Real Estate and Land Use Issues
Pierce & Shearer represent developers and property owners in a broad range of real estate and land use issues, including zoning, code compliance, easements, property line disputes, title insurance claims, escrow disputes, purchase and sale disputes and agent issues. We make every effort to resolve disputes during the administrative proceedings, but when litigation is unavoidable, we have the experience, creativity and resources that our clients require to prevail in these unique proceedings, both in state and federal courts. Our attorneys also have significant expertise litigating the constitutional claims (both federal and California) that often accompany these causes of action. We have represented landowners in disputes with Santa Cruz County, Santa Clara County and the City of Palo Alto.
