North Carolina Land Condemnation

“Condemnation” may sound pretty extreme, but don’t lose sight of the fact that you are entitled to fair compensation for your property. And many times you have to fight to define what’s “fair.”

Do you need a North Carolina land condemnation attorney?

You’ve just received a scary letter from the government saying they’ve “condemned” your property and they’re taking the very land you live on. Or you’re a business owner and the government notifies you they’re taking just a piece of your property – the very piece that makes it possible to run your business in the first place.

The good news is that you’re entitled to just compensation for your property. The bad news is that determining exactly what “just” compensation means in any given situation can be tricky. The government, like any other buyer, wants to spend the smallest amount possible to acquire the property.

Draw on our inside knowledge to fight the government

In North Carolina, attorneys with NCDOT experience are few and far between…

We have four.

Stan Abrams, the author of our free guide to eminent domain, worked as an assistant attorney general, where he represented the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) in condemnation litigation throughout the state. That provides him with essential knowledge of the state’s approach to eminent domain takings.

Stan is joined by Jason Campbell, Ken Sack, and Kevin Mahoney, who also have years of experience in how condemnations work from inside the NCDOT. Jason was the primary attorney on the Department’s largest case ever at that point.

With more than 100 years of combined experience, our four formidable advocates know the ins and outs of land condemnation proceedings – and may be able to use that inside experience to your benefit.
