Eminent Domain

RW&G's eminent domain lawyers represent our clients in all aspects of the condemnation process from the pre-acquisition phase of eminent domain proceedings through trial and appeal.

The law regulating use of the power of eminent domain and related areas of acquisition procedure, relocation, contamination and CEQA compliance involves a complex specialty area in which we have significant experience and expertise.

We have found that many issues arising in eminent domain court proceedings are directly related to problems that were not fully addressed in the pre-acquisition stages.

For that reason, we have developed a team approach to handling the various phases of eminent domain proceedings. This approach involves working closely with staff to address all aspects of the acquisition and condemnation process, from choosing an appraiser and preparing staff reports for hearings on Resolutions of Necessity, to resolving relocation benefit claims and dealing with contamination and CEQA issues.
