Former NCDOT Attorneys Holding Pro Bono Seminar for 100+ Franklin County Property Owners Affected by 401 Widening

Share Article

The NCDOT’s plans widen 401 in Wake Forest, but the process will take land from over a hundred Franklin County property owners. Two former NCDOT attorneys, who now work for the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm, are responding by hosting a pro bono seminar on Thursday, May 7th, 2015 to educate property owners about their options.

“If an offer has been made, there may be a more complete and satisfactory offer to be gained through reappraisal and negotiations,” said Attorney Stan Abrams.

The NCDOT finally plans to complete the 401 widening where the Rolesville Bypass left off in Wake Forest, but the process will take land from over 100 Franklin County property owners.

According to former NCDOT attorney Stan Abrams, property owners will receive offers from the NCDOT any day now, but these offers are not necessarily everything they’re entitled to.

“Homeowners receive a very official offer and think that is the ‘law’ for what they are able to receive,” Abrams said. “If an offer has been made, there may be a more complete and satisfactory offer to be gained through reappraisal and negotiations.”

To help property owners try to find that “more complete and satisfactory offer,” Abrams and his colleague, Jason Campbell, are giving a free seminar to educate home, business, and land owners about their rights and options. The seminar will be held at 7pm on Thursday, May 7th at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites located at 11400 Common Oaks Drive, Raleigh, NC.

Advice from Former NCDOT Attorneys

Abrams and Campbell are both former attorneys for the North Carolina Department of Transportation. According to Campbell, they left the NCDOT and joined the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm to help “even the playing field” for property owners, which they hope to help accomplish at their seminar.

“We’ll be giving away some really valuable information – such as how property owners may be able collect the government’s first offer, without technically accepting it, so they at least have some money to use while negotiating for more,” Campbell said. “We’ll also be available to answer questions about individual properties and situations afterwards.”

Other topics for the seminar include:

  • How are NCDOT offers calculated?
  • What is “fair market value”?
  • What if my space is leased? Will there be any relocation benefits?
  • How can I know if the offer for my property is fair?
