Analysis of Legal Opinion

December 2001

   With decades of experience navigating Oregon's labyrinthine land-use laws, the Kellington Law Group, PC, recognizes that the process is simultaneously legal and political. 


   To deliver results in this challenging arena, we bring to bear not only hard-won knowledge regarding this subject, but also a keen ability to “see the floor” to develop a winning strategy.


   Since 1983, Wendie Kellington has assisted clients in obtaining land use approval for commercial centers, industrial facilities, residential subdivisions, billboards and many others from state, regional and local government agencies. She has effectively represented her clients in venues that range from city councils, to county commissions, to the state Land Use Board of Appeals, as well as trial and appellate courts.
