An alumnus of the Law School, Thomas F. Geselbracht concentrates his legal practice in land use litigation, having tried dozens of cases involving zoning, eminent domain, environmental, title insurance or landlord-tenant matters over the last two decades. His current caseload involves primarily eminent domain, zoning and environmental matters in both the trial and appellate divisions of federal and state courts. Typical of Mr. Geselbracht's more recent cases are jury trials related to condemnations for highway improvements throughout the metropolitan Chicago area, office properties in Chicago and Waukegan, Illinois, and an equestrian subdivision in Lake County, Illinois; zoning trials involving proposed shopping center developments in Waukegan, Illinois, Matteson, Illinois, Lisle, Illinois, Melrose Park, Illinois and Chicago, Illinois and an apartment tower on Chicago's lakefront; a lease dispute involving a superannuated lake freighter; injunction proceedings regarding the right to lay fiber optic cables in municipal rights-of-way and private pipeline easements; and administrative proceedings to change sewage boundary districts in western Du Page County and central Lake County, Illinois. Mr. Geselbracht served as chief counsel to the Illinois Low-level Radioactive Waste Disposal Facility Siting Commission, which conducted a hearing into the safety and suitability of a site proposed in Illinois for the disposal of radioactive wastes, and has handled numerous eminent domain cases as a Special Assistant Attorney General. He lectures frequently to industry groups on legal developments in the field of land use regulation.
