Diligent San Joaquin Land Use Attorney Focus on Advocacy

Nearly 40 years of combined experience serving Modesto area organizations

Working with a skilled, knowledgeable and assertive land use attorney is important during a development deal, but sometimes that’s not all you need. When punitive regulations and restrictive local laws make development difficult, you should seek legal counsel that offers determined advocacy in Modesto, surrounding cities, and Stanislaus County. Our attorney and staff at Petrulakis Law & Advocacy, APC know the local laws, mores, and customs. More than that, they are familiar with local officials — both appointed and elected — who make decisions and direct the future of development throughout the region.

Why should you hire a skilled land use attorney to advocate for you?

Finding the perfect property will do you no good if the zoning isn’t right or you cannot get a variance or use permit from the city or county. Our founding partner, land use attorney George A. Petrulakis, gets the results you need by telling your story better than anyone else — which helps local officials understand why your project is beneficial to their constituents. Mr. Petrulakis is active in local political organizations and has served as chairman of the Modesto Chamber of Commerce and its political action committee.
