Property Condemnation (Eminent Domain) Litigation
The legal proceedings to take private property for public purposes are known as eminent domain or condemnation.
Private property may be taken in a condemnation proceeding by the Department of Transportation, cities and towns, counties, public utilities and some other public bodies and certain private corporations.
An individual or business whose property is being condemned is faced with a number of important decisions. Our attorneys are experienced in representing property owners in condemnation proceedings, can help answer those questions, and can represent the property owner in negotiations, whether before or after any lawsuit is filed, and in litigation through a jury trial if that is required to determine the appropriate amount of just compensation.
