Administrative appeals

Property owners dissatisfied with an agency’s decision in a land use-related matter, or who have obtained a favorable land use-related decision that is challenged by an opposing party, engage Lerch Early’s land use team to determine their next steps. Our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of appeals to reviewing agencies (such as a board of appeals) and/or to courts.

Our attorneys have successfully convinced reviewing authorities to overturn, modify, or affirm land use-related decisions in a variety of situations. These include decisions on applications for development plans, rezonings, special exceptions/conditional uses, variances, building permits, historic designations, development impact fees, property taxes, and similar matters.
