What’s a “Government Lawyer”?

The term “government lawyer” can mean two things.  First, it may refer to a lawyer who is employed by the federal or state government.  Secondly, it more commonly refers to a lawyer who handles legal disputes involving the government.  With regards to the second definition, a government lawyer may have knowledge in specific areas of government law such as:

  • Environmental, land use and zoning ordinances
  • Tax and tax evasion issues
  • Tribal laws
  • Educational laws
  • Laws covering government agencies (agency law)
  • Various rights, such as free speech and the right to bear arms

Thus, it’s important to know how to find a government lawyer if you are involved in any of these legal matters.  Government lawyers generally act as intermediaries between private citizens and government bodies. 

I Need Help With How to Find a Lawyer - Are There any Suggestions?

Finding a government lawyer for your needs can sometimes be confusing.  Few people have access to personal references in terms of finding a government lawyer.  As a result, many people believe that their only option is to call a lawyer, usually through a number that they found in a phone book or through an advertisement.

However, these methods can be time-consuming and somewhat inefficient.  For example, you may have to contact several different lawyers before you find one who can provide you with legal assistance.  Also, you may encounter difficulties when trying to obtain a review of a particular lawyer, or when trying to learn about their case history.

Using the internet may be a better solution for the problem of how to find a lawyer.  There are some legal websites available that allow you to contact a lawyer for advice or representation.  While the websites may be few in number, this is often a more efficient option than other methods.
