Sound legal guidance since 1873


The United States Constitution and the Wisconsin Constitution guarantee that, "The property of no person shall be taken for public use without just compensation therefor."

The Terwilliger Law Firm has decades of experience in the field of condemnation, representing both property owners and condemning authorities in establishing what is a just compensation for the property owner whose property is being taken. Our law office has handled cases establishing just compensation when a property owner’s private property is taken by a condemning authority for highway and road purposes, for the construction of transmission lines, for pipelines, and for multiple other purposes.


We have the experience to win.

Because we have decades of experience representing property owners and condemning authorities, we know the strategies of the other side and can anticipate their every move. We have the experience and perspective to ensure that a just compensation is paid when private property is being taken.
