Municipal Law Zoning

The areas of zoning and municipal law in Pennsylvania are somewhat distinct from other fields of law, but they are rather broad and include multiple facets. There are two basic components — representing the private person or business, and representing the public entity or governmental unit. The attorneys of Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C., have experience in both, which provides our clients with an important benefit by bringing experience from both sides of the table.

Whether you require representation as a private entity or wish to upgrade or attempt to interview or hire a municipal solicitor, our lawyers are prepared to work with you in whatever endeavor you choose.

Residential Properties And Zoning Board Hearings

The Pottstown zoning lawyers at Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C., take pride in representing private clients before Zoning Hearing Boards in Montgomery, Berks and Chester counties. Residential property owners may need variances for setback requirements or other items associated with building additions or other improvements to their property.

We have helped many families gain the right to make the home of their dreams. Red tape can be enormously frustrating, but our experienced attorneys can guide you through the process of obtaining the necessary paperwork. If you are considering major renovations, it is always best to consult with lawyer to avoid surprises later on.

Representation In Commercial Property Disputes

Commercial property owners may also need zoning relief either to permit initial construction or subsequent improvements to the property for business activity. Our attorneys have experience representing private commercial developers in real estate matters, which can include the need for zoning relief and conditional use approval. In other cases, submission of land development and subdivision plans may require the need to appear before local Planning Commissions, Boards of Supervisors, or Borough Council.

Proudly Serving Municipal Governments

We are also privileged to represent a number of municipal government units, including the Boroughs of Pottstown and Pennsburg, the First Class Township of Upper Pottsgrove, the Limerick Township Zoning Hearing Board and the Douglass Township Planning Agency. Our attorneys provide the municipal government units prompt quality service at an affordable rate, with over 20 years of municipal law experience.

In addition, the lawyers of Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C., have served as special counsel to many local Civil Service Commissions involving employment and labor matters, including the Townships of Colebrookdale, West Norriton, and Lower Pottsgrove. We have also served as special counsel to Malvern Borough, Lower Heidelberg Township, Harmony Township and Royersford Borough.
