3 reasons not to fight eminent domain battles alone

Eminent domain issues arise for small businesses or residents who own property that public agencies are looking to develop for various projects. When faced with an offer from such agencies, many people don't know that they have rights and options. While avoiding eminent domain completely is difficult, it does happen. Even if you end up selling your property, you certainly don't have to accept a bottom-barrel offer. By working with an experienced law firm, you can protect your interests.

The first reason not to face eminent domain issues alone is that they almost always create David-and-Goliath situations. Most home owners and small business owners don't have the knowledge to fight against a public agency with more experience, more time and more resources. By working with a lawyer who keeps up with eminent domain, you even the playing field a bit.

The second reason to get professional help is that the laws change constantly, and a small detail in the process or negotiation can make a big difference in how well your interests are protected. When working with eminent domain cases, you have to be able to adhere to the correct legal procedures and schedule to avoid having any motions or other filings dismissed or ignored.

Finally, a reason to work with a lawyer in such cases is to protect your interests without sacrificing your life and other obligations. Our firm works with you to handle many of the details and paperwork associated with fighting or negotiating eminent domain issues. That means you have time to run your own business, attend to work and enjoy your family without giving up all your rights.
