Eminent Domain Disputes

Indianapolis Eminent Domain Attorneys

The government's demand for you to move or sell your commercial or residential property may seem unimaginable. You may feel like the government overstepped its boundaries, but the government has the authority to seize private property for public use. This is known as eminent domain. However, you do not have to give up everything when forced to comply with the law.

We have more than 50 years of combined experience advocating for landowners and developers in real estate litigation. With our experience on your side, you can be confident knowing your interests will be protected.

If the government needs your land for a public purpose, specific measures must be followed through the condemnation legal process to ensure you receive fair value for the land. We will make sure you are given nothing less. Contact our Indianapolis eminent domain lawyers to learn how we can protect your rights.

You Have Property Rights in the Condemnation Process

The state of Indiana and your local government cannot seize land on a whim. They are responsible to follow the legal process of condemnation to take landowners' property for a public purpose such as:

  • Road expansion
  • Construction of a public building
  • Building a new bridge, interstate or toll road

Although the government has the right to take property that can be used for a greater good in the community, you do not have to simply roll over and give into the government's request. You have a right to be compensated fairly for the land and improvements taken. Our real estate attorneys are highly skilled at protecting landowners' right to obtain a fair market value for their property.

We work with highly skilled appraisers who can determine the current and long-term market value of your property. We are committed to leveling the playing field in your favor. Our real estate attorneys are highly skilled at negotiating with the government using real numbers in our clients' best interests.
