My Zoning, Land Use, Licensing and Local Government Law practice is focused in Wisconsin and I am able to appear in municipalities throughout the state.  I regularly represent clients before both elected bodies and appointed ones (Historic Preservation Commission, Plan Commission or Board of Zoning Appeals).

Aside from my own practice, where a matter involves something that I cannot personally undertake, I can either build a small team to provide efficient service or pass along to one of my colleagues to handle it. 

I look forward to the opportunity to learn more about your particular legal needs. Please feel free to contact me via email at [email protected] or by phone at 414-276-0200 x1484 to start a discussion about how we can work together.

President & Owner
I contacted Brian Randall who was referred to me from another business associate. I needed help with a vacation of property in the City of Milwaukee. Brian was not only extremely knowledgable, he also did an superior job explaining the tedious process. His communication was excellent during the process and he was prompt at returning emails and voicemails. Brian was also able to refer me to another attorney in his practice who helped me handle the sale of commercial real estate, and I felt that Brian went the extra mile in checking in on the progress just to make sure all my bases were covered.

Thoughtful consultation...
I spoke with Brian briefly concerning a government relations project. Although we ultimately chose not to pursue the project, Brian helped us think through our options with clarity and focus that cut straight to the substance of the issue.

Brian has an easy going way about him while always being professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field of law. He has made the process of owning a bar/restaurant flow very seamlessly thus far and has been of great help to us in public speaking forums with the city of Wauwatosa.

Top Notch Attorney
Brian and I have worked on a couple of key issues in regards to municipalities. He was able to help secure extended hours for my business which was critical to my success. He also helped me through another "sticky" situation in another municipalities. I find his integrity and genuine concern for me as a client to be excellent.
