Land Use Regulation in Florida: A Challenging, Constantly Changing Environment

As a successful developer, you need a timely, efficient path to obtaining the necessary permits and approvals,
so that you can focus on what you do best: building and marketing a high quality project.
Unfortunately, the permitting process is rarely trouble-free, and it can be a major headache.

The assistance of an experienced attorney, who appreciates both the practicalities of successful development and the legal issues involved, is essential. For the past 30 years, I have assisted developers on a wide range
of projects. I have also assisted cities and counties in developing fair and balanced comprehensive plans
and regulations, giving me an understand of both sides of the process.

My years of experience have taught me that it is sometimes best to stand on principle,
and at other times a negotiated solution yields the best possible result.
Your best interest will always be my priority.
