Eminent Domain

The Firm has substantial experience in representing business clients in condemnation and eminent domain proceedings. In this work we employ a thorough knowledge of the law, close attention to detail, extensive experience and hard work to obtain equitable and advantageous results for clients whose property has been taken by state and local governments.

Our services span the entire range of the eminent domain process from the pre-condemnation planning stage through the appeals proceedings. We begin by making sure our clients fully understand their legal rights and alternatives, and then help them develop a strategy designed to meet business objectives.

Throughout the process, we aggressively represent our clients in hearings, negotiations, and in any and all court proceedings including appeals if necessary. Our considerable experience in this practice is brought to bear in finding and preparing material witnesses, qualified appraisers, and experts in the fields of property management, development, finance, real estate investment and other relevant areas.

Our firm can also assist clients with related matters including:
· Zoning
· Land use law
· Administrative proceedings
· Permitting
· Land use litigation
· Landlord/tenant law
· Environmental law
· Construction law
· Real estate

Our goal is to provide timely, constructive, first-quality, cost-effective representation for every client.

Skilled Senior Attorneys


The firm provides skilled representation to clients under the supervision of skilled senior attorneys. The firm is well established such that its most Senior Attorney, Mr. Fred Walker passed away in the recent past but left behind his knowledge and integrity as examples of the way, we feel, a law firm should conduct itself. The younger members have assumed leadership of the firm (50-70 years of age) and exemplify the ethics and skill which Fred Walker will be forever remembered for at the firm.
