Condemnations 

Depend on Us as Your Advocates Throughout the Condemnation Process

Local, state, and federal governments can size private property for public use. Property owners receive compensation, but the process is often both stressful and full of uncertainty.

Equipped with an understanding of the complexities and loopholes in this specialized area of real estate law, our attorneys will advocate for you. We’ll use our knowledge and decades of experience to fight to protect your rights.

If you require help with legal matters associated with a condemnation, our real estate attorneys can help. We look out for your best interests by:

  • Helping maximize awards in condemnation proceedings
  • Assisting developers who have condemnation issues with their project’s development process
  • Advising lessees on their rights
  • Handling property sales to government bodies as an alternative to condemnation

We represent clients at administrative hearings and special commissioners’ hearings. We can recommend appraisers who have experience appraising condemned properties and testifying to their valuations. We’ll also pursue your case until we’ve obtained the compensation to which you’re entitled.

    Have questions? Need to speak to someone about your legal needs? We're here to help.
