Owners’ Counsel of America Membership
Owners’ Counsel of America (OCA) attorneys have been carefully selected for membership based upon their ability, experience, results and dedication to representing private property owners in eminent domain, inverse condemnation and property rights matters. Membership in OCA is extended on an invitation-only basis and is restricted to one member-attorney per state across the country.
To be invited, prospective members must maintain an active eminent domain and property rights practice focused upon the representation of private owners. Candidates for membership should demonstrate outstanding professional achievement, a successful track record defending private property owners and a devotion to the advancement and protection of private property rights.
Property Rights Advocates Nationwide
OCA member-attorneys share a common goal of furthering and defending the rights of private property owners, large and small, locally and nationally. Regardless of their background, firm or home state, all OCA members have amassed significant experience representing and advocating for landowners and their constitutional rights in condemnation and property rights proceedings.
OCA member-attorneys are at the forefront of condemnation and property rights law. OCA lawyers have been involved in important property rights cases in nearly every state and every jurisdiction nationwide, including state appellate and supreme courts, federal courts of appeals, the U. S. Court of Federal Claims, and the United States Supreme Court. Additionally, OCA has participated as amicus curiae in some of the most significant takings and property rights cases that have been considered by the United States Supreme Court in recent years. More about OCA’s amicus efforts can be found on our Landmark Property Rights Cases page.
A National Resource for Eminent Domain and Property Rights Lawyers
As the lawyers on the front lines of takings law, OCA members understand the issues facing landowners and their attorneys nationwide. Owners’ Counsel of America serves as a resource to member-attorneys in the form of a national eminent domain “think tank” and as a platform for representing property owners across the country.
