Zoning and Land Use

Zoning and land use issues are an integral part of many real estate transactions and a frequent subject of controversy. Yet, they represent a very specialized area of the law. I know, because I have handled numerous matters in this area over my career. I have the experience to guide clients through the complexities of municipal approvals and litigation, whether it is a homeowner seeking a variance for a one foot setback for a new garage or a developer seeking a rezoning for a major development.
