Land Use/Zoning

Effective Land Use Representation Involves So Much More Than Just Knowing The Law


Knowing the Law – the statutes and the cases – is just the start. Even years of experience practicing Land Use Law may not be enough. Truly effective Land Use lawyering is about being able to think like a Land Use Board Member, the way someone with years of first-hand board experience thinks and then about putting that insider’s perspective to work to achieve clients’ goals.


It is also about understanding the roles of the Municipal Officials who influence a Municipality’s Planning and Zoning decisions. It’s about understanding first-hand how the Zoning Officer makes decisions, who and what has the potential to influence him or her and about knowing how to work with the Zoning Officer to achieve the client’s desired results. It’s about understanding the roles of the Municipality’s Engineering and Planning Professionals and the influence that these individuals have on Planning and Zoning Board decisions.


Finally, truly effective Land Use representation is about intuitively understanding the role of the Municipality’s Mayor and the influence that he or she has the potential to wield over planning board matters, board members and municipal officials generally.

This attorney has helped with every one of my developments and zoning approvals. He knew what to say and how to guide the presentation. The professionals he recommended to appear before the town were perfect as well. It is not always back and white and there is always a need to negotiate and he knew exactly what he had to say. He had planned it all out in advance and we got the development that we wanted. He is hard working and professional. I recommend this lawyer to anyone.
