Condemnation & Land Use Litigation Law Firm
In the United States eminent domain is the compulsory (required by law) purchase and acquisition of a citizen's private property. Eminent domain is an action by the state to seize the citizen's right to their property with due monetary compensation; however, it is accomplished without the person's consent. Real estate property is most commonly taken for the purpose of government use; for example, for public utilities, or for highway or railroad construction.

The term "condemnation" describes the formal action of exercising the power of eminent domain in order to transfer title to a property from the private owner to the government. Condemnation through eminent domain refers to when the government is taking ownership of someone's property, or some degree of interest in it.
Unfortunately, there have been many instances where the government took the private property of a citizen, while paying far below what the property was actually worth. When a lawyer gets involved, they can fight the government for the amount of money that reflects the true market value of your property so you won't be taken advantage of.
