Experienced Counsel Provided by Naples and Fort Myers Zoning Lawyers

Henderson Franklin’s Land Use and Environmental practice consists of attorneys who have played integral roles in development across Fort Myers, Naples, and its surrounding communities in Southwest Florida.  A Naples or Fort Myers zoning lawyer will work diligently with all types of clients including private property owners, developers, associations and investors.

Our lawyers understand that local government regulation of land use and the exercise of private property rights is often a complex equation. In Florida, local governments have the upper hand in enforcing compliance to their unique local land use and zoning regulations, often through legal proceedings that allow them to easily fine and penalize property owners. 

Our Naples and Fort Myers zoning lawyers are intimately involved in growth management and comprehensive planning issues across the State. Members of the Land Use and Environmental practice have served in various roles within the Florida state government, including committee counsel members, assistant county attorneys, and the Florida House of Representatives. Such roles have led to wide recognition from institutions such as Florida Super Lawyers, Florida Trend Legal Elite, and Best Lawyers in America. 

Our diverse roster of clients depend on our team to obtain land use entitlements and address land use and permitting concerns. Henderson Franklin prides itself on working through the complex and constantly evolving nature of zoning rights in order to keep our clients’ long-term business objectives intact.
