What is eminent domain?

Eminent domain or condemnation is a legal process that grants government entities to seize private property for public purposes. Eminent domain is powered by the constitutions of both the United States and Ohio, and through various local statutes. In many cases, government entities may share the power of eminent domain with semi-private entities as utility companies and other organizations that work to benefit the public.

Have you suffered from it?

From these statutes, we can conclude that you have legal rights that government agencies need to respect. Among these rights, one states that you are entitled to know the basis of the appraisal and the offer made. When the agency makes an offer, they're required to provide the owner with an offer summary. The summary must identify the sales upon which the appraisal is based, as well as a general description of the property.

Take action. 

With us, you're in safe hands. We can ensure that the government’s exercise of power during the Ohio eminent domain process is duly authorized. We believe your rights to just and full compensation should be honored and protected through pre-condemnation planning, valuation, settlement negotiation, and trial.
