The state has the power to take real estate for its purposes.  That power can also be exercised by utility companies.  If a taking occurs, the landowner is entitled to payment for damages.  That’s the rub.  What are your damages?  The taking authority will have its opinion as to what your damages are.  We can help convince a judge or jury what reasonable damages are.

We believe we are uniquely situated to handle condemnation cases.  Our lead partner, John Lichtenegger, has successfully tried many cases over the years.  Ownership of commercial, farm ground and residential real estate in this state gives us an owners’ perspective.  Our trial experience and our knowledge of the value of real estate make us a worthy and trusted advisor/advocate in any condemnation case.  Call the Lichtenegger Law Firm,  we can help.
