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 is difficult and intimidating experience for property or business owner who is facing the prospect of condemnation or having his or her property acquired for a public project.

The Attorneys at Callanan, Rogers & Dzida, LLP, have over 40 years combined experience in the eminent domain (or condemnation) law. We have represented owners of all types of properties, from large commercial businesses to small family-owned businesses, from religious organizations to government entities.

When a property is being acquired by a governmental agency under a threat of condemnation through the power of eminent domain, a property or business owner should immediately get experienced legal help. The condemning agencies retain experienced eminent domain professionals, and you should too. Know and protect your rights:

  • Get experienced legal help
  • The government must pay the highest price paid by knowledgeable buyers on the open market.
  • In most situations you should pay attorney’s fees only if you recover more than the government’s offer.
