"We had a substantial commercial property that was severely affected by a road project. The department of transportation offer of compensation was minimal. We spent a year using a large law firm but were unfortunately unable to make any progress. We hired the attorneys at Sever Storey after being recommended to them by our appraisers. They immediately took the time to fully understand the issues particular to our piece of commercial property and strongly advocated for fair compensation. Their approach was much more effective than our previous counsel. After putting together our arguments they were able to resolve our case for over three million dollars (30X) more than we were initially offered."

Like many landowners, you may not want to sell your land to your state department of transportation for a freeway project. But the government has the right to demand it. You may not want electrical poles placed on your land, but the government may order you to allow it.
These cases occur because of the government’s power of eminent domain. But is the agency offering you fair compensation? Or are you missing out on substantial funds and benefits that you have a right to?

Eminent domain is the government’s right to use your land for a public purpose. That means the government can compel you to sell your land. Or they can use your land in certain ways while you retain ownership of it (offering you an “easement” that defines their use of it).
“Eminent domain” refers to the power the government has over land. The word “condemnation” is related but different, referring to the process of exercising that power to buy your land for public use.
The agency taking your land has sophisticated and experienced legal counsel advising them. You need your own team to ensure that you are treated fairly. Sever Storey Walker eminent domain attorneys have helped thousands of clients increase their compensation and maximize their benefits.
