Johnson & Cassidy has extensive experience representing property and business owners in eminent domain and condemnation matters against many different authorities with the power of eminent domain, including the federal government, state government, counties, municipalities, and public and private utility companies. We have also represented condemning authorities and can provide outside counsel service in litigating these matters for governmental entities. Our experience in these matters ranges from large land developers to home owners and from small businesses to national retailers. Our goal is always the same, just and full compensation for the property taken.
Johnson & Cassidy also represents property and business owners when governmental actions exceed what are considered “police powers” and rise to the level of a taking of property. This might be as simple as constructing a public improvement on lands privately held or as complex as regulating the use of a property to the point where all beneficial use of the property is eliminated. Johnson & Cassidy’s lawyers can evaluate these claims and help owners determine whether the government’s actions amount to an essential taking of the property in question; and if it becomes necessary to sue the government, we have the experience to litigate these matters all the way to a jury verdict.
When government threatens to take property or infringes upon the use of property, look to Johnson & Cassidy for assistance in providing a strong, experienced defense.
