Window detail, Richmond County Courthouse, Warsaw, Virginia.


Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula contain some of the oldest inhabited land in North America. Our shoreline is a national treasure and we have vibrant commercial, agricultural and maritime economies. It's no wonder then that land and shoreline rights are also an important part of our legal landscape.

Dunton, Simmons & Dunton has nine decades of experience helping property owners avoid real estate and riparian problems and resolving disputes that arise, often because of the age of land titles in the region. Several of our cases, in fact, have involved claims to land and river bottom dating back to 17th century royal grants.

These days, our transactional real estate practice focuses on commercial property and large residential transactions, but regardless of the case size, we still can help with boundary disputes, riparian apportionment, land use and zoning cases.

Whether you are involved in a dispute over property or simply trying to avoid a dispute, we can help. Call us to find out how we have helped to navigate the region's legal landscape for four generations.

Our real estate and riparian law practice embraces several practice specialties. Call us and our receptionist will connect you to the right attorney.
