Land Use Law

Land use law covers the laws and regulations that affect the use, conservation and development of land. Land use law involves not only state and local regulations but also the ability to navigate a variety of government bureaucracies.

We have worked with local government agencies to facilitate zoning changes, lot line adjustments, and other approvals necessary for property owners to develop and use their property as they wish. We are familiar with which procedures local and state governments must follow in the approval or denial of a development permit and have sought redress from both when those procedures have not been followed and when the rights of property owners, their neighbors, or other interested parties have not been protected.

If you think a development project was improperly approved or denied, you received a letter from code enforcement alleging violations that you do not believe have been committed, or would like guidance in maneuvering the bureaucratic maze to effectively support or oppose a project, do not hesitate to contact us.

We can help you with:

  • Zoning changes
  • Boundary Line Issues
  • Easements
  • Development in your Neighborhood
  • Working with government agencies regarding improvements or changes to property
  • Eminent Domain
  • Environmental Concerns
