Avant & Mitchell, LP is a firm with dedicated staff and extensive experience in all levels of condemnation and valuation disputes. We understand the constitutional right to fair compensation and Texas Condemnation Law.
We represent property owners, people and businesses throughout Texas. We do not charge for travel time.
Our philosophy and practice is to provide each client and condemnation case personal attention of a partner, each with over 20 years' experience.
Our attorneys and staff have thorough, hands-on, real life experience. This depth, together with relationships with local counsel, provides the resources needed to successfully handle condemnation disputes concerning any type of property, anywhere in the State of Texas.
Each attorney has over 20 years experience in handling of government takings, and condemnation cases, real estate valuation, and constitutional rights, and maintains an in-depth knowledge of Eminent Domain issues and appraisal developments. Our practice covers a wide geographical area and all major Texas roadways, including cases involving the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Transportation Authority, or corporations wielding the power of Eminent Domain (such as ONCOR and high-voltage transmission line companies, pipeline companies, or toll road contractors).
We Want Owners to Understand the Condemnation Process
The power to condemn is tempered by numerous rights secured to property owners by law. Through the condemnation process, the government and selected privately owned companies have the power to take your property for a public purpose, and the onerous burden to assure that market value is paid for the property taken through Eminent Domain. Texas has no department charged with assuring that owners receive true value.
We work with both in-house and local counsel needing support during the condemnation process. For more information about Eminent Domain and the condemnation process, feel free to call. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
