When I tell people I am a bond lawyer, people generally assume that I work in the criminal justice system. Not exactly, I don’t help people get out of jail, I help governments build jails to house inmates; I find many litigators and personal injury lawyers distasteful, just like everyone else. I practice Kumbaya law, my goal is to bring lots of different moving pieces together to acquire capital items for public entities. Or, as my wife more succinctly tells people, “he helps cities buy firetrucks.” The goal of this topic is to explain how local government entities legally borrow money.
