Helping You Protect Your Property From Condemnation And Eminent Domain

Eminent domain, also referred to as condemnation, is the legal process by which a government entity, and sometimes a private company, is allowed to acquire property for development. Sometimes eminent domain involves displacing the property owner from their home or business in order to achieve the goals of the acquiring entity.

At the Rolla-based law office of Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield, we represent individuals whose property is acquired through the eminent domain process. You have rights. We will fight to ensure those rights are respected.

When Can The Government Take Your Property?

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) allows local governments to take private property from an individual for private development. However, the Missouri Supreme Court handed down a ruling limiting the use of eminent domain to displace homeowners to further private development. If a private company is forcing you out of your home, you need an eminent domain attorney right away. We will fight relentlessly to help you stay in your home.

The city, county, and state have the authority to acquire private land from property owners when it is deemed to be in the best interest of the public. However, even when the government has a legitimate purpose in mind when taking your property, you are still entitled to fair compensation. Our lawyers have litigated numerous cases to ensure property owners get fair compensation in condemnation and eminent domain cases. You can count on us to fight diligently on your behalf.
