Zoning Compliance and Response to Complaints
Our attorneys offer a detailed approach to carefully understand clients' specific concerns and goals. We work closely with business owners, landowners, potential buyers and developers who need to make sure their property use is legitimate. We also provide legal counsel to architects, realtors, and brokers seeking zoning variances or modifications to the current use of land.
When businesses and property owners are accused of land use violations or of failing to obtain appropriate permits, we provide focused, effective defense. We carefully review local zoning laws and any permits that were obtained. We often work with land use consultants and local planning departments to protect our clients' rights and resolve the issue without resorting to litigation.
Developers often seek our assistance with reassuring city councils, county boards, appeal boards, or city attorneys that their developments are in the best interest of the municipality and in compliance with the law. With our extensive experience in real estate law and eminent domain, we are able build compelling arguments for green lighting these projects.
When we encounter resistance to a particular development plan, we are prepared and insightful negotiators who can often resolve any problems without resorting to trial. Our attorneys are sensitive to the costs of litigation and aim for quick, satisfying results. When our clients' rights require further protection, we are well able to do so before administrative boards and in the courtroom.
