Resolving Electrical Substations in Eminent Domain
Fighting for Landowners' Rights Since 1984
As a community expands and populations increase, utility companies typically
need to maximize and increase the efficiency of their electric supply
to residents and businesses by building electrical substations. Electrical
substations also require extensive land, which the utility company will
need to secure from private landowners. If you have been notified by the
utility company or government that your land is needed for an electrical
substation, talk to our Houston eminent domain lawyers at McDowell Wells,

Why Hire a Houston Eminent Domain Attorney?
While electrical substations are a necessary infrastructure, it is often
a very undesirable development for many homeowners to live near. The presence
of power lines is simply unattractive in a neighborhood. Electric substations
also produce odors and buzzing sounds that may interfere with one's
health. All of this quickly reduces the value of surrounding land. We
understand your concerns, and we can use our in-depth knowledge of eminent
domain law to help you fight for fair compensation.
Our firm can help protect you during the case by:
- Reviewing the monetary offer to evaluate whether it is the maximum settlement
you are entitled to receive
- Negotiating aggressively to maximize the value of your land
- Ensuring that the electrical substation is an authorized project and is
following the right legal protocols
- Creatively resolving disputes in a cost-conscious manner
- Protecting your landowner rights and making sure the utility company does
not take advantage of you
Our qualified attorneys can walk you through the steps and make sure that
you are being fairly compensated for your property, including land value,
relocation expenses, and other compensatory damages you may be entitled
to receive. While it is not necessary to hire a Houston eminent domain
lawyer, it is often recommended. Eminent domain laws and the process is
complex, and dealing with government authorities can be intimidating.
