Experienced Trial Counsel for Condemnation/Eminent Domain Throughout New York State

If a municipality has notified you that they are going to acquire your property via condemnation, you should immediately consult with experienced counsel. While the municipality must provide "just compensation," the amount of offered compensation may not be sufficient.

Fortunately, pursuant to state law, property owners have the right to contest the offered compensation. Our firm is experienced at the pretrial, trial and appellate levels of review in condemnation matters. At the law firm of Brandt, Steinberg, Lewis & Blond LLP, we have represented condemned properties of many sizes and descriptions. We can help you assert your rights under New York state law.

Helping You Through All Eminent Domain and Condemnation Issues

New York law dictates that government entities have the authority to "take" real estate that is held privately in exchange for "just compensation." When the compensation offered by the municipality differs significantly from an eventual court award, it is also possible to obtain legal fees from the condemning authority.

Our firm can help you navigate the condemnation process, including cases of "partial takings," and obtain the compensation you deserve for your property. We work with appraisers and other valuation experts to obtain the most favorable results possible.
