When to Hire a New Jersey Land Use Attorney
Land use cases are often complex and involve specialized knowledge and experience in a niche area of the law. Thus, when faced with a legal issue or dispute regarding land use, it’s essential to have qualified legal counsel to help you along the way.
While hiring an attorney for your case is not necessarily required by law, doing so is strongly encouraged and can help ensure compliance with local laws and regulations while increasing your chances of a successful outcome.
At Weiner Law Group LLP, we work with various clients who are facing zoning, development, and other land use matters.
No matter how simple your legal matter may seem, numerous issues could arise and add complexity to your case. When in doubt, consider proactively seeking legal support before moving forward.
Tips on Finding the Right Land Use Attorney for Your Case
If you’re not quite ready to select an attorney for your case, that’s okay—this isn’t a decision you should rush. Be sure to take the time to carefully consider your options before selecting someone to represent you and your interests.
Finding the right attorney for your land use case is crucial to its overall success. Below are some tips on what to look for to help you in the selection process.
Specialization and Expertise
While many firms and attorneys will market themselves as “full service,” it’s important to remember that not all attorneys have the requisite background and experience to handle a land use legal matter.
Before hiring an attorney for your case, ask about their background to make sure they have experience in land use matters to assist you effectively in the future.
Local rules and regulations can impact how a case should be handled. Accordingly, selecting someone who has local knowledge in the specific area where your land use matter is located is strongly recommended.
Expansive Legal Network
Land use matters often involve collaboration with numerous stakeholders throughout the process.
For example, many cases require interactions with state and local government representatives, environmental consultants, urban planners, appraisers, and other professionals. As such, having an attorney with a strong network can be advantageous.
One of the best ways to get a sense of an attorney’s reputation and experience is by reviewing the online reviews left by past clients. Whether good or bad, reviews can provide valuable information and insight into the quality of a prospective attorney you may be considering.
Availability and Responsiveness
Land use matters frequently require regular communication with various stakeholders and compliance with strict timelines and deadlines. As such, having an attorney who is prompt and responsive is crucial.
A successful outcome is the goal. While an attorney can never guarantee a particular outcome in any given case, past results can be an indicator of future success. Thus, as you vet potential attorneys to take on your case, don’t be afraid to ask about their track record and past achievements.

Subject Matter Knowledge
As discussed above, because land use and zoning can be such a specialized area of law, subject matter knowledge is one of the most important attributes your attorney should have.
At Weiner Law Group LLP, we are confident our attorneys have the specialized knowledge and experience necessary to fight for your rights and interests.
Owing to their exhaustive industry knowledge, partners in our land use department are the recipients of multiple industry awards, have served as heads of both the Land Use Section and Local Government Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association, president of the New Jersey Institute of Local Government Law Attorneys, and editor of the Municipal Land Use Law published by the New Jersey Planning Officials.
