Our experienced Land Use attorneys are ready to help you navigate the maze of rules, laws, codes, and guidelines governing your real estate.

We regularly assist clients regarding compliance with zoning and environmental laws, drainage and access issues, billboard regulations, noise level limitations, architectural review, and traffic plans. This includes obtaining local, regional, state, and federal government approvals for rezoning, conditional uses, special exceptions, variances, and planned developments. Our firm also boasts a significant level of experience with all aspects of historic preservation laws and other quasi-zoning overlays affecting your property rights. 


Compliance, however, is just the beginning. Oftentimes property owners are stymied by delays in obtaining permits, approvals or even preliminary administrative review. Our attorneys have appeared in countless proceedings before state and local governmental bodies enabling us to provide critical insights into the nuances of their local requirements. And when government regulators get it wrong, our seasoned trial lawyers have significant experience in land use litigation  including administrative appeals as well as eminent domain/inverse condemnation cases.
