Defending You From Code Violation Citations

The city of Jacksonville issues citations to enforce their zoning laws, public health codes and public safety codes. At our firm, we defend clients who have received citations or been accused of a variety of code violations involving residential real estate or commercial property, including:

  • Abandoned vehicles: Vehicles that are missing parts or are unable to start can result in a citation when left on your property.
  • Unsafe structures: Abandoned, unsound or deteriorating structures on your lot, such as rotten garage doors, roof deterioration and collapsing walls can violate zoning and public safety codes.
  • Issues inside your home: Issues with electrical wiring, plumbing or construction can lead to a citation.
  • Nuisance lots: Code Enforcement Officers cite residential who have overgrown lawns or excessive trash or debris on the property.
  • Zoning issues: Zoning and land use issues that result in a citation can range from boundary issues to improper storage or use of a boat or recreational vehicle.

After you receive a citation, we will help defend you and protect your rights as a property owner. Our attorneys can represent you in a hearing before the Special Magistrate and we will vigorously pursue a positive resolution in your case.
