Your Property Rights And Legal Options In Texas
At the Barkhurst & Hinojosa, P.C., law firm in San Antonio, we inform condemnation and eminent domain clients of their rights, in accordance with state law, and legal options that increase their chances of keeping their land.
Never assume that the entity that takes your land will observe your rights as a Texas landowner. Likewise, do not assume that the offer you receive is truly just and adequate compensation as required by the Texas Constitution.
Our combined over 40 years of experience have shown us how to identify offers made by condemning authorities, and know how to obtain appraisals that are more in line with landowner needs. We pursue eminent domain cases through all phases of the condemnation process, to make sure that you receive the correct amount of money for your property.
