WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER?
REAL ESTATE is a major investment. While at times home or business owners may be able to negotiate what they consider a fair price for a property without representation—most often, owners will not maximize compensation from the government without a lawyer experienced in Eminent Domain, an unusual area of law with its own unique rules regarding compensation.
Do not risk losing money to the government on one of your biggest investments! To reach the optimal net result from a city, state or federal government body(dollars in your hand) in an eminent domain case, you should be represented by a competent, knowledgeable Eminent Domain attorney who can help you understand the full extent of compensation for which you may be entitled.
