One of the odd things about a blog is that it is often difficult to determine who the authors really are – and whether any reason exists to listen to what they have to say about a particular topic. The lawyers in Nossaman’s Eminent Domain and Valuation Group are among the top eminent domain and inverse condemnation lawyers in California. We practice together out of three offices: in Orange County; Los Angles; and San Francisco. Collectively, our attorneys have over 100 years of eminent domain experience. We have been shaping California eminent domain law for years, having been involved in many of the seminal published eminent domain decisions in this generation.
I am a partner in our Orange County office. I have been a practicing eminent domain attorney for more than 15 years. I typically split my time about half and half between agency side work and landowner/business owner side work (later, I’ll post about why I think that balance is so significant). I’ve handled everything from precondemnation strategy, to right-to-take challenges, and goodwill and real estate valuation trials, all the way through the Court of Appeal. I write and speak frequently about eminent domain and other valuation issues, and I am on the Board of Chapter 67 of the International Right-of-Way Association. (I’m also an Aries and a huge Cal football fan, but that’s probably less important.)
Hopefully, I’ll find many interesting things to blog about in the coming months, and get to any issues you might care about, but in the meantime, if there is something you want to know about eminent domain, let me know. On the one hand, I may choose not to blog about it, but on the other hand, it’s always nice to know what other people are thinking about.
