TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MansonBolves, Attorneys at Law, launched, a website that informs property owners who may be affected by the new Sabal Trail Transmission interstate pipeline project of their rights. Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC will be constructing a 600-mile natural gas pipeline that will originate in Alabama and move through Georgia and down the central spine of Florida. Sabal Trail Transmission representatives are contacting landowners to inform them that they will require all or some of their property. MansonBolves is making landowners aware of their rights.

With offices in Tampa, Tallahassee and Orlando, MansonBolves eminent domain attorneys are responding to questions from affected landowners. Brian Bolves, a pipeline attorney and one of Florida's leading eminent domain attorneys, is located in the Tampa office. He has represented a wide variety of organizations that have condemned property, both public and private, and managed the acquisition of thousands of parcels for energy and public works projects, including over twenty interstate pipeline projects.

"Unfortunately, many people are not aware of their rights," said Bolves. "When your property is being condemned for a project such as this one, Florida law allows you to hire an attorney to represent you. The gas company is a private utility that has the power of condemnation and therefore, will be responsible for the attorney's fees and experts fees associated with the representation in the State of Florida."

Doug Manson, President and Shareholder at MansonBolves, has more than 25 years experience representing both public and private sectors. "You have the right to full compensation for your land. But, the government's offer is not always a fair offer," said Manson. "Our goal is not only to make individuals aware of their rights, but to make them understand what it means."
