Legal Services for Rappahannock River Waterfront Property Owners in Virginia

The Rappahannock River is 195 miles long. It begins in the Blue Ridge mountains in the western part of the Commonwealth and traverses the entire state until it ends in the Chesapeake Bay. Some of the earliest colonial settlements were formed along the Rappahannock, and it was the site of a major battle in the American Civil War. Our teams’ extensive knowledge of waterfront (riparian) property rights law, maritime and admiralty law, and environmental law has helped clients all across Virginia.
