Eminent Domain Attorney
Since the government has the power of eminent domain, it can take private property and convert it for public use. However, the Fifth Amendment of the U.S Constitution requires the government to provide “just compensation” to the property owner in order to exercise eminent domain.

Eminent Domain Lawsuit
There are several ways that an eminent domain attorney can assist a private landowner. If the government begins clearing land or preparing for construction on your property before finishing a formal condemnation proceeding, we can defend your rights in court. When the government tries to take your property and offers you unsatisfactory compensation, we can represent you. It is not uncommon for government agencies to go after properties for the lowest price they can possibly get. It can be a battle for property owners to get a fair evaluation without effective legal representation.
Eminent Domain Law Firm
The Constitution requires the government to provide you with just compensation. Don’t let them evict you from your home without paying the price you deserve. Contact Marcellino & Tyson, PLLC as soon as you receive an eviction notice. Our law firm is experienced in working with appraisers to prove the true value of your home to the court.
Our attorneys can also help you seek compensation if a government project on nearby land negatively impacts the value of your property. If government construction projects have lowered your property value or affected your ability to use your property, you may be able to claim compensation. In these cases, the real estate often loses value due to a zoning change. For example, property in an industrial zone may not be worth as much as property in a residential zone. This is not exactly a case of eminent domain, but it requires similar legal knowledge.
