Legal Services For Inverse Condemnation And Eminent Domain

There are a few reasons you may require a condemnation attorney in or around Irvine, California. Eminent domain refers to the government’s right to take private property for public use. However, the government must provide property owners just compensation for their losses. Condemnation proceedings are initiated by governments. Meanwhile, inverse condemnation suits are brought by property owners who believe that the government has taken or damaged private property without following the Eminent Domain Law and without filing an eminent domain case.

Our inverse condemnation attorneys focus on how landowners can obtain just compensation for public sector projects or takings. If you believe your property has been taken or damaged by government action or inaction, it is in your best interest to contact one of our condemnation attorneys.

Why Should An Inverse Condemnation Attorney Be Hired For An Eminent Domain Case?

Inverse condemnation can involve a complex process in order to obtain constitutionally mandated just compensation for the government’s taking and/or damaging of private property.  Hiring the right inverse condemnation attorney is crucial to assist you in navigating that process.
