Edward D. McKirdy
Noted author, lecturer and litigator, Edward McKirdy ranks among New Jersey’s finest and most trusted eminent domain attorneys, winning millions of dollars in judgments and settlements for his varied clients—from major corporations to small businesses to individuals.
With over 45 years frontline experience, Mr. McKirdy has successfully argued before the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the appellate and trial courts and helped construct some of the most important principles of New Jersey condemnation law. He’s authored key books and articles on eminent domain, helped educate other attorneys, lectured to professional organizations, and served as special counsel to city, county and township jurisdictions throughout the state, winning selection as a top lawyer by New Jersey Monthly Magazine and New York Magazine.
He takes greatest pride, however, in helping his clients navigate complicated and sometimes counter-intuitive eminent domain procedures and garnering for them significantly greater compensation. Says McKirdy, “We’ve learned to guide our clients through the process knowledgeably and successfully.”
