Ohio Public Records Act, Open Meetings Act & Sunshine Laws

Public Law

There is a greater focus on government accountability and transparency than ever before in our nation’s history. As more community watchdog groups emerge to scrutinize actions taken by municipalities and other public entities, there is a growing need for specialized legal support and defense.

Walter Haverfield provides full-service, proven litigation services to public entities and private clients concerning the two essential facets of Ohio’s Sunshine Laws: issues involving Ohio’s Public Records Act requests and issues involving Ohio’s Open Meetings Act.
