Corpus Christi Eminent Domain Lawyer
Protect Your Property from Condemnation
Did you know that, in certain circumstances, the government has the power to condemn and force the sale of private property that is needed for public use? This may be referred to as eminent domain or condemnation and may threaten your home, land, or commercial property.If your property threatened by condemnation, I may be able to help. With my experience as a Corpus Christi eminent domain attorney, I can help you understand your rights and options in this important matter. The government is supposed to offer a fair and reasonable payment for the property, but this does not always occur. You have the right to demand fair compensation, and I can help you demonstrate the full and fair value of your property. There may even be ways to avoid condemnation altogether.T

Examples of Arguable Public Uses
Eminent domain may apply if the government has an arguable public use for the property in question. If so, the state or federal government entity, or a private company acting on behalf of the government, may force the sale of the property so it can be used accordingly. This is a serious issue in Texas, with our growing population and the need to create the infrastructure to support it.
The following are examples of arguable public uses for private property:
- Public highways
- Military bases
- Public airports
- Oil, gas, or water pipelines
- Public transportation facilities
- Public parks
- Police stations and courthouses
- Public libraries and schools
- Sport venues
If the government is trying to condemn your property for any purpose, make sure your right to fair compensation is fully protected. I know what to look for in properly valuing your home, land, or business and can effectively negotiate or even consider whether condemnation can be avoided.
