Graves Smith Attorneys, is an AV®   Preeminent™   rated law firm located in Hernando, Mississippi, the county seat of DeSoto County, Mississippi.


Individual landowners and businesses would like to believe that private property can be developed and used for any lawful purpose that the owner chooses.  However, in these times of expanding government regulation of private property rights, that is not the case.  Before any development or use of private property, the owner must ensure compliance with all applicable government regulations or face action by the governmental authority to stop or abate the use, even at the cost of thousands of dollars to the landowner.

Graves Smith Attorneys is experienced in handling land use control matters from the initial planning stages for development, to representing the landowner in administrative hearings, and through litigation and appeal if necessary.  Its attorneys have a wide array of experience in matters involving variances, conditional uses, architectural controls, setbacks, subdivisions, zoning, rezoning, municipal incorporations, and annexation.

Should you have an issue involving use of your real property or its development, please call us for experienced assistance.
