Goldstein, Rikon, Rikon & Houghton, P.C. is the only firm in New York that limits its practice to eminent domain and condemnation law. Eminent domain refers to the sovereign’s power to take private property for a public use, provided that just compensation is paid. The firm was founded in 1923 by Samuel Goldstein and Nathan L. Goldstein to aggressively protect the constitutional rights of people whose property was forcibly acquired by condemnation or eminent domain. Today, the firm offers its clients the opportunity to retain counsel highly experienced in obtaining “just compensation.” More information about our firm can be found on our website by clicking here.
The purpose of this blog is to provide the public with information about the practice of eminent domain law. We also hope to share relevant updates and legal developments affecting this area of the law.
