Representing Texas Property Owners
In Eminent Domain/Condemnation Cases
It’s your property. Whether you acquired it to develop, hold as an investment, or operate your business, you have it for a reason. No one cares more about it than you. So, when the State or some other governmental or public-use entity threatens to take your property, or even a portion of it, it can seem overwhelming. They have this incredible power, the right to take your property, and you don’t get a lot of say. They control how much they will take and when they will take it.
But when it comes to how much they have to pay, you do get a say. You have the right to contest their offer and recover full compensation not only for the market value of what they are taking but also the decreased market value of what you are left with after the taking.
We can help. At McFarland PLLC, we have a proven process for representing property owners in maximizing their recoveries for the taking of private property for highway, roadway, and other public infrastructure projects that impact retail, commercial, industrial, and special-use properties. It’s all we do, and we’re pretty good at it.
We have obtained successful jury verdicts, judgments, and awards in counties across the state of Texas over the past two decades.
Did we mention that we are focused? Our lawyers have successfully fought the State and governmental and public-use entities taking our clients’ private property all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Legal Specialization grants certification to a limited number of attorneys showing the relevant knowledge and expertise in various areas of the law. Unique in the State of Texas, Charles McFarland earned board certification in Civil Trial Law by trying condemnation cases. Our skill and experience in trying cases not only maximizes our clients’ recoveries in the courtroom, it helps us resolve many cases without necessity of trial, saving our clients expenses and increasing their net recovery. An attorney who can win in the courtroom achieves better results outside of the courtroom.
McFarland has obtained more jury verdicts on its property owner clients’ estimate amount of compensation than any other condemnation lawyer, including one of the largest jury verdicts ever against the State of Texas. We have a proven process that yields guaranteed results. If we aren’t able to achieve an increase in the compensation owed, we are not owed a fee. We put our clients in the best position possible for the best outcome achievable.
