Owning a home or business property often represents years of hard work and savings. When the Department of Transportation (D.O.T.), a city or county, a pipeline, telephone or power company decides to take your property, you need a condemnation attorney with experience in condemnation (eminent domain) cases.
What is a Condemnation Attorney?
A condemnation attorney helps property owners obtain fair compensation for property that has been taken from them for a highway, lake, power line, pipeline or other public purpose. Bill Cannon, a condemnation attorney, knows the special rules that apply to condemnation and how to explain the value of your property to a jury.
Why Do I Need a Condemnation Attorney?
You only have one chance to obtain fair compensation for the property that has been taken from you. If you decide to negotiate with the D.O.T. or other governmental agency without representation by a condemnation attorney, you could easily fail to include an important element of damages. If you worried this could happen to you and your property, you should consult a condemnation attorney. In one case, Bill Cannon was able to convince a judge that a right of way claimed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation for years actually belonged to the property owners. Without the client hiring a well experienced condemnation attorney, the D.O.T. would not have paid at all for that tract of land.
