David Bowersox, a partner of Hoffman, Comfort, Offutt, Scott & Halstad, LLP, has been practicing law since 1982 with extensive experience in land use, planning, zoning, and other state and local administrative law areas.  The firm represents developers, lenders and private landowners in meeting their varied land use needs.

Our land use practice covers the gamut of zoning and planning issues including:

  • Rezonings

  • Annexation
Attorney Bowersox’s practice involves representation before planning and zoning agencies of Carroll County and several incorporated municipalities within Carroll County, and to a limited extent, similar agencies in surrounding central Maryland counties.

Attorney Bowersox’s experience includes the litigation and negotiation of a variety of public and private land use issues such as:

  • Eminent domain
  • Boundary disputes
  • Easements
  • Real estate title issues and contract disputes

The firm also assists our developer and landowner clients in structuring complex real estate transactions involving the sale or purchase of development property.
