Douglas Herring & Associates (DHA) works with public agencies, developers, and other businesses in California to expertly obtain the environmental and planning approvals needed to move projects from the conceptual stage to physical, benefit-generating reality in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Since 1997, DHA has helped dozens of California cities and counties and scores of other businesses and organizations save money while obtaining high-quality planning and environmental analysis services necessary to get their projects expeditiously approved and built.

Due to the high degree of experience and expertise brought to each project by Doug Herring and his associates, our clients’ projects receive exceptionally thorough scrutiny so that any potential pitfalls are identified and addressed early in the review process. As a result of our low overhead, we’re able to provide a greater degree of expertise on the day-to-day work, as well as project management and oversight, moving our clients’ projects toward completion for a lower cost than larger consulting firms charge. We relieve you of the difficulties of obtaining regulatory permits and environmental clearance required by State law, and help move your projects from conception to completion.

Our clients get the benefit of greater professional experience at a lower cost. Virtually all of the associates on the DHA teams tailored to your project have a level of experience and expertise found only at the top of larger firms, where most of the substantive work is done by less experienced staff. Due to our lower overhead costs, we can provide these superior services at lower rates than our competitors are charging.

As our clients will testify, Douglas Herring & Associates has a solid record of success that proves our approach works. It can work for you as well.
