Eminent Domain for Roadway Construction
Protecting The Rights of Property Owners Threatened With Eminent Domain for Roadway Construction Projects
You have received notice of intent to appropriate your property so that the state, county or municipality can build a road. What are your options when facing eminent domain for roadway construction? Can you contest the taking of your property? If you can’t prevent the appropriation of your property, can you get more compensation?
If you are a property owner threatened with appropriation, you can take action to protect your rights and property. You can challenge the taking itself in a hearing before a judge, and if necessary, seek more compensation in a jury trial.

Our trial lawyers have extensive experience in civil litigation and the advocacy skills needed to represent you. Too much is at stake for you not to respond to this threat in an effective way.

Revising The Valuation Placed On Your Property
In some eminent domain cases, it may be possible to challenge the appropriation itself, by showing that the taking does not advance a public good. However, challenges on this basis are not usually successful. Typically, the dispute concerns the valuation placed on the property. When representing you, our attorneys will analyze the factual and legal issues in your case and explain your legal options.
If we believe that we can prevail in the hearing regarding the appropriation itself, we will vigorously represent you. Alternatively, we can represent you in negotiations with the appropriating agency or in a jury trial seeking to obtain more compensation for you. Supported by studies made by one or more appraisers, we will seek full and fair compensation for the taking of your property.
