Texas Land Use Law
With Houston’s lack of zoning laws, few law firms in the Texas and the Gulf Coast region fully understand and practice Land Use Law. We are considered the preeminent land use law firm for private landowners in the area. Our attorneys continuously handle Land Use Law issues relating to acquisition, development, modernization and expansion of real estate improvements of all types, from residential to commercial to industrial.
Reid Wilson is an acknowledged expert in Texas Land Use Law and is a frequent speaker on those topics. Mr. Wilson chaired the Houston Bar Association Zoning Study Group, which critiqued the unsuccessful1993 Houston Zoning Ordinance. He has chaired the University of Texas Law Land Use Planning Conference on two different occasions.
We have experience not only dealing with the City of Houston (an un-zoned home rule city), but all Houston area suburban cities (virtually all zoned) as well as all other major Texas Metropolitan areas.
