Municipal Law Counsel for Private Citizens

In municipalities that Henry & Beaver does not represent, we can serve the interests of individual homeowners and business owners. We are available to represent any of the property owners facing eminent domain condemnation for the railroad overpass through Lebanon. Our role is to ensure that clients receive fair market value for land and buildings and fair compensation for the loss, relocation or disruption of a business.
