While the City of Philadelphia continues in its quest to reduce, update, and consolidate its myriad of confusing and complex zoning and other regulations concerning businesses and individuals, more work needs to be done. You will need competent counsel to get your project completed.
Whether it be increasing lawful occupancy in your tavern or bar, adding a parking lot to your church or place of business, building an addition to your property, or just converting a single family home to a multiple unit rental property, you need to know how to legally accomplish these tasks in the City of Philadelphia.
All too often individuals and businesses wait to consult an attorney until after they have spent hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on projects that are denied final legal approval and then are required to be torn down, or returned to their original use. Preparing for a hearing before the Zoning Commission requires more than just hiring the right people in the neighborhood to get behind your project. It also involves making sure that you lay the legal groundwork for an appeal of a decision that ends up not being in your favor. Only an attorney can do that for you.
Battling "the Tangled Web" also often requires a legal representative with the insight and relationships to enlist the help of the relevant City Council person to get behind your project.
