My Focus

Real Estate: I assist commercial developers, owners and investors with every aspect of a project, from initial acquisition of property through project completion. I help ensure that proper due diligence is conducted before a real estate acquisition occurs, including title examinations, insurance, environmental assessments, surveys, zoning and land use approval, and building inspections. I help clients navigate the myriad of state and local regulations, permitting and approval requirements including rezoning, variances and special uses, subdivisions, building approval and site use approval. I also assist clients with like-kind exchanges under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Municipal Law: I act as the attorney for local governmental units, boards and agencies. These include towns, cities, zoning boards, storm water boards, historic preservation districts, redevelopment commissions, and parks and recreation boards. I also consult with other local government bodies on specialized areas including economic development, financing, annexation, and zoning and land use.

Right of Way: I assist local governments, public utilities and railroads in acquiring easements, rights of way and other real estate interests necessary for completion of critical infrastructure projects.

Looking Ahead

As the U.S. and local economies continue to improve, real estate developers must be prepared to act quickly. But navigating increasing government regulation and permitting requirements can be time consuming and expensive. Hiring an attorney with experience in dealing with applicable government agencies can be the difference between a project’s success and failure.
