The law restricts the government from taking private property unless it is needed for a legitimate public use. Attorney Berg will aggressively pursue the legal rights of his clients and ensure that they are justly compensated.

Attorney Berg is former town counsel for West Brookfield, a former Assistant Attorney General and Special Assistant Attorney General for the Commenwealth of Massachusetts in the eminent domain division, and a past participant and lecturer on eminent domain and land valuation litigation for MCLE (Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education). Mr. Berg has also lectured for the Worcester Country Bar Association in the real estate law section on “Eminent Domain for the Real Estate¬†Practitioner.”
