Residential, Commercial and Industrial Property Development and Land Use Planning
Founded in 1991, Earl, Curley & Lagarde, P.C., has always focused its legal practice on land use, zoning and property development in Arizona. Over the years, we have become one of the premier land use firms in the Phoenix Valley. Our partners have consistently received the highest AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell for both legal ability and ethical standards. Only 5 percent of the law firms throughout the country receive this rating.
Our founding attorneys each have more than 25 years of experience in this area of practice. They are joined by an associate attorney and a staff of experienced planners who have worked in metropolitan Phoenix planning departments. Together we assist clients with the preparation and application of zoning documents, permits, variances, abandonments, site plans, subdivision plats and state trust land documents. In addition, we represent clients at meetings and hearings with city planners and zoning commissions, city councils and boards of supervisors, and neighborhood groups. The firm has built strong relationships with municipal and county staff and officials throughout Arizona, allowing us to move projects smoothly through the regulatory system.
A Full-Service Land Use Firm
We have extensive experience with a broad range of residential, commercial, industrial, office, retail, regional shopping center and institutional projects, as well as master-planned communities. Additionally, we negotiate development agreements between cities, counties and developers, as well as assist with intergovernmental agreements as required.
We coordinate efforts on behalf of our clients with neighborhood groups, municipal and county planning and zoning staff, city councils, and other city and county boards and commissions. We also work in the governmental relations area and do lobbying as necessary to obtain project approvals. Our client list includes some of the most recognizable names in real estate development and financing.
