Seattle and Tacoma Land Use Attorneys

Helping you resolve land use and zoning disputes

Misunderstandings involving the proper land use and zoning can have a significant effect on a land owners life. Whether you are a residential property owner in a feud with a neighbor over an easement or a commercial property owner battling for land use rights from the local government, these disputes can be costly and can take a long time to settle if not handled correctly—not to mention that your property or business success may be threatened if you are not successful. For this reason, any time you have any type of land use or zoning issue, you should always consult with an experienced land use attorney as soon as possible.

Creative solutions for efficiently resolving disputes

Such tactics can help to resolve your land use or zoning dispute in an efficient manner, often with a mutually beneficial outcome.
