Condemnation & Land Use

The attorneys of Johnston, Allison & Hord's Condemnation & Land Use Practice Group represent property owners whose land has been taken by the government. The members of our group have over sixty years' experience litigating condemnation, eminent domain and business disputes in the courts of North Carolina. We leverage our experience to obtain the highest possible compensation for our clients. Owners are entitled under law to compensation based on the highest and best use of the property. In addition to monetary compensation, we work with land owners to obtain other forms of compensation from the government, including relocation of roadways and installation of landscaping and fencing, as a way to minimize the impact of the taking of remaining property.

Johnston, Allison & Hord is a full service business law firm and has served Charlotte and surrounding areas for over 100 years. Our attorneys in the Condemnation & Land Use Practice Group often work with attorneys in our Construction Law and Real Estate Practice Groups to bring the full strength of the firm's resources to bear for our clients. Additionally, we maintain an extensive network of relationships with appraisers, surveyors, engineers and government officials - all of whom play key roles in the condemnation process.

The members of the Condemnation & Land Use Practice Group offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case, and we accept condemnation cases on both contingency and hourly fee arrangements.
