Conservation Easement Presentations
Braun & Gresham Conservation Easement attorneys, Margaret Menicucci and Kathryn Tancig, spoke to landowners at both the Creating a Land Legacy: Comal County Landowner Workshop and the Texas Land Conservation Conference in February about the benefits and financial incentives of conservation easements.

If you are considering a conservation easement and would like to learn more, contact us at (512) 894-5426 or firstname.lastname@example.org
