  • Kathleen McDermott worked in the U.S. Department of the Interior and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), as well as in private legal practice, before joining ALG. She specializes in administrative law as well as commercial and residential real estate matters.  Her practice includes commercial and residential mortgage loan modifications and workouts. She also handles land use matters. Together with Craig Blakeley of ALG, Kathleen recently represented a private landowner in successfully challenging a zoning decision of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  In this case, which is believed to be a case of first impression in Virginia, the Fairfax County Circuit Court held that the Board had exceeded its powers under state law in adopting an ordinance permitting residential lot width waivers to be granted by special exception, rather than by variance. PLEASE NOTE THAT CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE AND THAT CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY ALG OR ANY OF ITS LAWYERS. 

In addition Michael Nicolay serves as an engineering consultant to the firm and its clients on radio-frequency spectrum, electronic equipment approvals, and related issues.
