For more than 50 years, Miller Starr Regalia has had a well-established reputation as one of the leading real estate law firms in California. For nearly all that time, members of our firm have written Miller & Starr, California Real Estate, a 12-volume treatise on California real estate law. We call it “The Book.” The Book is the most widely used and judicially recognized real estate treatise in California, and is cited by practicing attorneys and courts throughout the state.

We have over forty attorneys in our Walnut Creek, San Francisco and Newport Beach offices, all of whom concentrate in real property matters, making us one of the largest real estate groups in California.  Our firm has expertise in all real property matters, including full-service litigation and dispute resolution services, transactions, acquisitions, dispositions, leasing, financing, common interest development, construction, management, title insurance, environmental law, and land use.  The firm’s depth and breadth of experience enable Miller Starr Regalia to represent numerous Fortune 500 companies, developers of retail, office, residential, mixed use and industrial projects, lenders, property owners, name brand tenants, educational institutions, governmental agencies, privately held companies, and real estate investors.

The attorneys in Miller Starr Regalia’s Environmental and Land Use & CEQA Practice Groups counsel the firm’s clients on a wide variety of environmental compliance, enforcement, and litigation matters.  Our land use and environmental attorneys collaborate closely to provide expertise in all aspects of environmental and land use matters, including environmental impact analysis, environmental compliance and remediation, natural resource issues, land use and entitlement processing, and eminent domain/inverse condemnation. Our attorneys are experts in environmental impact review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and have worked on some of the most complex and challenging CEQA matters in the state.  Our attorneys have extensive experience in reviewing, commenting on, defending and challenging, environmental impact reports, negative declarations, and other CEQA/NEPA determinations.
