Overview

Richard P. DeAngelis Jr. is an experienced real estate practitioner, well-known and respected in the areas of eminent domain law, redevelopment and property tax appeals. He works closely with clients to protect and maximize the value of their property under a variety of challenging situations and settings, including in proceedings before local land use boards, property takings, lease and relocation agreements, and a precedent-setting decision relating to redevelopment designation.

In the area of tax appeals, Rich regularly prosecutes commercial property tax appeals throughout New Jersey, resulting in significant property tax savings for his clients. He also has successfully challenged numerous redevelopment designations, thereby protecting clients’ property from being condemned. And, when a client faces the threat of government taking their property through the use of eminent domain, Rich ensures the client’s property is not wrongfully taken, and, in the event eminent domain is properly exercised, he helps maximize his client’s just compensation.

Rich’s practical approach helps clients quickly identify an attainable goal and develop a strategy to achieve it within each individual circumstance.
