There are about a half dozen pipelines being proposed that could cut all across the Ohio Valley. The potential pipelines mean hundreds of miles of property could be affected and it’s important for landowners to know their rights.
That’s why the law firm of Goldman and Braunstein held an informational meeting Monday night at the VFW Hall in St. Clairsville.
Bill Goldman says it’s important to have lawyers with experience in eminent domain who can understand potentially confusing language and stand up to gas companies.
“They say things that frighten people and 50-60% of the folks who are confronted with easements with like this will ultimately take dollars that are less than sufficient and they will take easements that will really screw up the value of their property in the future,” said Goldman.
