Handling Condemnation with Class, Know-how, and Grit
The Allred Condemnation Part II:
Mr. Allred was impressed with Patrick’s negotiating ability — he was firm with his position, yet managed to keep from being adversarial. Not backing your opponent into a corner is important in negotiations, and Patrick handles this aspect like no one ever did before. Intimately knowing the ins-and-outs of the process, Patrick brought expertise to the table that Mr. Allred didn’t even know he was missing. Having worked on transmission line cases before, involving ten different companies, Patrick was very familiar with the details and knew many players in the game. He took Mr. Allred’s case and began working on getting him the best possible.
Patrick’s expertise and experience resulted in successfully negotiating a reduction of the number of times the lines that would cross the creek from FIVE down to only ONE— this is a huge win, as the environmental damage to the creek was put to a minimum. Patrick’s knowledge of utility corporations notoriously offering as little as possible in condemnation cases, led him to negotiate a compensation settlement four times the size of ONCOR’s original offer!
Mr. Allred is overjoyed with the way things turned out, and now considers Patrick a friend, as well as a top-notch lawyer!
