Practice/Industry Group Overview

The Eminent Domain and Property Rights Litigation Group is a well-rounded team of attorneys with the necessary experience to advise property owners through all aspects of the condemnation process, and litigate their rights to full compensation in all state and federal courts. As the government continues to improve its existing roads, as well as new roads and other public facilities, eminent domain law has become much more than mere compensation for the land taken. Our attorneys, and the team of experts they use, are well-equipped to advise on access, parking, site circulation, visibility, storm water management, building codes and other such issues that arise as a result of a taking.

Our team also handles inverse condemnation matters where government action amounts to a taking of property, although government did not set out to do so. These matters include actual physical invasion of the property (e.g., flooding) and regulation of property that goes beyond the government's police power, rendering a property devoid of substantially all economic use.

Our team is also available to handle condemnation matters for private utilities and other such entities with the power of eminent domain, as well as matters for local governments.

Practice areas include:

  • Eminent Domain and Condemnation
  • Inverse Condemnation
  • Property Rights
