If you believe that you may be affected by an eminent domain project, please contact us. You may not yet be fully informed of details concerning the proposed project. Often, we are able to find out more information about the project and review with you its potential impact on your property rights. We look forward to explaining how the eminent domain power may be exercised and, further, how your property rights may be protected.

Mr. Brigham is the Florida member of Owners’ Counsel of America

Testimonials

In 2018, Mr. Brigham and Mr. Tensfeldt secured the #33 top verdict among civil cases in Florida in a case styled FDOT vs. Taylor.

Why Us?

We are client-committed.

  • A truly successful protection of property rights begins and ends with the owner’s goals.
  • Our practice of law is devoted to solely representing property and business owners, not the government.
  • Property divides power between the sovereign and the individual.
  • Property provides the individual with their own piece of sovereignty and makes possible for citizens to both exercise their freedoms and be rewarded for their own industry.

We are cause-oriented.

  • We believe the protection and advancement of one of our most fundamental civil rights, private property ownership, has life and breadth in every case.
  • We desire to shape the law while protecting constitutional principles upon which our nation and state have been founded.
  • We understand both law and equity when resolving disputes between property interests.
  • Property does not have rights; people do.

We are results-driven.

  • Zeal is needed to advance private property interests; yet effectiveness requires more than passion.
  • We strive for an excellence in representing clients that requires both hard work and diligence in defending what is “right” or “correct” in a case.
  • It is important to understand that it is not enough just to be “right.”
  • We also know that we must find a way to “win with what is right.”
  • In 2008, Andrew Prince Brigham secured the largest jury verdict ($67.4 million) in eminent domain state court proceedings in a case styled Jaxport v. Keystone Coal Company.
  • Brigham Property Rights Law Firm obtained the largest jury verdict ($4.9 million) at the time against the Florida Department of Transportation in the preceeding five years from 2014-2019 in a case styled Florida Department of Transportation v. Taylor.
  • Brigham Property Rights Law Firm, obtained the largest presuit settlement ($23 million) at the time with the Florida Department of Transportation in the preceeding five years from 2014-2019 regarding the First Coast Outer Beltway.
  • In 2016-2019, Brigham Property Rights Law Firm represented property owners in 50 of the 263 cases filed by NextEra/Spectra Energy in Florida’s U.S. District Courts regarding the Sabal Trail Pipeline.  The property owners’ cases were spread out over Hamilton, Suwannee, Sumter, Levy, Marion, and Lake Counties.  While a majority of these cases resolved under confidential terms of settlement, 3 cases proceeded to jury trial with jury verdicts of $309,500$463,439, and $861,264, respectively.  On behalf of our clients, we defeated Sabal Trail’s contention that the use of its natural gas pipeline resulted in “zero damages”  for market fear or stigma.  Brigham Property Rights Law Firm is currently defending these cases on appeal before the U.S. Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
