State and federal eminent domain law guarantee that a private property owner will receive just compensation when a government entity exercises its right to take property for public uses.
Our firm represents public agencies in eminent domain litigation, if an agreement cannot be reached for the purchase of the private property. We handle the condemnation of property for such facilities as school sites, highway improvements, flood levee construction, and irrigation canals.
Our firm also represents individual property owners in certain cases, applying our knowledge of agency practices and requirements for the benefit of the person facing the exercise of eminent domain.
The law of condemnation has many facets, which we take into account when representing each of our clients. We protect our private clients’ constitutional right to just compensation.
