From the initial drafting of a blueprint to framing residences in a subdivision, the steps that span the construction entitlement process are numerous and specific. Having partnered with area real estate and construction businesses for over two decades, we have extensive experience with facilitating large-scale developments across the state of Georgia. It is for this reason that builders and developers in Metro Atlanta retain the services of Mahaffey Pickens Tucker, LLP.
In addition to our proven record of success in guiding clients through the process of real estate litigation, we also ensure our clients comply with established rezoning and land use guidelines. Contractors, developers and property owners have contacted our attorneys for direction in interpreting municipal, state and federal standards.
