I am a Seattle area native, raised in a politically active family. Since joining HCMP in 1981, my practice has focused onland useand environmental law, with an emphasis on land development, zoningand permitting. Our state's permit system can be a complex maze for many clients, and I enjoy applying my unique experience to meet our clients' needs.
Construction companies and developers use the services of construction / development lawyers. These lawyers handle bigger developments that involve many parties, regulations, and permits. For example, developers of big projects are often required to determine a project's environmental impact, as well as file paperwork, hold public hearings, obtain local government agency approval, maintain worksite safety standards, and negotiate project financing. Construction and development law firms ensure you meet all regulatory requirements and prepare the legal documents and contracts you need.
