Examples Of Our Team Experience Defending Mill Creek Property Owners

Reversing the VMRC’s Decision to Build a Pier

Our team helped a client get a decision reversed by the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VRMC). The client’s neighbor began construction of a pier after approval from the VMRC, but we were able to prove that the neighbor supplied the VMRC with soundings that were not correct. Our team helped navigate these issues with the VMRC and now the pier, which would have been built right across the mouth of Kent Cove, is being removed.
