Our case involved an established family farm and retail location that has been operated by our family since 1945.
I decided to retain Mr. Policastro’s firm after meeting him in person at our site. His professionalism and can-do attitude impressed me. I wasn’t disappointed.
What impressed me the most about Mr. Policastro and his associate Mr. Ryder is their response time. If I called with a question or concern they responded immediately. I have had experiences with other law firms that require multiple calls to get a response.
Mr. Policastro assembled an impressive team of engineers, appraisers, CPA’s and other professionals. The team worked to address issues concerning drainage, loss of use, loss of access and business damages. I was very pleased with the final results. Not only did Mr. Policastro obtain far more monetary compensation than I ever expected, he negotiated cures relating to drainage and access for our land.
I would recommend Mr. Policastro’s firm to anyone with an eminent domain case.

My case involved a large commercial site in Pensacola, Florida where the business I had grown for twenty-five years was located. The case included multiple parcels of land, the business and all the business equipment and fixtures. It was a multi-million dollar decision of a lifetime for myself and my family.
Tony asked that I meet with their team of experts to discuss my situation so, I made what was to become one of the most important journeys of my life. Tony, other members of the firm and staff were all assembled for me along with an engineer, appraiser, certified general contractor, CPA, and other specialist. I left this meeting feeling comfortable, informed and confident that I had an experienced team out front on my case.
As I watched Tony perform during our first hearing in front of the judge I became more confident and secure in the expected outcome of my case. Tony was successful in pointing out deficiencies in the State’s case and the strengths of our position. I believe his abilities at this hearing bolstered our prospects considerably for the upcoming negotiations with the Florida Department of Transportation.
In preparation for the negotiation appraisals were coordinated, reconstruction costs calculated, aerial photographs provided and financial statements reviewed so business damages could be estimated. Throughout the entire process I was kept informed and “in the loop.” Everyone in the firm and all the experts were available to answer my questions.
The result of this combined effort is that I have been able to restart my life comfortably and begin to rebuild my business in a new location. There is an old saying; “Thanks a million.” I’d like to say to Tony, and the team, “thanks for the extra million.” That is how much I received above what the State originally offered in settlement.

Tony has been retained to represent a number of my gas stations and convenience stores in eminent domain cases.
I have found Tony and his staff to be both knowledgeable and professional. Tony is very responsive to my questions and concerns and we have been happy on the awards that have been achieved and would recommend him to others in our industry.
When the Florida Department of Transportation condemned our property and took it through eminent domain, we were very naïve and unsure of the whole process. My husband and I were self-employed and have 5 children depending on us. The state was taking both our business and our home.
Tony Policastro and his staff of knowledgeable professionals were efficient and knew exactly what to do and when to do it.
We feel confident that if Tony had not represented us in this case, we would have had much more trouble and would not have received the settlement that we did.
