In his right-of-way practice, Ross represents condemning authorities for right of way projects, including state government agencies, utilities, municipalities and right of way consultants. His right-of-way practice includes litigation in state and federal courts regarding property valuation, eminent domain/condemnation and inverse condemnation, and the Uniform Relocation Act.

In his real estate practice, Ross represents and advises residential and commercial clients on transactions and related litigation. He serves as foreclosing trustee and represents creditors with regard to foreclosures.

Ross also represents clients in estate planning and administration, including the preparation of wills trusts, powers of attorney, and related litigation.

Ross speaks regularly on topics related to eminent domain and right of way law.
