Federal, state, and local governments may take private property through their power of eminent domain or may regulate it by exercising their police power. The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires the government to provide just compensation to the owner of the private property to be taken.

We work with federal, state, county & municipal governments, quasi-public agencies, right-of-way firms and individual property owners in eminent domain valuations, to help determine just compensation. Hiring experienced legal counsel and a competent real estate appraiser, who fully understands the impact any taking can have on a property, can have a profound difference in the analysis.
