"Jones Hassett is strong in many areas. Their work is done the right way, the first time. That's important when we are spending citizens' tax dollars in a responsible manner."
- Former Mayor Tony Yeager, Westworth Village

We know our way around City Hall.

We are confident in our ability to successfully handle any matter involving local government.  Why?  Because we have been there -- we’ve “walked the walk.”

In 1985, at the age of 31, Kelly Jones was elected to the Arlington City Council, becoming the youngest member so elected since the legendary Tom Vandergriff.  He served his planned two terms, serving the last two years as chairman of the Budget and Audit Committee.

Twenty years later, after moving to the west Fort Worth community of Westworth Village, Kelly was elected to the Westworth Village City Council in 2009, where he served five years as mayor pro-tem and as chairman of the Finance Committee. He returned to the Westworth Village City Council in 2018, and again serves as mayor pro-tem and chairman of the Finance Committee.

This experience has resulted in our representation of clients in a wide array of municipal matters, with a focus on real estate development.  We are familiar with and have assisted our clients in zoning interpretation and re-zoning applications, ordinance interpretation, the platting process including the negotiation of required dedications, condemnation proceedings, building code compliance, and variance requests before zoning boards of adjustment.
