Environmental & Land use

We define success as a matter which is proactively and professionally handled from start to successful finish for the client. Steve Hall has earned a reputation as a problem solver in his 30 years of environmental and land use regulatory practice. Success in working with government agencies on environmental protection, property rights and development issues requires smart management of teams of planners, scientists, engineers and architects. Steve is an experienced team builder and project “quarterback.” His character and years of personal work with local government staff across the Panhandle will provide a solid base for bringing your development plans from paper to reality.

Steve has a unique perspective on environmental and land use that he’s gained from more than 30 years of experience serving as legal counsel for state agencies, regional regulators, local governments, citizens groups, banks, developers and homeowners associations.
He offers legal counsel in the following areas of environmental and land use, as well as others:

  • • Zoning and permitting
    • Planning and property acquisition
    • Infrastructure financial agreements
    • Eminent domain


Steve has the character and mindset of a problem solver. “That is simply the best approach to get solid, long-term results for your client in complex and large-scale land development matters. Do your homework, build a strong team, know the parties and their needs and always search hard for the creative win-win scenario.”
