Condemnation on State Route 322 by PennDOT

My property was being taken as a result of eminent domain. The initial offer from the state (PennDOT) was low. I was frustrated because I was unfamiliar with the process, and what I needed to do in order to receive a fair settlement. Fortunately, I found Christopher Duerr. He gave me expert advice, and a plan of attach. Although I was hard to reach, at times, because of my heavy work load, and travel, Mr. Duerr was proactive and got things moving. I couldn’t be more happy with the result. After expenses, which were pleasantly fair, I ended up with approximately 110% additional. This gentleman is a true professional and is definitely the person you want going to battle for you.

Condemnation on State Route 322 by PennDOT

I am writing this to recommend attorney Chris Duerr. Chris contacted me by letter about the condemnation of my commerical property on State Route 322 by PennDOT. Several attorneys had contacted me but what made Chris stand out was his previous eminent domain experience as an attorney for PennDOT and how personable and relatable he was and continues to be to me. He is easy to contact and easy to talk to. He explained the process to me as many times as I needed. Chris was able to easily guide me through the process and obtain a significant increase in what PennDOT originally offered for my property. Some of my neighbors on 322 have paid significantly more in legal fees and still do not have a resolution. Chris has been responsive to my questions and thoroughly addressed all of the complex issues that I faced from property value, moving, leases, new replacement property and litigation. I am very pleased to have selected Chris to represent me and fully recommend him to anyone facing the prospect of having their property condemned.

Condemnation by The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission

I recently worked with Chris when the Pa Turnpike wanted a right of way at my residence. He was very professional and gave my wife and I sound advice. He eliminated quite a bit of the hassle of dealing with the Turnpike and the overall right of way issue. Ultimately, we believe we were treated fairly and respectfully by the Turnpike and we credit Chris’ work for how we were treated.

Real Estate Property Tax Appeal

I am the President of a local Swim Club in Maple Glen Pennsylvania. I had done some online research and determined that our property tax was out of line with other local clubs. Our board decided that we needed to apply for a tax reduction appeal. We spoke to a few different attorneys we decided to work with Chris based on his background and experience. Chris handled our appeal with the Montgomery County tax assessors. Chris handled all the paperwork, took care of all of the scheduling, attended the hearing and we won 100% of our request. I can’t say enough about Chris’s quality and our experience working with him. He was always available and very helpful throughout the entire process.

Sensitive Deed Transfer

Chris was a fantastic attorney to work with regarding a sensitive family inheritance situation. Chris thoroughly researched the options and financial implications and made a strong recommendation that was definitely the right choice for all parties involved. Chris not only provided options, but he was also very strong in the execution and follow up required to bring this transaction to the appropriate conclusion. I would highly recommend Chris as an expert real estate attorney with a broad range of experience and excellent execution.
