Our Free Seminars: Because Property Owners Deserve a Fair Playing Field
Are you going to lose your house because of a road widening project? Your front yard to a utility easement? Your business to a new interchange?
No matter your situation, when the government (or a company sanctioned by the government) says they're going to take what's yours - it's scary.
Your investment (your property) is on the line. You need to know what your options are, things that the condemning authority might not tell you.
But we will.
What You Can Expect
My colleague, Jason Campbell, and I have over 20 years of combined experience working on land condemnation cases. We can look at the plans for your property and instantly see some of the issues you may face - issues that the average person (or even the average attorney) might not recognize.
Also, we used to work for the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), so we know how the land condemnation process works in North Carolina and how the government approaches it.
There's a lot of confusion about the eminent domain process and property owners stand to lose a lot, if they aren't informed. So to help level the playing field, we've been giving free seminars across the state of North Carolina.
At our seminars, Jason or I present on the basics of eminent domain, your options as a home or business owner and specific issues you should be aware of based on the type of project that will affect you.
Afterwards, we make ourselves available to talk to property owners, such as yourself, and answer questions any questions you may have about your individual property. If the plans for your property are available, or if you have already received a government offer, we will review these and advise you on your situation - all for free.

Here's Where We've Been So Far in 2014
To give you a better idea of what you can expect at one of our seminars, here's a short recap of some of the places we've been this year:
- On April 25th, we met with over 20 people in New Bern, who will be heavily affected by the US 17 Road Widening in Jones and Onslow Counties. Many of the property owners affected by the US 17 Road Widening will lose their homes and our discussion centered a lot on relocation benefits.
- On March 27th, we met with several property and business owners in Fayetteville who will be affected by the new Rowan Street bridge. Since the bridge will be built overtop of several of their homes and businesses, we talked a lot about how living "in the shadow" of a bridge can affect your property's value.
- February 20th, 44 people came to talk with us in West Jefferson about the issues they may face as a result of the US 221 Widening Project in Watauga and Ashe Counties. The Mountain Television Network actually interviewed us on this project, which you can see here:
- In January, we held two seminars where we met with nearly 50 people who will be affected by the US 1 Widening and Rockingham Bypass in Richmond County and the US 19 East Widening in Yancey and Mitchell Counties.
Since these are both widening projects in fairly rural locations, we talked a lot about control of access and how woven wire fences, ditches and other barriers the NCDOT plans to construct, may affect the resale value of people's properties.
Why do we do it for free?
The eminent domain process is complicated - and can be life-changing. Whether or not you receive $10k, $50k, or $100k more for your home or business could make a significant impact on your financial future.
We wouldn't allow our friends or family to go through this process without professional advice and we don't want you to either.
Plus, once you understand how eminent domain attorneys get paid, we believe you'll understand how looking out for your best interests, helps us too. That's why we're willing to spend our time and resources to let you know exactly what you're up against.
