Private landowners are protected by our Constitutions. They are entitled to the maximum amount of just compensation in cases of eminent domain or inverse condemnation. Our team at the Law Offices of Kermitt Waters works to ensure that is the case for every client, every day.
Focused exclusively on eminent domain and inverse condemnation, Autumn Waters has worked on dozens of cases in Nevada including partial takings with severance damage, business takings, airspace takings, and government delay for property owners of all types and sizes. She knows, first hand, how government tactics can intimidate landowners facing an eminent domain taking and helps her clients navigate the obstacles to deal with the government on an even footing.
I am deeply committed to working on behalf of my landowner clients to insure that the protections established in the United States Constitution are justly served. Growing up, I watched my father tirelessly defend landowners against government abuse. I understood the value of his advocacy then and more so now as an attorney doing the exact same thing.
Representing individuals, businesses, lenders, real estate brokers, and other attorneys, Ms. Waters’ experience covers a wide range of property takings including; condominium homes, open land, industrial facilities, air space, and commercial buildings such as apartments, hotels, retail, and office complexes.
For example, she was able to intervene and provide protections for owners when facing the City’s inflexibility in handling the demolition of their condominium homes. When the City began to forcibly remove them with bulldozers while they were still occupied, Ms. Waters and the team at the Law Offices of Kermitt Waters came in to help them obtain full, just compensation that enabled them to purchase lovely new homes.
