Rodgers Deutsch & Turner, P.L.L.C. is a law firm that for many years has limited its practice to representing property owners when the government is acquiring their property by eminent domain (condemnation), or in lieu thereof. We have collectively represented well over 1,000 owners in cases involving most every branch of the government. No case is too large or too small as evident from the fact that we regularly represent the entire spectrum of owners - from publicly traded national companies losing multi-million dollar buildings to homeowners losing a small portion of their front yard for street widening purposes.
Owners threatened with condemnation often assume that there is nothing that they can do. However, if that assumption was accurate, we would not have been able to resolve, to our clients' satisfaction, so many cases over the past 36 years. We understand the nuances of condemnation law, are familiar with most of the appraisers that are involved in condemnation appraisal work for both the government and owners, and have negotiated and worked with representatives of most of the governmental entities actively engaged in condemnations. We believe that this background provides our clients with an advantage during the course of the condemnation process.
