Ohio Eminent Domain and Condemnation

At Sever Storey, LANDOWNERS are our lawyers’ ONLY clients. WE believe that the State of Ohio and Federal constitutions demand that landowners receive just compensation for any property taken through condemnation and/or eminent domain. This belief is more than a mere attitude. This is our core and fundamental belief. It is our attorneys’ mission to represent Ohio landowners and ensure that the government or taking authority is held accountable under the Constitution for the true value of any land acquired through the eminent domain process. Our lawyers will never represent a State, municipality, public utility or any other taking authority.  Our firm and purpose are built around serving you, the Ohio landowner.

For many individuals visiting this website, this may be the first time you have had the pleasure of hiring an attorney. You likely have a few questions. So let’s get the big ones out of the way. Please keep in mind that no case is the same. The information below is designed to answer big picture legal questions. If you would like to discuss the particulars of your case, then please call or send one of our lawyers an email for a free evaluation.
