Missouri Condemnation Law

Springfield Attorneys Serving Missouri for Over 100 Years

At Neale & Newman, L.L.P. we keep abreast of the changes and the court decisions that impact Missouri condemnation requirements and procedures for effective state court representation. Often, parties are able to negotiate reasonable settlements for condemned property. However, when negotiations fail, you need attorneys who know the system, the pitfalls, and the opportunities that can be gained with a thorough knowledge of this area of the law. Our attorneys often:

  • Assist with selection of state-certified appraisers who serve as expert witnesses
  • Communicate with landowners on notice requirements under state law
  • Provide guidance on valuation issues that impact ultimate condemnation awards
  • Initiate the condemnation process seeking judicial orders for condemnation
  • Recommend condemnation commissioners who will consider valuations in the best interest of our clients
  • Present evidence to the court at all stages of the condemnation process including the final hearing on value
  • Protect client interests in the event of appeals or challenges to court rulings and awards
