At the law firm of Sever Storey, we know that condemnation cases can happen anywhere in the United States. The government and private companies are constantly proposing and initiating new projects of all types that may require the use of private lands. Whether you live in a city or rural area, own a business, farm, or rental property, or simply own a home, your property may be the subject of eminent domain.
To best help landowners protect their rights under the Fifth Amendment and state law, our firm serves clients nationwide and has offices in multiple states. We constantly work on cases involving various major projects, and the following are some examples of the ways with which we help affected landowners. If your land may be involved in any of the following or you are facing eminent domain for any other reason, please do not hesitate to contact our office for a consultation.

Some of the above projects may only affect a handful of landowners, while others are major undertakings that involve hundreds of private properties. No matter how big or small a project, any landowners who may have their property threatened should always consult with a law firm that understands and upholds landowner rights in takings cases.
If the government or a company wants to take part or all of your land, you have options. You can agree to the offer, though you should always have an attorney review it first. You can have your attorney negotiate for the price you truly deserve for your land. In some situations, you may even fight against the taking altogether.
At Sever Storey, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of landowners facing a possible condemnation action. Our main offices are located in Springfield, Illinois; Carmel, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; Dublin, Ohio; and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. However, we do not limit our services to these states and may be able to assist you no matter where your property is located. There can be a lot on the line in every eminent domain case—and you have nothing to lose by contacting our office to discuss your rights and options. Please call an eminent domain attorney at (888) 318-3761 for more information today.
