Andrea Tsoukalas Curto is a well-known and respected land use and zoning attorney and Co-Chair of the Renewable Energy practice group. Ms. Tsoukalas Curto concentrates her practice in zoning, land use, environmental, and municipal law matters. She represents a wide variety of clients in the development of commercial and residential properties. Her practice is unique as she represents both applicants and municipalities. Counseling zoning boards, which includes drafting decisions on their behalf, gives her an invaluable perspective when representing applicants such as what a board is looking for, the importance of a municipality’s comprehensive plan, and how community support can affect the outcome of an application.
