The practice of Agricultural Law does not encompass a narrow specialty of law practice. Rather, the practice of Agricultural Law requires experience in linking the many areas of law practice in serving California’s largest industry. Nestled in the heart of Northern California’s agricultural industry, where almonds, walnuts, peaches, prunes, as well as rice and other field crops flourish, the law firm of Harris, Sanford & Hamman brings to its clients many years of experience and understanding of the special needs and concerns of agriculture.
For this firm, the practice of Agricultural Law involves applying that experience and understanding to your unique situation, whether you require a simple lease, a limited liability company, corporation, partnership, or the resolution of a boundary line dispute. It may be that your particular needs involve protecting the family farm for the next generation through estate planning, or preserving the family farm when the expense of long-term skilled nursing care threatens to diminish working capital or force sale of farm land. Major opportunities are available for qualifying farming property for reduced valuation on federal estate taxes, or using a farm’s “exempt” status under Medi-Cal law to maximize the preservation of assets when the need for long-term care strikes.
Whatever your particular circumstances require, we are prepared to apply our long-time background in agriculture to our expertise in Real Estate, Business Law, General Litigation, Estate Planning, or Elder Law, and find the solution that best suits you.
