Dolph is one of the premiere attorneys in the nation with respect to conservation easements. He has placed tens of thousands of lands into conservation easements in several states for the enjoyment of generations to come and for the tax benefits available under applicable Federal and state laws for the landowner and/or for investors.

All of this results in “one stop shopping” for clients who are interested in conservation easements and makes the process smooth and streamlined.
