Mark has practiced as a land use litigator/transactional lawyer for more than fourty years. A typical client of Mark’s owns or wishes to develop, litigate, zone or sell a commercial property worth $1,000,000 or more and faces:

• Easement issues
• Access problems
• Subdivision
• Unfavorable regulatory authority determinations as to use
• Zoning disputes
• Governmental taking
• Valuation issues linked to proposed condemnation

Mark and his team of associates have also served as local counsel to the Virginia Department of Transportation in some of the most complex eminent domain litigation. One of Mark’s clients had purchased property for development, only to have the local government acquire the bordering property and then block access to the client’s land. Another was facing litigation over a local government decision to refuse water and sewer service because it disliked the proposed use of the property. Mark has also worked with local governments and HOA’s looking to acquire property for utility easements. In one of his more intriguing cases, a U.S. resident who owned property in Eastern Europe needed Mark’s help getting cash from the sale to a Virginia bank.

A frequent question from land owners is the prospective value of their property based on its potential for development. Mark advises clients throughout Northern Virginia and says that development plans which had long been focused on the outer counties is now moving back toward the older close-in suburbs. This leads to entirely new issues as to property valuation.
