Review Glenn Block

About Me

Glenn Block has concentrated his law practice solely in eminent domain for more than 15 years. A successful trial lawyer, he represents both business and property owners in direct and inverse condemnation litigation and has recovered over $100 million on their behalf. He also represents public agencies in acquiring property for public use.

Mr. Block also lectures on eminent domain law. Mr. Block began his practice with Goldstein, Goldstein & Rikon, the foremost eminent domain boutique firm in New York City, where he represented various business and property owners throughout the metropolitan area. Among his clients were theater and business owners in the Times Square (42nd Street) Redevelopment Project.

Thereafter, and prior to joining California Eminent Domain Law Group, Mr. Block was an eminent domain partner with Sullivan, Workman & Dee in Los Angeles. Among his many achievements, he obtained a favorable resolution for an inner-city dance theatre in an inverse condemnation action against the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency.

Mr. Block is licensed to practice law in California and New York and is a member of various bar associations. He received his undergraduate degree in accounting from San Francisco State University and his law degree from Brooklyn Law School.
