Katie has practiced as a Colorado eminent domain attorney since the beginning of her career. She guides landowners through all stages of the condemnation process, from the notice of intent to negotiations and, when necessary, litigation. She assists clients in understanding their constitutional rights when their property is being taken. Because she has worked extensively with appraisers, surveyors, land planners and engineers, Katie can also help clients find the technical experts needed to arrive at a fair valuation of their property. Katie has helped clients achieve favorable outcomes in condemnation trials to juries and commissioners.
Katie also assists condemning entities with their projects, from the planning phase through property acquisition. As a condemnation lawyer who represents both condemnors and property owners, she has unique insights into the process and the objectives of both parties to a condemnation case.
