Pipeline Information

Waldo & Lyle’s attorneys have extensive experience handling eminent domain cases involving natural gas pipeline projects. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of pipeline condemnation cases in state court and in federal court in both the Western and Eastern Districts of Virginia. We have helped property owners in Smyth, Wythe, Carroll, Floyd, Patrick, Henry, Buckingham, Halifax, Pittsylvania, Mecklenburg, Louisa, Shenandoah, and New Kent Counties recover just compensation for the taking and damaging of their property for natural gas pipelines. Our experience, coupled with our commitment only to represent property owners in eminent domain cases, provides an advantage to our clients as we zealously protect their constitutional rights and ensure that they are fully compensated by the gas companies.
