The Fallibility of Breathalyzers in DUI Cases

This NY Times article highlights the problems with breathalyzers, which we knew about, but the corruption involved in the history of their approval is startling.  Fortunately, these instruments are no longer used in most jurisdictions where we practice in Pennsylvania as an official chemical test.

Getting Started on Your Land Use Project

Whether it is a simple land subdivision or a complex development plan, you need to hire your lawyer early on in the project to help make things go as smoothly as possible throughout the approval process.  Robert J. Schefter is an experienced land-use attorney representing business and individual clients across Southcentral Pennsylvania, including York, Lancaster, Adams, and Dauphin Counties.  He appears before Planning Commissions, Zoning Hearing Boards, and Board of Supervisors during the approval process of land use projects.

The first step is to determine what type of approval is needed.  Is the zoning of your land appropriate for the proposed use or change of use? Or will you need a variance or special exception from the local Zoning Hearing Board? Do you need to have a land development plan done?  We will sit down and look at your project in detail and consult the applicable municipal ordinances to see what is required.  Then, we likely will want to contact the zoning officer or other local personnel to introduce the project and seek input.  We will be with you every step of the way through the approval process. Give Robert Schefter a call today at 717.747.9048 for a free consultation to get started on your land use project.
