What to Bring to Your Meeting With a Land Condemnation Attorney

When you meet with an attorney to review your land condemnation case, it’s important to be prepared and know what to bring. You should bring any and all documentation related to the ownership, maintenance, and value of your commercial property, farm, business, church, or home. Not only will this help provide your attorney with a more informed preliminary opinion about your claim, but it will also help the attorneys and paralegals assigned to your case to work more quickly and efficiently.
