Georgia Eminent Domain And Condemnation Law: What is legal isn't always right.

  • Condemnation is the process of taking private property through the power of eminent domain. Eminent domain is the legal right states, localities and the federal government have to condemn and force the sale of private property. Although an individual's rights are subordinated to the government, the owner is entitled to receive just compensation for his or her property when it's taken by the government.​
  • The attorneys at Power ▪ Jaugstetter will defend your rights as a property owner in eminent domain actions. We work to make things right by maximizing the result most advantageous for our client.

Either way, we will work to maximize the outcome for you to make it right.
  • ​In representing property owners as well as a variety of governmental agencies, we have gained a unique and in-depth perspective on how to litigate eminent domain matters on behalf of both property owners as well as the government. We will use this perspective to benefit you in your eminent domain case.
