  • Elaine Louise Spencer

    I endorse this lawyer. She is highly knowledgeable and sophisticated in her thinking on the broad range of land use regulation. She works extremely effectively with local governments. She is creative in her approach, and also very realistic and able to guide clients to practical solutions. She is one of the people I turn to when I need help thinking through a difficult problem of land use law.
