Do Not Let Land Use And Zoning Issues Stop You

If you own commercial real estate and plan to develop your property, expand a building or take advantage of a new business opportunity, you must overcome land use and zoning obstacles. Land use and zoning issues can be a headache, but they must be dealt with and resolved in a timely manner.

As an attorney who focuses on commercial real estate, I have more than 20 years of experience in all areas of municipal zoning and land use in the Indianapolis area and beyond. As a former city planner, I know how municipal and county governments operate, and I can remove land use and zoning problems that stand in the way of your goals.

I provide legal services for:

  • Building and land use
    • Variances to existing development restrictions
    • Variances of use
    • Special exceptions
    • Plats and vacations of plats or rights-of-way
    • Nonconforming use/"grandfathering"
    • Platting
    • Defense of municipal code enforcement citations
  • Zoning
    • Rezoning
    • Appeals and judicial review of municipal zoning decisions or administrator's decisions
    • Alcoholic beverage permits or special event permitting
    • Historic preservation approvals

Also, I am well-versed in zoning and appeals litigation.

Are You Out Of Compliance?

Have you received a letter that says your commercial property is out of compliance with local zoning, property use or environmental laws?

Do not panic.

Before you respond to a notification, call me to discuss your options. In many cases, there are cost-effective financial strategies for appealing the decision or applying for a variance based on your specific circumstances.
