Zoning And Land Use

Municipal real estate, zoning and land use laws govern the way properties may be developed and used. When commercial projects are proposed, zoning laws must be taken into consideration and all necessary permits and variances secured.

Local companies, as well as those from other states, often find this process overwhelming. At Cantwell & Goldman, PA, we help commercial developers and real estate companies avoid red tape and navigate zoning and land use issues in an efficient manner.

Do you need a special exception, a variance, or an amendment to a comprehensive plan?  Our attorneys can help you with these and other zoning and land use issues. Founding partner William H. Cantwell II is board certified in construction law by the Florida Bar, a designation that represents expertise in all legal issues relating to the construction process, from land acquisition and project financing to post-construction claims settlement.  Kimberly Bonder Rezanka handles all aspects of the negotiations with staff, application submittal, hearings, and trial work (if needed).
