Twin Cities and Minnesota Eminent Domain -
At the Frankman Law Offices, our lawyers exclusively represent Minnesota landowners in complex cases involving eminent domain, condemnation and property rights. The 50 years plus of combined experience we bring to these cases means we understand this unique area of the law. We know the ins and outs. We know the individuals involved. We know what needs to be done to get you the compensation you are entitled to for land that has been taken and/or damaged.
Exclusively Representing Landowners
We represent landowners of all types, from homeowners to owners of small and large businesses, as well as owners of farms and agricultural property. Also, we have experience with the CapX2020 power line takings, including the "Buy the Farm" statute. Our law practice focuses on:
Our attorneys have proven results handling cases at all levels, from the commissioner's level to the district court and in the Minnesota Supreme Court.
We begin every case by going to your land to see firsthand the property that has or will be been taken and the damages accruing from that. Our goal, of course, is to get you just compensation, not only for the land taken, but for any remaining property and for financial losses associated with loss of use.
We are truly committed to protecting the rights of landowners. The government, whether it be MNDOT, the County, the City, or another condemning authority has enough resources on their side; it is important that the landowner has someone to protect them. Not only do we protect the landowner on an individual basis in these cases, our lawyers include the former president and current board members of the Minnesota Eminent Domain Institute (MEDI), which advocates for property owners' rights in eminent domain/condemnation matters.
Cases Usually Handled on a Contingency Fee Basis
We will only ask for payment if you recover more than the government has offered. Thanks to the new eminent domain laws, you may be reimbursed for some fees. We have experience in recovering those fees.
