Statistics suggest that 75% of landowners will sign the pipeline agreements and negotiate a settlement without getting an attorney involved. The pipeline companies hope that you make that mistake. Be smarter than the 75%– learn about how you can protect your bottom line and your property by joining a landowner group.
Johnson & Johnson has recently teamed up with attorneys Steve Davis and Craig Vandervoort, also known as the Ohio Pipeline Attorneys. Steve, Craig and Molly are currently forming pipeline groups for both the ET Rover and Leach Xpress pipelines. We use our own tried-and-true method of individual representation within a group setting. We believe this gives our clients the best of both worlds.
Each member of the group will be a landowner whose property is affected by the pipeline. Although all members will enjoy the benefits of negotiating from a position of size and experience, each member enters an individual attorney-client agreement. Your information and final settlement amount is completely private and is not shared with other members of the group. In fact, we anticipate that all of our members’ final agreements will be subject to confidentiality agreements.
You can contact us at any time. Some clients call when they are approached for survey permission. Others wait until they have been given an offer. Either way, your first move is to notify the pipeline company that you are going to have the paperwork reviewed by an attorney and give us a call.
