Litigation Support




Litigation Support Services


Rinker Design Associates has been providing professional Litigation Support Services throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than 25 years. Beginning in 1988, when RDA was first retained by VDOT to provide support to their attorneys in the condemnation of right-of-way for the Fairfax County Parkway; RDA’s staff of planners, right-of-way agents, and engineers have collaborated with numerous land owners, attorneys and public officials to provide vital services surrounding land and easement acquisitions. Typical services that RDA provides in this area include:

Additional services may include retaining other experts that specialize in a specific area, such as geotechnical services, that could provide assistance with any given project. In many cases, formal “certification” of public records to be used in the court proceedings is also necessary. RDA has provided this service many times, and is well-versed in obtaining such documentation.

Since the time RDA first began providing litigation support services, we have been involved in more than 300 cases. Most of these have settled, with only approximately 20% advancing to actual court proceedings. See below for a sampling of the current and past litigation support clients.
