Houston Inverse Condemnation Attorneys - (713) 496-0504

Serving Clients All Across Texas

In the typical eminent domain scenario, the government takes direct action to acquire private property by negotiating a purchase or initiating condemnation proceedings. However, the government might take or damage property without paying fair compensation, even through legislation. Inverse condemnation occurs when a property is no longer valuable due to sewage, flooding, air pollution, and noise pollution.

Dedicated Advocates for Property Owners

At McDowell Wells, LLP, we are dedicated to defending property owners' rights throughout Texas. Our attorneys have the experience and persistence it takes to oppose the government (or other condemning authorities) in these complex claims. Additionally, we are well-versed in the nuances of eminent domain law - a niche field that only a small percentage of lawyers will tackle. Our combined legal knowledge, business acumen, and litigation skills makes us the ideal advocates for residential and business property owners alike.

Aggressively Challenging Regulatory Takings

Indirect takings sometimes occur under the guise of lawmaking. When the government imposes such strict regulations that the property is left with zero value, the impact on the owner is essentially the same as if the government had expropriated the property outright. This same outcome may also result from land use restrictions, denials of vital permits, and other regulatory actions.

Our firm represents property owners in all types of inverse condemnation claims, including regulatory takings. We possess a thorough grasp of the vast body of state and federal case law that governs these claims. You can turn to us for thorough and accurate guidance.
