As chair of the firm’s Property Tax and Valuation Department, Gregory F. Servodidio focuses his practice on property valuation in the context of property tax appeals and eminent domain proceedings.

He represents property owners and lessees throughout Connecticut seeking equitable assessments of their real and personal property by municipal assessing authorities. He represents clients in negotiations with municipal officials, revaluation companies and personal property audit firms, and in appearances before local boards of assessment appeals. He contests inequitable assessments and assists taxpayers with the filing of personal property declarations, income and expense statements and exemption applications. Greg also represents individuals and entities seeking just compensation for their property taken by eminent domain. He has litigated numerous property tax and eminent domain appeals before the Superior, Appellate and Supreme Courts of Connecticut and has represented clients before local zoning boards of appeals and planning and zoning commissions.

Greg is a member of the Institute for Professionals in Taxation and has been published in its Property Tax Report, as well as the Commercial Record, the Journal of Property Tax Management, the New England Real Estate Journal and the Hartford Business Journal. He co-authored the Connecticut chapters of the American Bar Association’s Property Tax Deskbook and Fifty-State Survey: The Law of Eminent Domain and lectures frequently on property tax and eminent domain issues. He was appointed by the Connecticut Tax Court to co-chair an advisory committee on the implementation of Public Act 95-283, which provided for significant property tax reform, and has advised the Tax Court subsequently.
