Eminent Domain

Tampa Lawyer Handling Florida Eminent Domain Cases Statewide

You may have heard the term “eminent domain” without thinking much about its meaning — until you encountered it in a letter about your land. If you live in the state of Florida and received government notice that your home or any portion of your property will be taken for public development, it is critical to contact a qualified lawyer.

You probably do have to sell your land, but you do not have to simply accept the government’s offer. In fact, this is a rare legal situation in which the government will pay your lawyer fees and the fees of the most qualified experts available to build your case for a more favorable valuation.
