Advocating For Raleigh Landowners Facing Eminent Domain

There are a host of issues that can hinder a property owner's right to the enjoyment of his or her land or property. Eminent domain is one way.

Eminent Domain Attorneys











Under both the United States and North Carolina constitutions, a governmental or other authorized state entity has the authority to take private property as long as it is for public use.

Individuals facing such actions should always consult with an attorney knowledgeable in this area of law because, when a condemnation action commences, there are complex procedures involved. Land planning, zoning, engineering, storm water management, soil and environmental conditions, and real estate valuation are all part of the process.

At Nicholls & Crampton, P.A., we have widespread understanding of this intricate area of law and utilize such knowledge to make sure landowners' rights are protected and that they receive fair compensation for their land.
