After a presentation before a Village Zoning Board for variances necessary for a subdivision application...

Ms Shea was awesome. Her poise, depth of her knowledge, persistence and presentation were extraordinary. The Chair congratulated her at the end with real admiration. We won but were told that the presentation before the next board will require strong environmental evidence to counter my neighbors who made very emotional objections based on their perceptions despite the fact that the issue was  granting  a variance and not environmental effects of cutting down trees.

Regarding attorney Janice Whelan Shea...

Warmest greetings to you from RPPT Ministries in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We hope this letter meets you at the height of success in your personal live and endeavours.

In recognition of your undaunted assistance to our ministry in securing our Operational Permit from the Town of Babylon, the Members, Friends and the Pastoral Team write to express our profound appreciation of the time and energy you put into the entire process.

It is against this background therefore that we pray that God send you people to assist you in actualizing your goals in Jesus Name. May the blessing and favour of God never depart from you.

Thanks to Paul Bloom and Janice Shea

We were very pleased with our association with Paul Bloom and Janice Shea of Harras Bloom & Archer LLP.  As each individual situation is unique they helped us navigate a confusing and emotional property issue.   Most importantly they listened to us and followed up on the details we were concerned with and were able to explain the priorities of the case.  We were very pleased with the handling and results and we had easy access to both Paul and Janice.

Hi Janice, Your firm and you in particular were a pleasure to deal with. You did a great job presenting our case to the board and representing us, as well as making our issues and objections known. You are a very positive person and a good attorney. Thanks for your help.

The following "thank you" came from a commercial parking variance applicant after receiving a favorable decision from a Town Zoning Board of Appeals in order to launch his personal service retail use: Janice, I appreciate your guidance and professionalism during this long process. Your efforts in directing the process played a very important role in getting this approval. I will be sure to refer you and the firm to friends who may need counsel on zoning.

You probably already know the outcome of our ZBA hearing. However, I just wanted to take this opportunity and complement Janice Shea on a phenomenal job yesterday. She was well prepared, sharp, articulate, thoughtful and had a great presence in the courtroom. It was a pleasure watching her.

Separately, I wanted to thank you Paul for your guidance, flexibility and honesty throughout the process - I really appreciate it.

I am very happy that I was represented by your firm and will make sure that people I know are aware of your superior service.

Commercial Sign Application for National franchise in the Town of Smithtown My company and I have a long working relationship with Harras, Bloom, & Archer and recently I had the pleasure to work with Janice Shea. As I have found all staff members at the firm in my past experiences, I found Janice to be articulate and well prepared and she made a compelling argument on why our application should be approved by the planning board. I appreciate her and her firm’s professionalism and would be happy to work with them with future issues.
