Our attorneys advise and represent individual property owners, municipalities, and companies in all aspects of the eminent domain and condemnation process. All levels of government are authorized to take privately owned land for public use, but not without fair compensation. Our experience working on behalf of government entities as well as landowners allows us unique insight into issues of eminent domain. Our knowledgeable attorneys ensure that our private property clients’ interests are represented as we accurately assess and challenge the need to condemn land or the valuation of just compensation for the owner.
For our government clients, we work to defend the right to exercise the appropriate use of eminent domain based upon public benefit, fair valuation, and just compensation. Our attorneys work effectively in each stage of the eminent domain and condemnation process, from negotiations for the acquisition of property, to the beginning of condemnation proceedings, and the determination of compensation through litigation or settlement.
