Getting Your Site Plans Approved

Property owners in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are subject to various land use and zoning regulations during the planning and development of their residential, commercial, or mixed-use projects. Violating these regulations could result in the project being stalled or cancelled. Our attorneys will help ensure that your project complies with the local laws and ordinances; we will also help you put together a plan to present to the zoning and planning boards. If needed, we’ll help you obtain variances to suit your project’s unique needs. The high esteem in which John Vlasac and Boris Shmaruk are held in their communities has led to many strong contacts and relationships within the municipal courts and local planning boards.

Our attorneys rely on years of experience and thorough knowledge of the law to advise clients in even the most complex of cases.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
