Case History

zoning cases and litigation — For the past 20 years I have had the privilege of representing clients in many multi million dollar land use applications.   Many of these cases have been quite controversial.  but I have been successful in the vast majority of cases.  I have also tried 31 cases to a jury with only one loss.   As with all cases however, it is about being prepared to represent the client's best interest.  I am always prepared. I very much enjoy the practice of law.  When it comes to choosing an attorney it is important to excercise a certain amount of due diligence before making a selection.  Accordingly, I recommend that any person seeking an attorney examine the prospective attorney's experience, evaluate their qualifications and ask other people in the community about a given lawyer's reputation.   Finally, of course, it is always important to interview  the prospective lawyer before you make your decision.  I welcome such due diligence inquiries and interviews.  The initial consultation is always at no charge.
