Simply put, eminent domain allows the government to acquire private property for the benefit of the public. When this happens, property owners often feel helpless and at the government’s mercy. The process seems to benefit the government while leaving the property owner at a severe disadvantage.

There is often considerable debate and frustration when coming to an agreement on property values. This is why you need one of the Augusta, GA eminent domain lawyers at Nicholson Revell on your side.
