LAND USE AND ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

Justin Zucker is a member of the firm’s land use group. His practice emphasizes entitlements, due diligence, administrative compliance, and environmental law for development projects in San Francisco, Oakland, and the greater Bay Area.  His land use and entitlement experience includes historic renovation and conversion projects and California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) practice.  Mr. Zucker’s clients range from families looking to remodel and expand their homes to institutional developers proposing large mixed-use projects.  Mr. Zucker has appeared before administrative boards as well as state and federal courts throughout California.

Before joining Reuben, Junius, & Rose, LLP, Mr. Zucker practiced civil litigation at an AM40 law firm, giving him broad depth and perspective into the transactional and entitlement hazards that lead to lawsuits and the importance of addressing all potential issues at the outset.

Prior to beginning his practice, Mr. Zucker interned for the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, providing him with a wide-ranging administrative law and regulatory compliance foundation.
