Eminent Domain/Condemnation

Eminent domain is a unique and often complicated proceeding designed to determine the fair compensation to be paid to private property owners when their property is taken or damaged by the government. This area of legal practice requires a comprehensive understanding of multiple real property disciplines including constitutional law, litigation, civil procedure, zoning, land planning, engineering and land valuation. Illinois law guarantees the right to a jury trial for all parties to an eminent domain case.
