Moffitt & Phillips, PLLC is an Arkansas law firm devoted to exclusively representing the interests of landowners in eminent domain litigation or condemnation law. Both the Arkansas and the United States constitutions provide that property owners are entitled to “just compensation” when their property is taken by the government or a governmental designee for public use. The amount of “just compensation” to which you are entitled includes compensation for the actual property that is taken by the government for public use and additionally compensation for any damage to your remaining property as a result of the taking.

Although many landowners have a basic understanding of property valuation, there are specific methods of valuation that must be applied in an eminent domain context to determine “just compensation.” It is nearly impossible to properly evaluate the government’s offer or prepare for condemnation proceeding without the assistance of a knowledgeable condemnation lawyer familiar with the law in your state. Additionally, an eminent domain lawyer can assist you in finding a qualified appraiser familiar with eminent domain takings to value your property and obtaining specific information about the project for which your property is being condemned.
