Charles S. Stratton

Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP

Before Charles Stratton entered private practice and began exclusively representing private property owners, Charles Stratton worked for the Florida Department of Transportation. His experience there gave him the opportunity to handle thousands of eminent domain cases across the state.

He started as a trial attorney for the department and was soon promoted, supervising other eminent domain attorneys in two of the department’s seven regional districts. In only a few years, he became the department’s Chief Eminent Domain Attorney for the state.

Mr. Stratton has been able to successfully stop condemning authorities from taking property, giving him leverage to negotiate better terms for his clients or to delay takings to provide clients more time to prepare.

Since entering private practice in 1986, Mr. Stratton has been involved in many eminent domain cases throughout the state. He has tried dozens of jury trials and appeals as necessary from one end of Florida to the other. He is a Florida Supreme Court certified mediator.

He strives to resolve his clients’ cases as favorably and swiftly as possible, and as his clients direct, whether this means using a swift mediation or facing down condemners in court.

He has represented numerous national and regional businesses affected by eminent domain, including churches, hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and car lots. He also represents many small business owners, individual home owners, and owners of vacant property.
