NC Eminent Domain Lawyers • Land Condemnation Attorneys
Attorneys Emmett Boney Haywood, Steven C. Newton II, and John B. Ward represent individuals and businesses whose real property is taken by the government. “Eminent domain” is the power of the government to take private property for a public use. It is one of the greatest powers our government has. When the government takes property by eminent domain, it must follow certain procedures and pay just compensation. Our goal is to ensure that you are treated fairly and paid the compensation you deserve.
Condemnation cases can be complex and time-consuming. Landowners who represent themselves often leave money on the table. If the government is taking your land, you need attorneys who will fight for you every step of the way. Emmett, Steven, and John care about every client. They work tirelessly to defend their clients’ rights and help them get the compensation they deserve. They also strive to obtain favorable design changes, when possible, to improve conditions for property owners.
The Land Law Team at Nicholls & Crampton has over forty years of combined land condemnation experience. Before devoting her practice entirely to landowner representation, Emmett Haywood cut her teeth representing the government in condemnation cases. She has been representing landowners exclusively since 2000. Emmett’s experience with the NCDOT gives her insight into the condemnation process that few lawyers have. She knows how the system works, and she and her team will fight hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
Emmett, Steven, and John have a hands-on, client-centered, and team-oriented approach. They work together on every case, so their clients enjoy the full breadth of experience of the practice group. No two cases are alike, and the Land Law Team treats each case and client with the care and respect it deserves. They are committed to helping every client receive just compensation and fair treatment, and they strive to meet the individual needs of all their clients.
