Rights of Way

We are specialists in rights of way, or the right to pass over property owned by another party in the case where facilities such as highways, railroads or utility lines, including power, water, sewer and gas, are built.

Avigation Easements

We are experts in avigation easements, which are easements over private property near an airport that limits the height of structures and trees, resulting in restriction of use and property rights. We have experience representing airport authorities and individual property owners affected by avigation easements.

We are experienced in condemnation proceedings and eminent domain. Condemnation is the act or process of enforcing the right of eminent domain, which is the right of the government to take private property for public use.
