You May Not Need a Lawyer
Not every problem requires an attorney. But to know whether or not you may need a lawyer's help, you need to understand your rights and your options. We are dedicated to educating Texans about their rights in eminent domain or personal injury law so they can make confident choices regarding their case, including whether or not to hire an attorney.
We help you Understand Your Rights and Your Options
Before you negotiate with a condemnation right-of-way agent, insurance adjuster or the "other side", and before you sign anything, start with a free book, free call or free consultation. We give away this information to help you make smart choices regarding your case.
This Is Where It Gets Better
The government taking your land through eminent domain or being injured by someone else's negligence can be frightening and stressful. Deciding what to do about it can be exhausting and confusing. The legal process seems intimidating and every case is different. If you are feeling lost, afraid or frustrated by your legal situation, you have come to the right place to start making things better.

Our Client-First Fee Agreement for Eminent Domain
You wouldn't believe the low-ball offers we see being made to landowners like you when a corporation or the government wants to take your land for a public project. You owe it to yourself and your family to make sure you get maximum compensation. We believe you should not be tricked or bullied into accepting less than you deserve. We also believe you should be able to have a lawyer help you without any up-front legal fees.
For the eminent domain cases we accept, we do not charge any up-front fee. With our Client-First Fee Agreement you pay zero legal fees unless we get you more money than the first offer you receive. If we do get you more for your land than the first offer, our fee is a percentage of that additional value amount.
You are responsible for court costs and other expenses, but the sooner in the process we can resolve your claim the lower the legal fee (as low as 25% before expenses). So, by acting now you can get expert help obtaining maximum compensation and keep even more of it.
Texas places strict time limits on how long you have to resolve your claim. These deadlines can prevent you from ever protecting your rights or being properly compensated if you wait too long to begin. Also, gathering evidence is easier the sooner you begin, before witnesses move, memories fade and physical evidence is lost. And, if you need an expert, they need time to evaluate your situation and prepare their report. Simply put, starting sooner leads to a better outcome for your case. Don't wait!
