Alyssa Domzal represents owners, developers and investors in a wide range of commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions and dispositions, site development and construction, project financing, and leasing. In addition, she represents clients in land use, zoning, and other entitlement matters, particularly in Baltimore, including before administrative bodies such as planning commissions and zoning appeals boards.  Alyssa had a lead role on behalf of the development industry in the recent enactment of the Baltimore City’s new zoning code and regularly advises clients on development incentives and governmental procedure and processes for project approvals.  She also advises clients on the regulatory framework affecting projects in Maryland, including transportation projects and projects with environmental impact.

Alyssa is engaged in the local community as a board member of Strong City Baltimore, a nonprofit devoted to the strengthening of Baltimore's neighborhoods, and a board member of One House at a Time (OHAAT), which serves as a receiver for the Baltimore City to take control of vacant properties and reposition them for disposition and redevelopment.  She also serves as an appointee of the City's Health Commissioner on the Work Group on Drug Treatment Access and Neighborhood Relations, whose charge is to reconcile the needs of the city's drug treatment providers with neighborhoods in which they are located.

Alyssa is also active in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Baltimore District Council and in both the Baltimore Development Workgroup and Maryland Building Industry Association, both leading development industry associations. 

As part of Ballard Spahr's pro bono program, Alyssa has represented a community development corporation in the acquisition and redevelopment of historic property in West Baltimore for use as a stabilization center for people with drug addiction. 

Previously, Alyssa worked as a watershed coordinator at Scenic Rivers Land Trust and as an environmental outreach coordinator with Peace Corps Peru.
