Eminent Domain

Know your options and exercise your rights!

The power of the government to take private land under eminent domain may seem inevitable to the landowner when they do not understand their options. Often, there is a significant gap between what the government considers fair or just compensation and the actual impact of the taking to the landowner. Experienced legal counsel, knowledgeable in the steps taken by various government bodies in eminent domain actions, can make a significant difference to the outcome.

At the Law Offices of Kermitt Waters, we believe that the results we have achieved for our clients speak for themselves.

We know how government tactics can intimidate landowners in eminent domain actions and that’s why we are committed to exclusively helping landowners understand the process, explore all of their options, and create a strategy to ensure that every avenue is pursued until just compensation is delivered—just as our founding fathers intended in the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Our team has navigated hundreds of negotiations, hearings, valuation disputes, and eminent domain trials and appeals including:

  • Complete takings
  • Partial takings
  • Temporary takings
  • Easements and rights of way
  • And more

We represent property owners of all sizes and types, including:

  • Individuals
  • Businesses
  • Lenders
  • Real estate brokers
  • Attorneys who do not have a special focus in this area
