Experience You Can Rely On Achieving Your Goals

Framingham Land Use Lawyer

My father was a well-respected attorney who achieved a reputation for excellence in zoning and planning through his work with Hargraves, Karb, Wilcox & Galvani, LLP. Although he has passed away, I continue to follow in my father's footsteps and use the principles he taught me: to handle land use and zoning cases with integrity, treat clients well and provide cost-effective representation.

I use 32 years of experience handling all types of real estate, land use and zoning, environmental issues, and landlord and tenant matters throughout Massachusetts, including the Framingham area and Cape Cod.

My work helps guide companies through the permitting and approval process to construct retail stores, offices, industrial buildings, restaurants and shopping malls, among other buildings. I help developers obtain alcoholic beverage licenses as well as certain special permissions for development of commercial businesses.

My clients include major players such as Lowes, CVS, Walgreens, Target, automobile dealerships, corporate headquarters such as the headquarters for Bose corporations, as well as IMAX theater as part of expansion of future location in Natick, Massachusetts.
