Q: Does this document eliminate the need to consult an attorney in such cases?

A: Although it provides a wealth of information, the Landowner's Bill of Rights does not substantively change Oklahoma law. The legal process of condemnation is still a complicated and confusing thicket of statutes and case law. Any landowner faced with the possibility of condemnation would be wise to consult with an attorney with experience in condemnation as soon as possible.
