Jacksonville Eminent Domain Lawyers
Eminent domain is the legal term for when any government agency – local, county, state or federal – decides to take a person’s private property for public use without the owner’s consent. This property seizure involves a condemnation and is supposedly for the greater good of a community. And with the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, not only can the property be taken for a public purpose, but also now it can be seized for a private purpose, such as a new shopping mall. If you are facing a property seizure, contact our eminent domain attorneys at the Law Offices of Nooney & Roberts in Jacksonville, Florida.
No Parcel of Land is Too Small for Us to Fight For
Often the Florida Department of Transportation is involved in a property seizure, such as when they decide that a road needs to be built or widened. Regardless of whether the property is a two feet wide strip of land in front of a person’s house or something larger, our Florida property lawyers willingly represent clients with smaller cases because we believe in protecting people’s property rights.
If the government decides to seize your property, the homeowner will get a letter saying their land will be condemned for public or private use. When this happens, it is in your best interest to call our property seizure law firm as soon as possible so that our knowledgeable attorneys can gather evidence and put together a strong legal case on your behalf.
If the government has condemned your property, the government will set an arbitrary value on your land. First, we will attempt to prevent the property seizure. If this is not possible or too costly, our experienced lawyers will negotiate to get as much value for your property as possible.
Florida’s Eminent Domain Laws Are Among Nation’s Fairest
In many other states, property owners are responsible for their own attorney’s legal fees and expenses for appraisers to contest the condemnation. However, in Florida, the state realizes the financial hardships involved for landowners facing eminent domain issues, and pays for these costs. Therefore, there is no cost or risk to you to request our assistance.
