When Government Oversteps

You may think that the property you own is yours to keep or sell as you see fit, but it is possible for the government or its representatives to take land for public use whether you wish to sell it or not. In some cases, you may not be paid fairly for the property they take, and if you have been paid unfairly, you want aggressive representation to fight for your rights.

Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire represents Californians whose property has been condemned or taken through the eminent domain process. Our condemnation team has been awarded some of the largest condemnation verdicts and settlements in California history.

It’s In The Constitution – You Must Be Paid Fairly For Your Property

When your property is taken through eminent domain, it is supposed to be done with the public good in mind, and you should receive fair compensation for what you have lost. Your property might be taken to assist the local fire department or school board, to allow for electric transmission or gas pipelines to pass through, to facilitate the building of a new road, or for any other use that will benefit the municipality you live in.

Some of the many questions that must be asked in any eminent domain case include:

  • Was the property taken for public use?
  • Were you paid fairly as compensation for your property?
  • Was damage done to your remaining property as a result of the condemnation or seizure of your property?
  • Was your business harmed by the taking of your property?

When you are facing any of these municipal powers, it can feel like an unfair fight.
