What is it?
Eminent domain is the right of the government to take private property for public use upon payment of “just compensation.”
Why it happens
Eminent domain is the right of the government to take private property for public use upon payment of “just compensation.” It helps make possible building our roads, schools and other public facilities. At the same time, it creates a difficult and intimidating experience for the property or business owner who is facing the prospect of condemnation or having his or her property acquired for a public project.

Joe Dzida represented our company in an eminent domain case with the State of California. In the land taking for a high speed rail line, the State left us without enough land to operate our business into the future. Joe’s excellent representation on a contingency basis resulted in us acquiring the land next to our property and a payment from the State that was over 6 times greater than their original offer. We can now operate and grow our business the way it was planned when we purchased the property. A solid 5 stars and our highest recommendation for this company.Kim Crumpacker
