Law Firm Philosophy

We are, at our core, a local land use law firm. We recognize that land use matters can be personal and contentious, and that it can be overwhelming to navigate the applicable local, state (and sometimes federal) systems, especially since each town has its own way of doing things. You might not know the ins and out of local boards and town meetings, but we do. These boards, full of people from your town, help make fair and just decisions. We think this local process, difficult as it might sometimes be, is deeply important to our democracy.

Finding an attorney can be daunting. You might be worried that your matter will not get the attention it deserves, or that you will pay for unnecessary legal services. Not at Senie & Associates, P.C. We are your neighbors, people you might see at the local supermarket or at a Cape League baseball game. We know and care deeply about our local communities, and will be a true teammate, helping you to resolve your land use matter.

Our decades of experience have taught us that, at the end of the day, what a client wants is not overly complicated:

What Our Clients are Looking For

  • High quality legal representation
  • Accessibility to their attorney and good communication on their matters
  • A reasonable cost for the work undertaken

The attorneys at Senie & Associates collectively have decades of experience handling land use matters, and we can help you with a wide range of issues. Take a look at our PRACTICE AREAS PAGE to peruse more specific information. Our long track record of success is based on our meeting client needs in our practice areas.

If you work with Senie & Associates, we will value your time and treat you with respect. Sometimes larger law firms push matters down their to-do list, getting tasks completed at the last possible moment, or overlooking important steps. Our entire business is based on helping local clients, and we will give your matter the attention it deserves. We endeavor to set deadlines that do not leave important work to the last minute, and we will meet them.

After we interact with you or on your behalf, we will send an email summarizing the activity, progress, or developments that occurred. All substantive decisions and approaches will be checked with you before we take any action. An attorney’s job is to help you, and if you’re confused or out of the loop, then the attorney is not optimally doing their job.

We understand that legal work is expensive, and it’s important to us that we have transparency on fiscal aspects of our legal services work. Whenever possible, we advise clients to do work themselves instead of paying us to do it, and we don’t charge attorney fees for travel time. We’ve built our name on providing high quality services at a reasonable price and treating clients like valued members of our community. You’re important, and you deserve a law firm that treats you that way.
