Area of Practice
With over 20 years’ experience in the field of Zoning and Land Use Development in the Los Angeles area, Valerie Sacks works with property owners, businesses, investors, and developers who need assistance with navigating – or just understanding – the complex web of local government planning laws and processes.
– We help investment clients acquire properties appropriately zoned for their desired use;
– We help sellers position properties with development potential for sale to real estate developer and investor buyers/investors;
– We help property owners maximize the value of their property in light of the opportunities and limitations placed on properties by local governments.
Past and current client matters have involved subdivisions (parcel maps, tract maps, small lot subdivisions, lot line adjustments, certificates of compliance); conditional use permits; variances; easements; street vacations; and boundary disputes. We also offer expert witness services and litigation support when land use expertise is needed.
