Minneapolis and Minnesota Eminent Domain Lawyers
We represent landowners of all types, from homeowners to owners of small and large businesses, as well as owners of farms and agricultural property. Frankman Law Offices has spent decades representing landowners in takings involving MNDOT, Counties, Cities, and other condemning authorities. We have experience and knowledge with the current Light-Rail Transit takings (SWLRT Green Line and Bottineau Blue Line). Also, we have represented many property owners impacted by the CapX2020 power line takings, including the “Buy the Farm” statute.
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 damages to the remaining property and for financial losses associated with loss of use.
Exclusively Representing Landowners
We are truly committed to protecting the rights of landowners. The government, whether it be MNDOT, the Met Council, 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.
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. Most importantly, we will always give you honest and dedicated representation.
