A Firm That Understands The Eminent Domain Process

The eminent domain process is notorious for its complexity. Factors as varied as administrative regulations, constitutional law and property valuation need to be weighed and balanced in every case. That is why it is so important to have an attorney on your side with extensive experience in this area of the law.

Our founding attorney, Merle Bassett, spent years representing the state in its acquisition of private land. His daughter, Renee Bassett Butler, worked alongside him, giving her unique insight into negotiating a fair price for your property.
