Our attorneys have built a reputation for innovation and creativity and hard work. We not only apply the law, we help to develop it.
The government can interfere with the property rights of private citizens through the power of eminent domain. Eminent domain or condemnation law allows the government to seize property for a legitimate public use. However, the government must compensate the party whose property is taken by paying fair market value as well as paying for any damage that occurs to property that is not taken.
Although the government is required compensate you fairly, you may not agree with its determination of fair market value. In some cases, the government may not take your property for a legitimate public use. The unfair treatment of citizens in the condemnation or taking process is a fundamental violation of their constitutional, legal and moral rights. In such cases, the Texas condemnation attorneys at Barron, Adler, Clough & Oddo, LLP will vigorously fight to achieve a positive resolution for their clients.
