Charles “Chuck” Lollar, Sr.


Chuck has a passion for property rights. He has dedicated his nearly 40-year legal career to representing landowners in eminent domain and real estate rights matters. He has represented landowners and managed eminent domain and constitutional property rights claims for farmers, retail and commercial businesses, real estate developers, investors and other owners of private property, ranging from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses and homeowners.

Chuck advises his clients throughout the condemnation process, from the announcement of a public project, to the taking of a landowner’s property, to disbursement of monies paid for just compensation. He contests the right of condemning authorities to take private property where public use is not apparent, as well as pursues inverse condemnation claims arising when private property is acquired without payment of just compensation. He handles condemnation cases in state and federal courts in both North Carolina and Virginia.

Chuck has a strong background in commercial real estate and real estate litigation. He has been concentrating on real estate litigation since 1977, having tried many cases to a jury since his first property rights trial while in law school in 1976. He has lectured regularly at state and national conferences and published many articles on eminent domain and property rights.

Chuck received his undergraduate degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1972) and his JD from the Washington and Lee University School of Law (1977). He has earned the highest (AV) peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest attorney directory and rating service, and is also listed by Best Lawyers in America® for Eminent Domain and Condemnation and in Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers.
