That's why we developed these short educational videos featuring Eminent Domain Attorney Stan Abrams.

"Working for the state, I saw a real need for someone to help guide the individual property owner throughout this process and try to help them get a fair shake," Stan said. "The state has hundreds of experts and lawyers at their disposal to help ensure they get a good deal. But the individual property owners - what resources do they have? It's not a fair fight, in my opinion."
As one of Stan's clients put it, "He'll know both ends of the rope. And that's a good person to know."
