He had a lot of knowledge on this Realestate matter I am facing and hoping, if I cannot find an Attorney he could come here to represent me in my area. I feel I will be talking with him again!
As of yet I have not found an Attorney yet. Thank you.

I have worked in the land use/planning field for 30 years an have had the pleasure to work with Mr. Abbott on a number of occasions. His knowledge of land use/planning/CEQA law is outstanding. Mr. Abbot's firm offers a free land use law update each year at a few locations around Northern California which is widely attended not just by planners, civil engineers, surveyors, but by other attorneys, which is a testament to the respect he has achieved in his field of expertise. I do not hesitate in recommending him for any land use/planning/CEQA representation.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
