What to Bring to Your Attorney

When you meet with an attorney to review your land condemnation or eminent domain case, it’s important to bring any and all documentation related to the ownership, maintenance, and value of your home, farm, business, or church. Not only will this help provide your attorney with a more informed preliminary opinion about your claim, it can also help our attorneys and paralegals assigned to your case work more quickly.
