Understanding Eminent Domain

Eminent domain is defined as the power for the government to take property for the purpose of public use. Unfortunately, this might cause some landowners and business owners a substantial amount of unnecessary financial and emotional stress. Although eminent domain is not ideal, there is no need to go through the process alone. The Perry & Young law firm serves clients in eminent domain cases throughout the state of Florida. If you or a loved one has suffered harm due to what you believe is unlawful use of eminent domain, we will work tirelessly to obtain compensation for you. Call us at 850-215-7777 for a free consultation with a negligent drivers attorney or schedule online now. 

How it Works and Is Eminent Domain Justified?

According to Florida law, the government is required to attempt a fair negotiation with the landowner in good faith. They must also give a landowner a written offer. However, this is sometimes not the case, which is why it is important to seek an eminent domain attorney as soon as possible. Our law firm is equipped with a Florida eminent domain attorney who has served hundreds of Florida eminent domain cases throughout the course of his career.

Someone going through the eminent domain process might need an eminent domain attorney if the government taking of your property cannot be justified, if the compensation offered to you is not complete, or if there are hidden effects of the taking that you may not be aware of. Our Florida eminent domain law firm is here and ready to win your case. Call or text (850) 215-7777 now to schedule an appointment. With physical offices in Panama City, Panama City Beach, Marianna, and Tallahassee, our attorneys are here available 24/7 for in person or zoom consultations for Florida eminent domain cases.

Not only does an eminent domain lawyer help navigate the eminent domain process. They are also affordable. Clients do not pay for any service on behalf of the eminent domain attorney. In fact, the condemning attorney pays for the fees of the attorney and pays for the land taken from you. This means that clients of eminent domain cases in Florida pay no fees to their eminent domain attorneys.

So how do fees work with eminent domain cases? If the issue is resolved through negotiation prior to litigation, the government first pays a check to the attorney and client. The government also pays for the expert fees in the case. None of these fees come out of the client’s check. The cost of litigation is also paid by the government. This could include fees for costs related to appraisers, engineers, architects, and the cost of litigation. These funds come from the state, government, or condemning authority. Condemning authorities could include state, power, city, or any other official governmental entity.

Condemning authorities might take land they deem necessary for public purposes. That is why our law firm is here to help business owners and landowners navigate the process of Florida eminent domain cases with a qualified attorney.
