Private Property Rights

There is often a significant degree of overlap in our practice areas, and nowhere is this as true as with property rights.  Government decisions on land uses can impact a wide range of people, from farmers and ranchers to landowner advocacy groups and land stewardship organizations. We have significant experience with everything from section line disputes to challenging local government zoning decisions to litigation against major energy developers and local, state, and federal government entities.  We are passionate advocates for private property rights and the private landowner, we will stand up for those rights, and we are not afraid to take on large corporate interests or the government in order to do it.
