Corsicana, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/11/2018 --The Texas eminent domain law firm of Dawson & Sodd, LLP is pleased to welcome a new ally in our fight to protect landowners' rights in Texas. Clint Schumacher recently joined the firm as a partner, bringing more than 20 years of experience as an eminent domain attorney, extensive litigation skills, a keen eye for detail in complex cases, and a dedication to excellence that sets him apart from his peers.

"We couldn't be more excited to add Clint to our already impressive list of trial attorneys. We believe Clint brings a unique perspective to the firm and will enable us to fight for Texas landowners with an even stronger team of property rights' advocates," says Jody McSpadden, managing partner of Dawson & Sodd, LLP.

Eminent Domain Experience

In more than two decades of legal practice, Schumacher has represented property owners big and small who faced losing their land because of public projects. He has extensive experience in cases involving condemnation for highway projects and has built a reputation for both working with condemning authorities to try to minimize the impact of these projects while also aggressively pursuing maximum compensation for the landowner.

Schumacher continually seeks to advance his already impressive litigation skills. He studies and practices the art of effective advocacy, consults with leading trial and jury consultants, and listens to past jurors discuss their experiences.

Before joining Dawson & Sodd, Schumacher represented regional toll authorities and mass-transit authorities in some of the largest projects in north and east Texas, which gives him a unique perspective of how these authorities approach eminent domain cases when representing landowners.
