcement for wrongful arrest, excessive force, search and seizure, jail issues including inmate suicides
- School districts, employment and labor claims
- First Amendment and defamation
We are also versed in trying state tort cases involving road design and maintenance, premises liability, libel and slander and general tort. As well, we serve as solicitors to municipalities, zoning boards, and authorities.
Across all these types of cases and matters of municipal law, we have achieved many successful jury verdicts and judgments. Our dedication to achieving justice for our clients has brought us favorable precedents in matters in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the Third Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, including a victory for municipalities under the Sunshine Act in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and most of the important precedential opinions decided under ACRE.
