Our contingency fee guarantee

We’ll get you a better offer from the government or you pay nothing. Guaranteed.

You can afford an eminent domain attorney

It can be both intimidating and expensive to fight the government alone on the loss of your land or home through eminent domain. But we have a solution to help you afford quality legal representation to fight for the full compensation that you may deserve.

At the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we don’t get you any additional compensation over what the government offered you for your property, we don’t recover an attorney’s fee. We only charge a fee based on what we are able to obtain above what the government initially offered you.

What are our eminent domain attorney’s fees?

This is the fee you pay your NC Eminent Domain Law Firm attorney if and only if he can get you an increased offer for your property. The fee only applies to the difference between the original government offer and any increase your attorney negotiates for you. For example:

As you can see in the example, you get to keep the government’s first offer (all of it — minus any mortgages or liens on the property). Then, we negotiate with the government for more. If we’re successful, we take a percentage of that extra amount. If we’re not, you don’t pay any attorney’s fee.

Eminent domain attorney’s fees: Frequently asked questions

Many people are interested in hiring an eminent domain attorney when they first get word that the government is taking their land. A huge concern that (unnecessarily) prevents some property owners from hiring an attorney to advocate for them is the belief that an attorney is unaffordable. Here’s why that’s not true at the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm.

What if I don’t make more than what the government offered?

If we don’t get you more than the government’s offer, we will cover all costs associated with your case. Remember, our fees never come out of the government’s initial deposit. That means if there is no increase, you pay us nothing. On average, our firm has increased the compensation our clients receive by more than 197%1 over the NCDOT’s original offer.

How does the NC Eminent Domain Law Firm try to get you more for your property?

Your property is your investment – and it deserves to be treated as such, even when you’re forced to sell it to the government. If you want to try to make the most on your investment, an attorney is a smart choice. We are only paid a percentage of anything extra you gain, so it’s in both of our best interests to try and get you as much as possible over and above the government’s offer.

Our experienced eminent domain attorneys are very aware of the types of issues that may make your property more valuable and how to try to prove this value. In general, we’ll develop evidence to try and use as leverage when negotiating with the government. Oftentimes, we do this by hiring experts, such as appraisers, civil engineers, surveyors, and others as necessary.

Sound expensive? Fortunately, we take on the financial risk so our clients can fight for maximum compensation with no upfront costs or hourly fees.

There are only a handful of attorneys in NC who practice eminent domain exclusively, and even fewer with NCDOT experience. We have several. That’s why its worth getting in touch with us for a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
