About The Firm


Miller Starr Regalia has had a well-established reputation as a leading real estate law firm for fifty years.  For nearly all that time, the firm also has written Miller & Starr, California Real Estate 4th, a 12-volume treatise on California real estate law.  “The Book” is the most widely used and judicially recognized real estate treatise in California and is cited by practicing attorneys and courts throughout the state.

We have forty attorneys in our Walnut Creek, San Francisco and Newport Beach offices, all of whom concentrate on real property matters, making us one of the largest real estate law practices in California.  Our firm has expertise in all real property related legal matters including transactions, acquisitions, dispositions, leasing, common interest development, construction, management, title, environmental, and land use, in addition to full-service litigation and dispute resolution services.  The firm’s depth and breadth of experience enable Miller Starr Regalia to represent numerous Fortune 500 companies, developers of retail, office, multifamily and industrial projects, homebuilders, lenders, media companies, educational institutions, government agencies, privately held companies and real estate investors. 

Miller Starr Regalia’s litigation group offers skill, experience and expertise in real estate and general business litigation at the trial and appellate level, as well as in administrative proceedings.  Our litigators represent clients in many complex commercial and business litigation matters, including disputes involving contracts, corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, commercial tenancies, federal and state environmental issues, condemnation, real property, foreclosures, construction, product liability, and unfair and anti-competitive business practices. 

Since our inception, we have approached real estate law differently than most firms.  For us, it is more than a specialty; it is our focus.  That is why we have dedicated our efforts to California businesses and property owners, with sound advice and solutions for all facets of their real estate legal needs.

The breadth and depth of our knowledge allows us to see beyond legal obstacles to find opportunities and practical solutions for our clients. Combined with our attentive approach and sufficient size to handle complex disputes and transactions, we are uniquely situated to meet the real estate legal needs of any organization.
