He has successfully represented a number of property owners making compensation claims in both the direct and inverse condemnation context. A 1998 verdict is believed to be the highest pre-condemnation damage verdict in California. In late 1999, Mr. Leifer represented a business achieving the largest award for loss of business goodwill to date. Despite the size of the award, the business was not displaced from its location.
In a recent inverse condemnation matter submitted to arbitration, Mr. Leifer obtained an award against Caltrans for more than $3.2 million. Caltrans' position was initially to deny liability and compensable damages.
Mr. Leifer also represented the landowner in a land lease adjustment arbitration against the owners of 150 condominium units. A significant arbitration award was issued against the unit owners. Post-arbitration, the unit owners attempted to challenge the arbitration award. Successfully defeated the challenge to the arbitration award in the Superior Court.
Mr. Leifer was instrumental in securing favorable appellate decisions on behalf of his clients including: Kunec v. Brea Redevelopment Agency (1997) 55 Cal.App.4th 51 and Abers v. Rohrs (2013) 217 Cal.App.4th 1199 Read less
