Offit Kurman Attorney Mark Moorstein Presented at the NBI Land Use & Zoning Seminar

For Immediate Release

Fairfax, VA | July 21, 2017

On Thursday, July 20, 2017, Mark Moorstein, a principal attorney in the Real Estate Law and Transactions Practice Group spoke at the NBI Land Use and Zoning Law Seminar in Fairfax, VA. Mr. NBI hosts continuing education seminars in-person as well as online for professionals across the United States. Mr. Moostein’s topics included constitutional aspects, exclusionary zoning, signs and billboards, eminent domain, and railroads. The insightful day-long program included a faculty of six seasoned professionals who guided the audience through the relevant local laws impacting land use and zoning.







Mark has practiced as a land use litigator/transactional lawyer for more than forty 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, and valuation issues linked to proposed condemnation.

Mark has 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.
