Kasey works with clients and their consultants to advance real estate development projects through the zoning and permitting processes.

As a land use and zoning attorney, Kasey helps developers and landowners secure site plan and subdivision approvals, special permits, variances, and zoning amendments. Kasey’s practice also involves advising clients on SEQRA compliance, obtaining approvals from NYSDEC and SHPO, and drafting easements and other real estate agreements. Kasey has also litigated Article 78 proceedings and declaratory judgment actions in State court, and represented clients in mediation sessions that resulted in successful settlements.

Kasey received her Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University in 2019, where she also received an advanced certificate in Environmental Law. She was a member of the inaugural class of Haub Scholars and served as the Managing Editor of the Pace Environmental Law Review.

During her time at Pace, Kasey worked as an intern and research assistant at the Land Use Law Center, interned with the Honorable Cathy Seibel, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York through Pace’s Federal Judicial Honors Program, and worked as a student attorney at the Food and Beverage Law Clinic. Kasey also participated in the New York State Pro Bono Scholars Program, which allowed her to take the bar examination early, in February of her final year of law school, and then perform approximately 500 hours of pro bono work with the legal department of My Sisters’ Place, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing legal and other services to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking.

Kasey received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Law, magna cum laude, with a minor in Environmental Studies from Binghamton University in 2016.
