Condemnation- Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO)

If have recently been contacted by Southwestern Electric Power Company (a unit of American Electric Power, or AEP) about the construction of the Valliant to Northwest Texarkana 345 kV transmission line in Bowie County, TX,  your property is in jeopardy of being condemned (taken by eminent domain). The important thing to remember is that even if you’ve received a letter from SWEPCO, this does NOT mean that it’s a done deal. There are many ways to influence the condemnation process to ensure that your wants and needs are met, but it’s important that you involve knowledgeable professionals that can help guide you through the process. Braun & Gresham, PLLC represents landowners in the condemnation process and will work diligently to protect your property, minimize impact, and ensure just compensation for damages.
