Phoenix Condemnation & Eminent Domain Lawyers

In virtually any interpretation of the American dream, the attainment of property ownership is a significant marker of success. This is but one reason that one’s home often becomes a focal point of his or her pride and ongoing financial investment. Personal homes and other property holdings become the central location of important memories and priceless experiences for entire families. But the enforcement of eminent domain by civic governments and agencies can strip all of that away.

If you have received notice that your personal or business property may be seized in this manner, it is important that you have a skilled and experienced attorney representing your interests. This can help you to oppose the move altogether or simply to ensure that you receive adequate financial compensation for the seizure.

Common Reasons for Property Seizure

The rationale behind the concept of eminent domain is essentially that the government should have the authority to take control of real estate if its re-purposing serves a prevailing public good. But the reality is that it often takes a property away from a family that has owned it for generations, and it may take away the one truly valuable thing that someone owns. Understandably, this can cause serious psychological strain.

Condemnation is the term for the actual act by which control is formally seized, most typically for the following reasons:

  • Construction of public utilities
  • Construction of highways
  • Construction of railroads
  • Economic development (perceived to benefit the community as a whole)
