Protecting Your Rights in an Eminent Domain or Condemnation Proceeding

The firm handles all matters involved when your property is subject to a taking by the government for a public purpose, a process known as eminent domain or condemnation. Eddy Meeks focuses his eminent domain practice on owner rights, working with you to challenge the attempt to take your property, if that is your objective, or to help you protect your property value and get full and fair compensation for the taking.

Because of his considerable experience, Eddy Meeks knows that expert witnesses are essential in eminent domain proceedings. He has built an extensive network of respected professionals to provide testimony to protect your property and financial interests. He will employ real estate experts to counter the government’s efforts to low-ball the value of your property. He will also help you seek remuneration for the loss in value of any property you have left, whether due to noise, pollution or trash from the public project.

If you have received notice of an attempt to take your property under eminent domain, it is imperative that you take prompt action to protect your rights. Without a timely response, you may lose your right to appeal to a jury.
