Land Use Law

Land use Law

KLG is prepared to represent our clients’ interests before local planning boards and boards of appeals with respect to land use issues. We are able to help citizens who apply for special permits, variances and other relief in order to improve their homes, as well as real estate developers and home builders who are pursuing more complex projects and developments. We also are prepared to work with neighbors who oppose the applications for special permits, variances and other relief, which (if allowed) would unreasonably disrupt the neighborhood. Further, we are ready to pursue appeals of decisions of local boards with respect to such matters as the issuances of variances and special permits as well as the division of parcels.

One of our Partners was the Chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals for many years in Manchester by the Sea, MA. Consequently, he is aware of the need to be familiar with the trends of boards, which can be critical with respect to the effective presentation of an application for a permit, variance or other relief involving the use of land. KLG enjoys its unique background in land use law, and our clients enjoy the benefits from this background.

Client Reviews
“Koufman Law Group, LLC retained me as an expert in a medical case. They effectively and thoroughly prepared for trial by, for instance, developing a good working knowledge of the content of my testimony. They also helped me determine the best manner by which I presented my expert testimony, and at trial, they were relaxed but very effective before the jury. “ Peter M.
“I am a medical doctor who has worked with K&F on a number of cases. I am consistently impressed with the K&F team's collaborative approach, with their individual commitment, and with their strong litigation skills.“ Thomas
“Attorney Koufman was able to do the job that two other attorneys couldn't and he got my case dismissed. I highly recommend him. He answered my phone calls and was extremely attentive to my case. He stuck up for me when nobody else would and he didn't let the system trample me.“ Edward
“I received a "Not Guilty" verdict. Everything was just fantastic. Attorney Koufman looked at every single thing. I am very happy about what he did. He's a very good lawyer. He's respectful. The jury was six women and one guy, and they liked him very much.“ Antonio
