Collins Law Group promotes responsible and sustainable growth. We have experience in negotiating settlements and litigating precedent-setting cases influencing and enforcing comprehensive plans, local zoning ordinances, land development regulations, and developments of regional impact.
We continually strive to help preserve Florida’s wild and natural places and to ensure that taxpayers do not bear the burden of unsustainable growth.
Collins Law Group works with local governments in their efforts to protect their local environment and quality of life. We have experience in annexation, zoning, land development regulations, public records, eminent domain, green building, NPDES, and TMDL permitting issues.
We are proud to foster positive working relationships between Floridians and their local governments and help local governments achieve a high quality of life for their citizens.
Collins Law Group assists clients in creating, organizing, educating, and mobilizing powerful coalitions to advance environmental protection and sustainable growth. Our efforts have helped influence policy from global warming and energy efficiency issues to coastal zone management, preserving our national parks, and even ending overfishing.
We have appeared before numerous boards and councils of local governments, of the Department of Environmental Protection, of the Water Management Districts, the Governor and Cabinet, and legislators in both Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.
We consider it our top priority to ensure all Floridians have a voice in government.
