Zoning, Land Use & Land Development

A coordinated and effective approach to obtaining approvals

Our zoning and land use lawyers work cooperatively with clients to provide the sound legal advice and practical guidance needed to obtain zoning and development approvals for a wide variety of projects. We understand the value and importance of adhering to schedule. In each case, we develop a strategy and approach aimed at achieving good results in a timely manner.

Our attorneys have proven experience in representing residential and commercial developers, colleges and universities, public and private schools, private institutions, hospitals, utilities, banks, automobile dealerships, and other landowners.  We regularly appear before zoning hearing boards, governing bodies, planning commissions, and other advisory boards in municipalities throughout Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties. We represent clients on large and small projects and matters involving:

  • Zoning appeals
  • Code enforcement proceedings
  • Special exceptions and variances
  • Validity challenges
  • Zoning amendments
  • Subdivisions
  • Land developments
  • Conditional uses
  • Condemnation and eminent domain
  • Court appeals

While knowledge of the law and applicable ordinances combined with strong advocacy are essential to obtaining results, we also believe that developing and maintaining cooperative and respectful relationships with municipal officials and community members is important in achieving our clients’ development goals and furthering their long-term best interests.
