Why Hire an Eminent Domain Attorney?

  • Why not? — Generally, the condemning authority must pay both full compensation and your attorney’s fees.
  • Case Evaluation — An eminent domain lawyer can recognize the issues that will affect your recovery and work with you to secure the compensation and damages to which you are entitled.
  • Avoiding Pitfalls — An eminent domain attorney can help you address pitfalls that you may not recognize, such as a condemning authority’s right, unless properly limited, to use the property acquired for any purpose.
  • Expert Assistance — An eminent domain lawyer can hire appraisers, engineers and other experts, who will work on your case and agree to be paid by the condemning authority.
