Community Organizations

LogoOften community organizations or citizens' groups require a unique kind of representation to serve their needs in a cost-effective manner. We have extensive experience representing community organizations in environmental, natural resource, and zoning matters. We have successfully challenged a wide array of activities that were likely to have a negative impact on the environment or the character of neighborhoods. Community organizations also have special needs with respect to legal services such as forming non-profit corporations and corporate legal issues. Olson, Bzdok & Howard specializes in handling those needs, too.
