Minnesota Real Estate Attorneys: Eminent Domain and Condemnation
The attorneys at Jensen Sondrall Persellin & Woods, P.A. are experienced in every aspect of eminent domain proceedings, including settlement negotiations and trials. If a governmental entity chooses to take private property in the public interest, this can have an enormous impact on a property owner's financial interests. Thus, it is essential that you have an experienced eminent domain attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.
Eminent domain can fall under several different areas, including environmental laws; zoning laws; the construction of airports, roads and highways; telecommunications, public and private utilities; etc. It is essential that you have an experienced land use attorney to help you navigate through the complex processes associated with eminent domain and condemnation. Our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of this area of law and we strive to obtain the maximum reimbursement expenses for our clients in all cases.
The power of eminent domain occurs not only in the common scenario where the state wants you to relocate so that they can build a highway through your property: a "taking" can occur by simply enacting a statute or ordinance that interferes with the use of your property. Our Minnesota eminent domain attorneys protect clients from the unlawful taking of their property by working to ensure that a landowner's rights are fully protected and that the landowner receives just compensation. If a settlement is not reached and your case does proceed to trial, it is crucial that you have attorneys with extensive trial and appellate experience, such as that offered by the seasoned litigators in our firm.

We offer exceptional legal services and provide individualized attention to our clients, whether you are a landowner or a business owner, and we will be with you throughout the entire condemnation process.
