Our employment law, real estate, and eminent domain attorneys combine the experience, sophistication and efficiency of a large law firm with the cost-effectiveness and personal attention of a small firm. We also take on cases on a contingency fee basis where we fight to protect your rights.
Eminent domain is the right of the government to take private property for public use upon payment of “just compensation.” It helps make possible building our roads, schools and other public facilities. At the same time, it creates a difficult and intimidating experience for the property or business owner who is facing the prospect of condemnation or having his or her property acquired for a public project.
Typically, employment in California is “at will.” What that means is that, unless your employer made a specific promise about the length of your employment in an employment contract, the employer can fire you or lay you off at any time with or without reason.
However, as knowledgeable employment lawyers with years of experience, our attorneys know there are numerous reasons for which your employer cannot fire you. If they do, you may have cause to file a wrongful termination lawsuit.
Finally, I wish to thank you for the exceptional service you have rendered our company. I was very impressed with the fine work that you have done and am very appreciative. I am very glad to get to know you and look forward to resolution on this case. As I mentioned, my (CFO) has told me that in his 50 years of working with attorneys he has never worked with a finer attorney than you. We certainly look forward to future work with you after this case is finalized.
Joe Dzida represented our company in an eminent domain case with the State of California. In the land taking for a high speed rail line, the State left us without enough land to operate our business into the future. Joe’s excellent representation on a contingency basis resulted in us acquiring the land next to our property and a payment from the State that was over 6 times greater than their original offer. We can now operate and grow our business the way it was planned when we purchased the property. A solid 5 stars and our highest recommendation for this company.
Joe Dzida was outstanding to work with and clearly is one of the best in the field of Eminent Domain law, Joe Dzida displayed excellent negotiation in settling my case. He was caring, always kept me informed and gave me the advise that I needed. I highly recommend Joe for legal representation.
For Robert Rogers: My wife and I are so grateful for all the help and support you gave us during a very difficult time in our lives. You are a great lawyer, but more importantly a great person, and I truly admire you.
I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for your professionalism, thank you for believing in me and financing my case without even knowing me. I think that your strategies produced excellent results, and I am delighted that I was referred to you and chose you to represent me. I want you to know that I also appreciate very deeply your patience with me. It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot. I have the feeling (and I hope so) that you and I made a good team where open and honest communication was the norm.
Thank you so much for your priceless time and effort assisting all of us. Your letter without a doubt has caused (our opponent) to reconsider their unethical and unlawful actions of simply going through the motions (without) providing due process. I cannot thank you enough. I most sincerely and profoundly thank you for doing this for me.
I wanted to thank you for all of your incredible support through this stressful process. I could not have done it without you. Thank you SO much for your confidence, honesty and diligence every step of the way. People like you restore my faith in the justice system. It is intimidating as hell to stand up to a multi-billion dollar corporation especially after disempowering discrimination and the challenging times I faced after my injury. Thank you for all of your support.
I do very much appreciate you following through and making this possible. It speaks to your knowledge and also care with how you approach your work and your advocacy for small business and people like me who will not be familiar with this intricate and complex process.
I want to take a moment to thank you. I have contacted a few attorneys. Many have given me vague information, and some have flat out stated that I have no case. You sir have really done some research and looked into this matter with a sense of care. I could tell when we spoke last week that you were very diligent in your questioning and out of the 50 or so attorneys I have conversed with over the past few weeks, you have been by far the most thorough.
I want you to know that I was very impressed with your deposition style.
Thanks for the good news and doing such a great job as our counsel. All of your efforts in leading us through this ordeal are truly appreciated.
