Land Use and Zoning

We are uniquely qualified to assist developers or property owners in navigating the regulatory maze of obtaining local governmental approvals to allow property which they own, or may be acquiring, to be used for development. We can assist you in having land rezoned or in obtaining minor or major special use permits. We can also assist you with zoning violations and other regulatory matters. Regardless of whether you are dealing with residential, commercial, or office/institutional properties we are here to assist you.

We have assisted large, as well as, small developers and small business owners. Attorney Floyd B.
