We Earn Your Trust
We Add Value
SECURE FAVORABLE COMPENSATION FOR OUR CLIENTS
When your property is being taken for a public project, you are entitled to fair compensation in the form of money. Our attorneys and consulting experts work diligently to obtain for our clients the compensation they deserve.
PROTECT OUR CLIENTS’ PROPERTY
Whether your property is being taken for a public project or is being sold or leased to a third party, your property rights will be conveyed by an easement agreement, lease agreement, or other type of real estate contract. The terms of these contracts can greatly affect the long term uses and value of your property. We work diligently to obtain legal protections and benefits, and ensure that each of our clients’ unique concerns are properly addressed.
FIGHT FOR OUR CLIENTS AND ENFORCE THEIR RIGHTS
Contract terms are only as good as your ability to enforce them. Conveyances of real estate often lead to situations where your contractual rights must be enforced. These enforcement efforts may begin as early as the signing of the contract, and may continue throughout the construction of the project and several years after. We work diligently to enforce the protections and benefits contained in the contract terms we obtain for our clients.
OFFER FLEXIBLE FEE ARRANGEMENTS
We offer numerous types of fee arrangements to ensure all of our landowner clients have access to first-class legal services. These arrangements include contingent fees where we only earn a fee if we improve our client’s position. We also offer hourly rates, and combination rates comprised of both a contingent and hourly component. The bottom line is, we go outside the box of traditional legal fees to ensure all of our clients have access to the legal services they need.
