The Andrew E. Moore Law Firm is dedicated to representing clients as they seek zoning, land use and development project approvals and agreements in the Phoenix-metro area, its suburbs and surrounding counties. With over a decade of experience in zoning and land use law, we are well-prepared to advise you on your entitlement needs, represent you before the County or municipality where your project or property is located and negotiate and process your land use and zoning entitlements through to final approvals.

Whether you are a residential home owner who needs a variance for your property, a commercial developer with an office or retail development to build or a homebuilder planning a new residential community, the assistance of an experienced land use entitlements attorney can be critical to the approval and continued success of your project or property plans.
