Deep knowledge

Each of our attorneys brings their own unique skills, experience and knowledge in the areas that we practice. Like any good law firm, however, BDF is greater than the sum of its parts. There is quite simply no environmental, land use or development matter that we cannot handle. From initial site acquisition, to securing the necessary operating permits and approvals, to defending those permits and approvals in court, our attorneys have done it all.



Based on our collective decades of legal experience, we know what is required to obtain results for our clients. Our attorneys are knowledgeable and responsive to our clients’ needs. We listen to our clients and we make it a point to understand our clients’ business so that we ensure that our legal advice serves not only our clients’ immediate legal needs, but their long term goals as well. We understand that our clients have legal rights and business interests and our legal advice is provided to ensure that we do not unnecessarily assert our clients’ legal rights to the detriment of their business interests. We understand that a practical, cost effective and value added approach to complex legal issues is necessary to meet our clients’ goals.
