Protecting our clients’ rights by

understanding the complexities of the law.



Our team of Eminent Domain & PUC Attorneys have assisted hundreds of landowners throughout Texas in handling the complex issues that arise when utility companies file administrative cases at the Public Utility Commission to route new transmission lines and when condemnors such as TxDOT, utility companies and pipeline companies take private property for new infrastructure.

Protecting our clients’ rights by understanding the complexities of the law and utilizing our extensive network of connections and other resources is what we do best. We face many of the same utilities and condemnors numerous times and understand the factors that motivate these entities to resolve cases on more favorable terms for our clients.   

We offer NO COST evaluations and consultations. If you have issues with either a power line routing case or a condemning authority such as TxDOT, a utility company, or a pipeline company, please give us a call FREE OF CHARGE. We will be happy to speak with you and will always keep your information confidential.
