Strauss Troy is proud to congratulate Shareholder Matthew Fellerhoff on being selected to be a member of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber Leadership Cincinnati Class 42.
Matt advocates for clients in public controversies and property rights matters, including inverse condemnation suits, land use and zoning proceedings, eminent domain and real estate development. He has successfully tried numerous eminent domain “right to take” cases on behalf of property owners, preventing local agencies from taking their property. Matt also has extensive experience in eminent domain valuation cases.
He has participated in and litigated local and federal environmental and historic preservation matters and has represented numerous property owners, developers, community groups and others in actions before local zoning boards, and subsequently in court on issues of zoning approvals, variances and special exemptions related to the use of property. He has negotiated development agreements.
Matt joined Strauss Troy after serving as a Municipal Court judge in Hamilton County, Ohio. Prior to his public service, he practiced law for 16 years, and established himself as a leader in the areas of litigation, complex land use matters, local government, eminent domain, property rights and employment law.
He served as long-time law director for the Villages of Moscow and Woodlawn, Ohio, and has represented numerous other units of local government in Ohio, assisting in employment matters, annexations, constitutional issues and assisting in writing village charters under Ohio law. He has also represented many local private fire departments and public school districts.
Matt is one of 56 leaders who has been selected for this year’s Leadership Cincinnati, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s premier leadership development program. Since the first class in 1977, nearly 2000 participants have graduated from Leadership Cincinnati. Many of these civic-minded leaders remain engaged today and participate in the steering committee.
