We are eminent domain.

We only handle eminent domain and property rights cases. Because we only do one thing, we do it well. And since we have no associates at our firm, every single client benefits from senior-level experience, attention and expertise on their case. Our attorneys are trusted not only by our clients, but also by judges and our opponents. And because we have experience representing both property owners and condemning authorities, we grasp the complexities of both sides of the case and understand how to reach swift and fair resolutions.
