Overview

We see the lay of the land in California.  We have handled some of the largest eminent domain and valuation cases in the state, as well as some of the highest-profile public works that have shaped California's infrastructure.

We’ve experienced eminent domain from both sides of the property.  We represent public agencies and other acquiring entities in the acquisition of right of way and other property.  Our work includes major road, rail, flood control, utility, and school projects.  We also represent landowners and business owners facing both full and partial takings in a wide variety of contexts.

The range of our experience empowers us to handle all aspects of condemnation litigation.  We guide matters from elaborate precondemnation planning to final resolution, whether through settlement, jury verdict, or published appellate opinion.

From time to time, right of way matters and other takings result in litigation.  Our attorneys have an enviable record of trial success, including many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.  We have successfully litigated eminent domain issues before the California Supreme Court and have won several key appellate decisions.  Those appellate decisions have played a major role in shaping the law of eminent domain in California.
