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.


Call the Dickson Frohlich in Seattle at (206) 621-1110 or in Tacoma at (253) 572-1000 for a free 15-minute consultation regarding your land use case.

Common land use matters

At the Dickson Frohlich, our experienced land use attorneys can assist you with cases involving the following and more:

  • Boundary challenges
  • Zoning issues
  • Easements
  • Right of way issues
  • Challenges with construction or development
  • Licensing issues due to zoning
  • Obtaining zoning approval from the local zoning authority

These are only some of the land use disputes our firm has the ability to handle.

Creative solutions for efficiently resolving disputes

Though some land use disputes do reach a courtroom, many parties are able to resolve their issues in other ways with the assistance of an experienced attorney. Litigation, while sometimes necessary, is usually time-consuming and expensive for everyone involved. For this reason, our attorneys always look into alternative dispute resolution options for every land use case. Such options may include negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and more. Such tactics can help to resolve your land use or zoning dispute in an efficient manner, often with a mutually beneficial outcome.
