"Land use and planning is a fascinating area of law because it represents the most localized form of government that most directly affects people’s everyday lives. Working through local zoning approvals can often seem like a daunting task for the everyday small business owner up to the most experienced developer. Advocating and helping others achieve their goals is why I wanted to become a lawyer." –Alec
