Representing Government Agencies In Eminent Domain Cases

Governmental takings of property are often emotionally charged. However, without the right of inverse condemnation, it is unlikely that important and beneficial projects would ever be completed.

At the law firm of Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, our Baton Rouge eminent domain attorneys represent all types of government agencies in state and federal takings cases. We will work hard to ensure that the constitutional right to a government taking of property is respected and that fair, not extravagant, compensation is offered to the property owner.

Tough, Proactive Assistance In Negotiations And Litigation

Many property owners feel that the government’s exercise of its eminent domain powers is fundamentally unfair. As such, they will tend to demand compensation for the land in question that is far more than what the property is actually worth. That is why the art of negotiation is so important. Our Louisiana attorneys will provide strong representation for government agencies in negotiations with property owners to help ensure that the offered compensation reflects the fair worth of the property.

Despite negotiation efforts, these cases will sometimes end up in court. The legal team at Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, has decades of combined legal experience. We are just as comfortable in the courtroom as we are at the negotiating table. If it comes down to a court battle, it is important to have legal counsel with the trial experience to help see your dispute through to its end.
