Eminent Domain/Condemnation

Allen Matkins advises and represents a broad range of clients in eminent domain/condemnation matters. Because of our extensive experience in this area, we can often achieve desired outcomes by acting proactively before any condemnation litigation is even filed.

We specialize in the following areas: 

  • Pre-condemnation strategic planning and relocation evaluation and planning 
  • Pre-litigation possession issues 
  • Unreasonable government pre-litigation and litigation tactics 
  • Right-to-take challenges 
  • Damages arising from pre-condemnation delay and blight 
  • Real property valuation 
  • Valuation of losses of business goodwill 
  • Severance damages that result when the government acquires just part of a property and leaves the remaining part less valuable or functional

  • Retail properties 
  • Office properties 
  • Medical-office properties 
  • Industrial properties 
  • Residential properties 
  • Mobile home parks 
  • Conservation properties
