Sullivan, Workman & Dee, LLP, is one of the leading eminent domain law firms in California. Eminent domain (or condemnation) is the process through which private property is acquired for public use. The condemning agencies retain experienced eminent domain professionals, and you should too.

  • We will handle all phases of your case, from the first time you are contacted by the Agency, through settlement or to trial.
  • We will counsel you in how to respond to the Agency’s offers and tactics.
  • We will recommend strong, experienced expert consultants to help you maximize your recovery.

The United States and California Constitutions guarantee just compensation when private property and businesses are taken or damaged by government action. You may be entitled to recover compensation for:

  • the value of the land taken;
  • the loss in value to the remainder of your land (severance damages) if only part of it is taken;
  • the value of most fixtures, equipment and improvements installed on the land taken;
  • the value of any lease interests taken;
  • loss of value or damage to your business caused by the taking;
  • relocation benefits; or
  • interest, attorneys’ fees, other litigation expenses and court costs.

We often represent our eminent domain clients on a contingency fee basis.

This means that, while you may be responsible for payment of court costs and the costs of appraisers and other experts, you don’t pay attorney’s fees unless we win.

Contingency fees, and responsibility for payment of court costs and expert costs, are negotiable and are not set by law.
