Daniel P. Dalton is the nation's preeminent authority in the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Person Act, also known as RLUIPA. He is one of the country's most experienced attorneys in representing churches and other religious institutions in land use and zoning cases and is the author of the only book dedicated to the topic – "Litigating Religious Land Use Cases", published by the American Bar Association.

Noel W. Sterett

Attorney Noel W. Sterett describes the core of his practice as a devotion to “ensuring people are free to serve God and their neighbors in their communities and in the marketplace.” This passion for securing religious liberty has led Sterett to successful collaborations with pastors and other religious leaders of all faiths across the country. He has helped win dozens of land use cases enabling congregations to use newly-purchased buildings and land to accomplish their noble missions. The Religious Land Use & Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) is an area of particular focus for Noel.
