Art Giacalone


Arthur J. Giacalone, has been living, practicing law, and challenging authority in Western New York for four decades, and currently resides in the City of Buffalo’s Cazenovia Park neighborhood. The focus of Art’s solo law practice the past quarter century has been land use, development and environmental law.  He has zealously represented groups of residents – and, occasionally, municipalities – concerned about our environment, quality of life and community character.  Art has also assisted taxpayers and residents in challenging tax incentives and other forms of “corporate welfare” routinely doled out by state and local agencies (with little or no accountability) to the politically connected. His blog is titled With All Due Respect.
