Moore Bowman & Reese, PA

Mr. Reese is a Partner with Moore Bowman & Reese in South Tampa. His practice is dedicated exclusively to protecting the rights of private property-owners throughout the State of Florida.

Mr. Reese defends land and business-owners in eminent domain (condemnation) actions, to ensure that a government taking of private property, and the compensation required, meet constitutional and statutory standards. He also routinely prosecutes “inverse condemnation” claims alleging physical or regulatory takings of property by government, and “Bert Harris” claims under Ch. 70, Florida Statutes, for owners adversely impacted by government land-use regulations.

Mr. Reese also regularly advises clients seeking land-use and other development approvals on the constitutional standards for land dedications and other property exactions often demanded by government, and routinely litigates land-use, zoning, and permitting disputes where an owner’s development proposal/project has been denied or constrained by local government.

An experienced litigator and appellate attorney, Mr. Reese has represented clients in over a dozen circuit courts across the State, and in nearly all of Florida’s appellate courts, including the Florida Supreme Court. He has also handled cases in Florida’s federal district courts and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Reese is acting Chair of the Hillsborough County Bar Association ‘Eminent Domain Section’ and Vice Chair of the Florida Bar Association ‘Eminent Domain Committee.’ He has written and lectured on topics related to eminent domain and private property rights and is co-author of the “inverse condemnation” chapter in the Florida Bar ‘Eminent Domain Procedure & Practice’ treatise.

In his spare time, Mr. Reese enjoys golf, skiing, scuba diving, and traveling with his fiancée, Alexandra. His career goal is to argue a takings case before the United States Supreme Court.
