I have had the pleasure of working with Howard on many zoning and land development projects over the last fifteen-plus years. He is well respected within the industry and provides my clients with efficient, knowledgeable, and professional counsel. His experience with land development issues at the local and state levels is exceptional.

I have worked with Howard Alderman on a variety of real estate and land development projects in recent years. I have the utmost confidence in his abilities and have found Howard to be knowledgeable, personable and highly professional.

As Zoning Commissioner for Baltimore County, I conduct quasi judicial hearings involving zoning cases, including variances, special exceptions, non conforming use, special hearing and proposed development plans. These pubic hearings result in granting approvals or denials. Mr. Alerdman's legal research, drafting of memoranda and out-going demeanor make him one of the finest land use attorneys in Baltimore County/State of Maryland. He is both intellectually and diversely qualified in the specialized field of land use and zoning with its plethora of entangled regulations.
Thomas Valkenet, Litigation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Alderman for many years. We have been on opposite sides of disputed matters, and we have worked together for mutual clients. He has a deep knowledge of land use and zoning issues, and he is someone I would call with questions.
