John S. Peterson, founder of the Los Angeles eminent domain law firm Peterson Law Group, P.C., was featured as one of Forbes magazine's Southern California Legal Profiles in November 2011 for his experience, sincere effort, strong business sense, and ultimate success in representing property and business owners regarding issues of eminent domain, inverse condemnation, and landslide litigation, as well as other areas concerning property rights.
The magazine article discusses a particular case where the owner of an operating inert landfill in Los Angeles was aware that the offer of less than $13.4 million from the condemnation agency was less than the property's true value and future potential; and so, the landfill owner retained the services of John S. Peterson, who took on the case without a moment to lose. Attorney Peterson analyzed a wide range of related issues, including relocation, business goodwill, site adaptability, property valuation, and highest and best use, as well as obtained the expertise of geotechnical engineers, geologists, appraisers, and civil engineers to develop a strong case. At the end of it all, the landfill owner did not receive $13.4 million, but $28 million.
With over 30 years of practice, John S. Peterson has built a solid reputation of success and a strong business ethic in his pursuit of just compensation in a variety of property rights issues. His trial work regularly results in settlements and jury awards exceeding the initial compensatory offers and property valuations from government agencies.
