Religious Land Uses
In recent years one area of contentious litigation has arisen around local land use regulations affecting religious uses. Our attorneys have extensive experience advising local governments and religious organizations regarding the interface of zoning and the constitutional and statutory protections for religious uses. Additionally, we have successfully litigated constitutional and RLUIPA cases in State and Federal courts when local zoning laws have been challenged.
Our expertise in religious land use matters is not only as an advocate. Our attorneys have lectured and written in national publications on RLUIPA issues, and the Filippini Law Firm has been approved by the Department of Justice to provide court-ordered RLUIPA training.
