T.J. Mitchell helps clients obtain legislative, quasi-judicial and administrative governmental approvals, including:

  • Zoning due diligence and zoning/use verifications

T.J.’s experience during law school working in the legal department of a large technology company allows him to understand what clients expect from their legal counsel.
