Navigating the complex web of zoning regulations and municipal ordinances can be daunting. Our zoning attorneys possess a keen understanding of local laws and regulatory frameworks, enabling us to effectively advocate for our clients’ interests before planning commissions, zoning boards, and municipal authorities. We work tirelessly to secure necessary approvals, variances, and entitlements, helping clients unlock the full potential of their properties while complying with regulatory requirements.

We are experienced in analyzing zoning impacts and environmental regulations; leading due diligence investigations, obtaining subdivision, land development, conditional use, and special exception and variance approvals; as well as obtaining rezoning and zoning text amendments.

We offer zoning due diligence, evaluate the feasibility of a project and also represent applicants before local planning boards, boards of adjustment and other governmental authorities and in litigation related to land use and development.  We prepare developer agreements and provide guidance on business transactions and leasing, construction agreements and litigation.

Land Use:

In the realm of land use law, strategic planning and meticulous attention to detail are paramount. Our attorneys possess the expertise and insight needed to navigate the land use permitting process, resolve regulatory challenges, and maximize property value for our clients. Whether you’re subdividing land, pursuing a large-scale development project, or resolving land use disputes, we offer practical solutions tailored to your unique circumstances and objectives.

We help navigate stringent environmental controls, stay up-to-date on ever-changing land use laws and the latest judicial decisions, and are dedicated to identifying ways that will save time and expense.  We work in coordination with development professionals, including architects, engineers and planners.

We know that litigation is not, and should not, be your first option when it comes to resolving land use and zoning issues.  That is why our approach to any development project begins with a thorough assessment of all the relevant factors that may influence the project. We help identify the options that offer the least amount of potential conflict and the most promising outcome.

As a boutique firm dedicated to serving the unique needs of our community, we pride ourselves on delivering personalized attention, pragmatic solutions, and exceptional results for our clients.
