Eminent Domain/Condemnation

Condemnation/Eminent Domain involves governmental takings for a public purpose which requires the payment of just compensation. This has been my specialty for more than 20 years. I both ensure the government has the power to condemn in your particular case, and I ensure you the highest compensation in the event that the condemnation is authorized. [see cases]. There are many issues in valuation, and what is “just” is in the eye of the beholder. You need an experienced attorney for these cases.
 
If you receive a notice of condemnation, a good faith offer or any communication from a governmental acquisition agent, it is essential to refer them to your attorney. Do not provide information or documents. Do not apply for any governmental license or permit. Do not attempt to value your property or make arguments for valuations to governmental agents. Basically do nothing and say nothing until you have consulted your attorney.

Civil Litigation

My sub-speciality of condemnation involves the combination of real estate and litigation. Over the years I have been called upon to use my litigation expertise on a variety of fronts, including personal injury, complex commercial litigation, civil rights, contract cases, appeals, shareholder and partner disputes and other issues.
 
As explained in the blog pages, a solo practitioner can both compete with and defeat large firms due to the technological advances of the day.

General Real Estate

In addition to my sub-specialty of condemnation, I have for the past 19 years helped local clients with their everyday real estate issues. This includes the sale of homes and businesses, zoning issues, contractor issues and lien foreclosures, defense of foreclosure, boundary disputes, deed, mortgage and lease drafting, land development and numerous other issues contained under the heading of "real estate practice".
 
If you are looking at other local attorneys for your real estate needs, you will find that most earn their fees primarily through divorce and petty criminal practices. I have specialized, to largest extent possible, in real estate matters for most of my 25 year career.
