Paul has represented municipalities as both general counsel and a litigator throughout his career. Since graduating from law school in1987, he has represented municipalities in issues ranging
from annexations to zoning. Paul’s business education and past experience representing businesses and real estate developers have allowed him to be particularly effective in representing municipalities when drafting or negotiating contracts and when assisting in land use and development and zoning matters. He enjoys working with elected officials, department heads, and other professional consultants, and his ability to grasp technical matters involved in his representation of clients.
Paul’s experiences as a reserve police officer while in law school, and later experience as a criminal and constitutional law instructor in a criminal justice program, have given him valuable insight—both as a prosecutor and as an advocate or advisor to municipalities or commissions in the areas of hiring or discipline of officers. In addition to a wealth of experience as a municipal prosecutor, Paul has successfully represented municipal clients in a variety of litigation area in trial and appellate courts in matters such as, for example, property tax assessments and exemptions, public records law, and zoning matters.
In his free time, Paul likes to spend time with his family and their collie, doing home improvement projects, and doing volunteer photography for his church.
