Standing up for Landowners. Standing up to Government.

Institutional and Special-Use Properties

Special-use properties such as churches, schools, and other institutional properties present unique compensation challenges. The fact that these properties do not trade in the market based on income produced does not mean they don’t have a market value or are not entitled to compensation. Recognizing the use and function of these properties before the taking can be the key to ensuring that the impacts to these properties are not underestimated.

Charles McFarland is board-certified in civil trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is one of just two lawyers in the state that earned this distinction by trying condemnation cases. He has won more jury verdicts for landowners than any other attorney in the state, including one of the largest jury verdicts ever achieved in a Texas condemnation case.

A good settlement is better than a great verdict. But it is a fact that great verdicts result in better settlements for our landowner clients. While we cherish our opportunities to get into the courtroom and fight for our clients, our laser focus is on maximizing our clients’ net recovery.

Most importantly, we love to talk to property owners. If your property is threatened for condemnation, we can help. Let’s talk.
