Municipal And Zoning Law

New construction and redevelopment projects are subject to a number of local zoning and development laws that can delay a project significantly if not adhered to.

At the law firm of Schepisi & McLaughlin, P.A., in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, we work closely with developers, investors and other clients to advise them on a wide range of municipal, zoning and permit requirements. Our clients are located throughout Bergen County and northern New Jersey.

Our legal team is experienced and highly skilled at working with zoning boards and other public entities to obtain the necessary permits and approvals. That is critical to keeping a construction project on time and on budget.

We have a strong track record of resolving our clients’ matters efficiently and cost-effectively. There are times, however, when collaboration and negotiation cannot produce a solution. In these instances, our trial-tested lawyers stand ready to advocate for our clients in court.

We represent both residential and commercial clients before planning boards and zoning boards in hearings and appeals. In many instances, we petition and receive variances to land use regulations.
