The firm’s real estate attorneys are experts in complex land use and zoning law matters, as well as, construction and title concerns, development permitting, state subdivision regulations, and complex project documentation and Williamson Act Contracts, also known as The California Land Conservation Act of 1965 (where local governments can enter into contracts with private landowners for the purpose of restricting specific parcels of land to agricultural or related open space use. The owners, in return, receive property tax assessments which are much lower than average because they are based on farming, and open space uses as opposed to full market value).
