Condemnation/Eminent Domain

Gainesville, GA Condemnation and Eminent Domain Attorneys

How much is your property worth? If the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT), Georgia Power, the city, the county, or the state decides to take your land in a condemnation process, you are entitled to just compensation. Our eminent domain lawyers have handled many eminent domain cases. In essentially all of them, "just compensation" rarely described the first offer.

Our law firm handles eminent domain cases on an hourly or a contingency basis. In a contingency case, our fee** will be determined by the additional price we are able to negotiate or obtain for you.

  • Landowner rights: If you are a landowner, if you own commercial, residential, or farm property that the DOT, Georgia Power, or a part of the government needs, be sure to talk to an eminent domain lawyer who can explain your rights.
  • Condemnation proceedings: When your land or other real property is subject to a condemnation proceeding to make way for other uses (an interstate highway, a power line right-of-way, or other public uses), we can help you determine an appropriate response.
  • Just compensation: Your property cannot be taken by the government without just compensation. The amount offered can be well below market value. Contact a lawyer who can fight for a fair price for your land.
  • Growth and eminent domain: The Gainesville, Georgia area is in the midst of rapid growth. While growth may require new power transmission lines, new roads and highways, stream buffers, set backs, and other changes, property owners have the right to fair market value for their property.
