Real Estate Litigation

Condemnation / Easement
Property owners often face governmental or quasi-governmental agencies attempting to take their land for public use through condemnation. If the property owner and government cannot agree on a value, the value will be determined through litigation. Our attorneys have represented landowners to ensure their rights are protected, proper procedures are followed, and that they receive the true value for the taken land. In addition, attorneys at the firm have experience with land use and land access disputes related to property easements.residential homes
