Land use lawyer handling litigation claims for Olympia and Tacoma property owners

Such cases include Land Use Petition Act (also known as “LUPA“) claims, disputes over condemnation, matters relating to flooding and drainage, the wrongful denial of a zoning variance or permit application, and more. Such disputes often involve suing state or local governments. If successful, such a suit can result in damages to the aggrieved party as well as a granting of the right which was originally sought.
