About Us


With offices in Alpharetta, GA & St. Petersburg, FL, US Permit was formally launched in 2010, though the core of the company has been in the permitting industry since 2006. We began as a local permit expediter, serving our clients in and around the metro Atlanta area. In 2008, we expanded our services to include all 50 states. Since then we have expedited thousands of permits and have performed permitting services in all states, nationwide. US Permit has developed a nationwide network of expediters, and as of 2014, no city, township or county is out of our reach and sphere of influence. With our growing client base, and continued development of permitting management tools, we continue to grow and expand our services.


United States Permit offers services to clients across the country by utilizing our large, and constantly growing network of permit expeditors. When partnering with USP, you not only get an in-house team to support your project, but also the support of a local expeditor, complete with nuanced knowledge of the local jurisdiction, and more importantly, the personal relationships with plans examiners that are sometimes the difference between an approval and more comments.
