Zoning & Land Use
We advise organizations involved in land-use disputes with local zoning authorities regarding their rights under local zoning ordinances, as well as applicable federal and state anti-discrimination laws. We advocate for our clients throughout the process from the initial application, through negotiations with zoning boards, and any dispute resolution or appeals if necessary.
Civil Rights Litigation
We represent individuals and organizations pursuing federal civil rights claims (i.e. Section 1983 claims) for violations of their constitutional rights by government officials.
Beyond litigation, we advocate for clients through a number of avenues that allow them to convey their viewpoints to their audiences. These include public relations strategies, comment letters for agency rulemaking proceedings, and representation of grass-roots organizations in legislative issues.
