Attorney John L. Maier “Top Lawyer” In Land Use And Zoning Law

Congratulations John on being included in the 22nd Edition of the “The Best Lawyers in America”. Recently, Corporate Counsel Magazine announced its “Top Lawyers” list. Elkhorn law firm, Sweet & Maier, S.C., is pleased to announce that John L. Maier, Jr. was selected for the honor of “Top Lawyer” in Land Use and Zoning Law, and will appear in the 2015 issue of Corporate Counsel Magazine.

John commented on the recognition: “This is quite an honor for all of us who practice law outside the “big cities” and shows that some of the most innovative legal work in zoning and land use is being carried out in the rural areas of the state. My Walworth County colleagues and I are constantly involved in devising ways to solve our clients’ problems in a way that protects both their property rights, as well as the needs of the public. The fact that Corporate Counsel included me in its selection of “Top Lawyers,” signals that my constant effort to deliver on my commitment to my clients has paid off. It is gratifying to be recognized by my peers in this way.”

John says that clients looking for a lawyer to help them resolve their legal concerns should ask these questions:

  • Does this attorney have experience familiar with the laws applicable to my case?
  • Will I receive a high level of individualized attention?
  • What type of legal value will I receive for my money?
  • How quickly can my legal need be effectively resolved?

John’s experience locally in land use and zoning has included responsibility for some of the most familiar of our Walworth County “landmarks”, such as: The Abbey Resort; the Lodge at Geneva Ridge (formerly Interlaken Resort); Lake Lawn Lodge and Airport, the Wal-Mart/Lowe’s development in Delavan; and the Geneva National Community.

John L. Maier is also included in Wisconsin Super Lawyers, an honor awarded to the top five percent of statewide lawyers, by nomination and vote of their peers. Sweet & Maier, S.C. provides legal representation in a diverse range of practice areas, including: Business Law, Real Estate, Land Use and Zoning, Environmental Law, Land Use & Development, Lake Front Development, Community Association Law and Estate Planning and Probate.
