Brendan S. Mullaney

Brendan focuses his practice in business, zoning and land use as well as real estate development matters, construction law, and agricultural law. He represents a broad array of clients ranging from individuals, developers, and municipal governments, to health care institutions and national corporations.

Brendan is no stranger to construction, engineering, and zoning and land use matters, due to his Civil Engineering degree from the University of Florida and broad exposure to commercial construction. His practice encompasses the complete range of land use and real estate development issues including annexation, zoning, subdivision and development plan approval, construction, and environmental permitting. If necessary, Brendan litigates cases related to these areas, including matters related to development projects ranging from small-scale zoning matters to complex, large-scale commercial retail and master planned mixed-use communities.

When he is not actively serving the needs of McAllister, DeTar, Showalter & Walker (MDSW) clients, Brendan takes advantage of Maryland’s great outdoors. He holds a 50-ton USCG Captain’s License for recreational use on the Bay and is an avid fisherman and hunter. Brendan lives outside of Oxford and works principally from the Easton office.
