Protecting Your Rights in Land Use Disputes
The attorneys of Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., understand that laws related to land use and zoning can be quite frustrating and confusing for many clients. Some clients find their investment in their property threatened by strained interpretations of vague building and development standards at the county and city level. Others find their solace in jeopardy by ill conceived development plans near their property and inadequate scrutiny by local building officials who face shrinking budgets. The Chenoweth Law Group handles all types of land use cases.
Our Portland, Oregon, attorneys aim to provide thorough and effective advice and litigation services for your land use planning, development, and permitting issues. We can help you from the pre-purchase due diligence and inspection phase all the way through closing. We can also represent you before local and state land use and planning commissions, adjudicatory boards, and courts of appeals. Whatever your situation, our goal is to minimize the potential negative consequences and provide you with the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
Sign and Outdoor Advertising Expertise
The Chenoweth Law Group is particularly well known for its work in the area of sign or outdoor advertising law. State and local government sign laws can be very complex and sometimes even unconstitutional for violating rights of free speech. These laws and codes can unfairly prevent businesses from responsibly advertising their services. The Chenoweth Law Group has empowered numerous clients to combat unfair sign laws and enforcement in a variety of situations.
Land development and zoning issues can be difficult matters to resolve. We provide our clients with guidance regarding compliance with federal, state and local land use and development laws. Utilizing our services in order to take pro-active steps to understand the restrictions on the property you purchase can minimize the risk of being surprised by development restrictions that could erode the value of your most important asset.
Protection from Other Projects
Our attorneys can help protect you and your property from other development projects. If someone else's poorly conceived project has the potential to adversely affect you or your business, our attorneys can challenge the proposed development through local land use hearings, the trial courts, and the Land Use Board or Appeals (LUBA). The Chenoweth Law Group represents individuals and community groups to try and minimize a particular project's impact on the community.
