Callaghan & Callaghan’s attorneys, Matthew F. Callaghan, Jr., and James M. Callaghan, provide expert advice and counsel in all zoning, planning, and land use matters. We intimately understand the process – from initial consultations to pre-applications to applications to hearing. Our practical and effective approach brings together planners, zoning officials, experts, and clients to achieve superior results.
Callaghan & Callaghan’s attorneys strategize with engineers, traffic engineers, zoning officials, and land use planners to create proposals designed for approval by municipal and state boards. We provide the necessary technical acumen and legal expertise in every zoning, planning, and land use matter.
We have successfully advocated for variances, subdivisions, small scale – large scale commercial, residential, and mixed-use land development projects. Every Rhode Island municipality has its own unique set of regulations – codified via ordinances. Callaghan & Callaghan has represented families and businesses before local councils, planning boards, and zoning boards, as well as state agencies and regulators throughout Rhode Island.
Callaghan & Callaghan’s advice, counsel, and practical approach has been instrumental in winning approval for hundreds of projects across the state.
