Uniondale, July 30, 2015 – Partner Kathleen Deegan Dickson presented on ‘Zoning Considerations’, at the recent, “Attorneys’ Guide to Local Government Law,” seminar sponsored by the National Business Institute (NBI). Among the topics covered were Boundary and Variances Issues, Sources of Conflict between Counties and Municipalities, State Highway Jurisdictional Issues and Managing the Public Right of Way.
Kathleen Deegan Dickson concentrates her practice in the areas of real estate development matters, and, in particular, land use and zoning law. Kathleen has an extensive track record of success with and before municipal boards and agencies on significant projects throughout Long Island. Perhaps more importantly, she has a reputation for effectiveness and integrity in the pre-hearing meetings and outreach to municipal planning staffs and civic groups that are now a must in Long Island’s current development climate. She is former counsel to the City of Glen Cove Planning and Zoning Boards, and currently represents many developers, property owners, corporations and private individuals in all types of matters involving real property transactions, zoning and land use. She was named one of Long Island’s “50 Most Influential Women” by Long Island Business News (2010 and 2013) and a New York SuperLawyer (2011-2014). She was honored by the John J. Byrne Community Center Uniondale™ at its inaugural Long Island Outstanding Advocate for Children and Youth Awards and Molloy College at its Annual Golf Classic.
