Environmental law, environmental crimes (illegal discharges, dumping), oil, gas, and mineral rights, water rights, eminent domain, construction, real estate, energy (solar and wind projects), land use (zoning, CEQA/NEPA, permits, easements). I defend our clients in litigation, regulatory enforcement actions, and citizen suits involving the air, soil, and water contamination. My practice includes advice on compliance and permit issues involving wetlands, water, hazardous waste, and endangered species. We provide full real estate transactional and litigation services, which includes my specialization in more specialized representation in areas of eminent domain and inverse condemnation. I successfully represent public agencies in the acquisition of right of way and other property for the most important projects in the state: road, rail, flood control, utility, and school projects. I also represent landowners and business owners facing both full and partial takings. On the land use side, I assist both private and public agencies through all aspects of CEQA, land use and zoning restrictions.
