Eminent Domain (Condemnation Defense)
The governmental taking of private property rights for public use is never matter to be taken lightly. While fundamental limits restrict the governmental purpose for which property may be taken, procedural peculiarities can complicate the awarding of “just” compensation. The lawyers at TWG can help you avoid the messy and unpredictable outcomes which are many times associated with condemnation proceedings, but if the government’s exercise of eminent domain is imminent and unavoidable, procedural protections provide the only means of acceptable outcomes. Whether the experience involves the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition rules, or just a local municipal acquisition for a buried utility, the lawyers of TWG can help you through the process.
