What Should I Do If My Land Is Going To Be Taken By Eminent Domain?

Eminent Domain, or land condemnation, is the right of the government to take your land if your property is needed for a public project, or even adjacent to land needed for a public project. While the laws around land condemnation state that you cannot say “no” if you are informed that your land is needed, the 5th Amendment of the US Constitution limits the government’s rights by providing that a property cannot “be taken for public use, without just compensation.” While it is possible to challenge whether the land is specifically for public use, in most cases, the legal battle is about ensuring that you receive just compensation for your land. Eminent domain is a complicated field of law, each and every case is different. Attorney David Parker, who has over four decades of experience in complex eminent domain cases, leads our skilled legal team in eminent domain cases. He has extensive experience in civil litigation and land disputes.
