Q: Do I need an attorney to represent me on a residential variance application?
A: Zoning Boards of Appeals are quasi judicial local government agencies which are governed by State statutes and decisional law. Real estate developers and residential homeowners alike can save a great deal of time and money by consulting legal counsel before filing an application. A good zoning attorney can help determine what permits are necessary, streamline the process, build a strong record and increase the likelihood of success.
