Westchester County Real Estate Lawyer

Serving Real Estate Professionals Throughout the Lower Hudson Valley

The Westchester County real estate attorneys at Shapiro Gettinger & Waldinger, LLP, have many years of experience representing real estate, land use and zoning clients, both large commercial developers, and individuals looking to subdivide their residential land. We bring the same level of sophistication and attention to detail to this area of the law as we do to our other practice areas.

Our lawyers understand the numerous technical and environmental requirements that affect land development, whether imposed by local or other New York agencies. We work and coordinate with technical, environmental, design and planning consultants, including those retained by our clients or hired by the municipality.

We are often known to the individuals serving on the local boards (or have served on them ourselves), as well as the town and municipal employees who manage the process. This helps smooth what can often be a cumbersome and lengthy process.

  • Environmental compliance, including SEQR counseling, impact statement drafting and coordination with professionals
  • Processing and handling applications for site plan approvals, area variances, use variances, special use permits, and boundary line changes before local planning boards, zoning boards of appeals, town boards, and other municipal agencies
