McGuckin and Dasti achieve victory at the Supreme Court

The Firm scored a victory at the New Jersey Supreme Court.  On January 22, 2015, the Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, ruled in favor of the the Firm and its client, Ocean Township, with regard to the zoning of a portion of property in Waretown.

Gregory P. McGuckin argued the case before the Court and Christopher J. Dasti prepared the briefs filed with the Court. The Court agreed with the arguments put forth by the Firm that the township ordinances were part of a comprehensive scheme for establishing a town center, protecting the town from sprawl and, in a coordinated fashion, preventing the destruction of contiguous areas of inter-related and undeveloped sensitive natural resources.
