Land Use & Environmental Law


Santa Barbara and the Central Coast of California are among the most challenging locations in the country to secure and defend land use entitlements. The attorneys at Reicker Pfau have a proven track record of obtaining and defending consequential land use approvals in highly-politicized environments throughout California. They regularly guide their clients through compliance with applicable Zoning Ordinances, the California Environmental Quality Act, the Subdivision Map Act, the California Coastal Act, and California Department of Real Estate regulations. Over a span of more than three decades, they have achieved consistent, demonstrable success.
