Eminent Domain And Condemnation Lawyers

We have vast experience with representing private landowners when a governmental entity is taking private property in a condemnation case.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation has been condemning private property in our area for the construction of the proposed new Interstate 73 to Myrtle Beach, using the government’s power of eminent domain. We’ve assisted numerous private citizens and businesses with making sure they are paid the just and proper value for their property when it is taken in a government condemnation action.

Eminent domain law is not a simple matter. Case law and precedents run very deep, and few law firms have the knowledge to go head to head with the government on such matters. The attorneys of Douglas Jennings Law Firm, LLC, have the familiarity with the law and the passion to protect landowners needed to make sure they are treated fairly and receive just compensation when their private property is taken by the state or any other government entity.

If you have gotten a letter or notice from the state or any government entity, or if you are involved in any stage or aspect of eminent domain proceedings, we urge you to contact us. We can assist you in negotiating good faith offers, settlement, trial and appeal. A landowner’s attorney fees are often paid by the condemning agency. Our goal at all points is to ensure that you receive just compensation for your property.
