Biersdorf and Associates devotes approximately 95% of its efforts to real property valuation litigation. These efforts are focused in two primary areas: property tax appeals and eminent domain claims. Our firm only represents property owners, never the government or condemning authority.
Our firm has represented owners with an array of property types, including manufacturing facilities, food distribution centers, office warehouses, multi-building corporate headquarters, freestanding retail facilities, strip centers, multi-family housing, hotels and many more. We have taken eminent domain cases to trial with disputed property values as high as $57 million.
Biersdorf & Associates has presented eminent domain cases in the appellate courts across the country, and has attorneys licensed in twenty states. The attorneys at Biersdorf & Associates can handle cases in all other states upon request.
Dan Biersdorf, principal attorney, has been a trial lawyer since 1977 and has degrees in mechanical engineering and law. Dan frequently lecturers on property valuation matters, lobbies for property owner rights, and has achieved the enactment of important new eminent domain legislation in various states.
Biersdorf & Associates has obtained a beneficial ruling for property owners regarding the determination of contamination value before the Minnesota Supreme Court. Our firm has also obtained an expansive valuation ruling that was favorable for property owners with multiple parcels affected by an eminent domain taking before the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which was the first decision on this issue in any appellate court in the United States.
