Land Use, Environmental, and Zoning

Effective developers understand that certain aspects of a development project require the outside assistance of various experts. Engineers, architects and financial analysts are among the professionals who work together to bring to fruition the developer’s vision. The complex web of laws and regulations that may govern a particular project and the multiple regulatory agencies that administer those laws and regulations make it a necessity to have comprehensive legal guidance.

Today was a special day for J&G and the Historical Society of Walden.
Jerry Jacobowitz recently received a Minutes Book from the Fairchild Post of the Grand Army of the Republic for Walden from a client.
This book dates back to February 3, 1892.
Given the history and great condition of this book, Jerry wanted to pass this on to the Historical Society to memorialize it.
Pictured here are Jerry Jacobowitz and Barbara Imbasciani, President of the Walden Historical Society.
