Based in Austin, Womack McClish Wall & Foster, P.C. has counseled clients in thousands of condemnation and eminent domain cases throughout Texas. Our property rights lawyers have a combined 75 years of experience representing landowners through each step of the condemnation and eminent domain process, from administrative settlements and Special Commissioners' Hearings to civil trials and appeals.
Broad Experience Representing Landowners
Our firm has served as landowners' counsel on all types of condemnation projects, including drainage projects, pipelines, water treatment plants, and electric transmission lines. We have also assisted many clients facing condemnation due to highway projects, including involving I 35, US 290, SH 121, SH 360, SH 183, US 75 Central Expressway, SH 130, SH 45, US 183, US 183A, and other significant thoroughfares.
We also handle inverse condemnation matters where government activities result in a "taking" of property without the condemnation process being initiated. These matters may include an actual physical invasion of the property or a regulation of property that goes beyond the government's police power, resulting in a "taking" or damaging of property.
Helping Large Businesses and Individual Landowners Obtain Fair Compensation
Our clients range from some of the state's most notable figures and businesses, to everyday Texans who suspect they are being taken advantage of by the government. Regardless of the size of the case, we strive to ensure that our clients are justly compensated for their property. Our practice is dedicated almost exclusively to condemnation and land use issues, giving us a comprehensive understanding of the appraisal process and legal principles affecting this area, as well as the skills and experience to counter the government's considerable resources.
A Comprehensive Understanding of the Changing Texas Landscape
Texas boasts one of the fastest-growing economies in the country. As infrastructure continues to expand, state landowners will continue to face acquisitions due to a number of new projects, including the Trans Texas Corridor, I 69, SH 45, SH 121, the Hutto to Clear Springs project, renewable energy zones (CREZ) that will be developed for wind energy, and numerous other proposed projects currently under consideration by governmental entities and legislators. Whether your land is taken by the Texas Department of Transportation, by a local utility district, by a municipal or county government, or by any other governmental entity, our lawyers have the skills and experience to help.
