    I highly endorse Mr. McNair for anyone seeking representation in land use, zoning, and other municipal matters. I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. McNair on various municipal matters where he was either serving as the municipal solicitor or in the representation of a private client. He is a professional, intelligent, and practical advocate for his clients.
