Speaker: James D. Bradbury, PPLC

Mr. Bradbury has practiced in the area of commercial litigation and eminent domain for many years, having acted as counsel to railroads, pipeline companies, water utilities, and landowners.  His experience includes managing large multi-parcel condemnation projects for an interstate railroad corporation, representation of pipeline companies in condemnation actions, and a major condemnation action involving a large airport facility.  In addition to issues of valuation, Mr. Bradbury has dealt with issues of the right to take, public purpose, negotiate in good faith requirement, prior public use and many issues under Chapter 21 of the Property Code. He recently served on the City of Fort Worth Task Force that negotiated and developed the Fort Worth’s Shale Drilling and Pipeline Ordinance.  He is familiar with regulatory aspects of shale drilling that is taking place in the Barnett Shale and other plays.

Mr. Bradbury has extensive trial experience and has served as counsel in over forty trials including thirty three trials as lead counsel. Recently, Mr. Bradbury obtained a sizeable award on behalf of a commercial condemnee, which resulted in the cancellation of the proposed road project by Texas Department of Transportation.  The action was dismissed and the client recovered its attorneys’ fees and costs.  He also obtained a judgment in excess of $5 million dollars on behalf of a general contractor regarding a federal highway construction project.  He also acts as lead counsel in appellate proceedings, and regularly appears in both state and federal courts.  He is admitted to practice before all appellate courts in Arkansas and Texas as well as the United States Courts of Appeal for the Fifth and Eighth Circuits.  Currently, he is representing several clients in a major highway condemnation project in Erath County, Texas and numerous clients on pipeline cases.
