Eminent Domain & Property Acquisition

Eminent Domain and Condemnation Representation

Has Sound Transit or another governmental entity sent you a letter advising that it intends to take an interest in you or your business’ property for a public project, and offered to pay you thousands of dollars less than what you believe it may be worth?

Crane Dunham PLLC represents the owners of property that are going through what is known as eminent domain or condemnation by Sound Transit or other jurisdictions for light rail, pedestrian or bike paths or other future developments of public projects. We assemble a team of experts, such as appraisers and economists, to present the strongest analysis and evidence that ensures you receive the highest possible compensation for your land as required under the U.S. and Washington State Constitutions. Often, the fees for lawyers, appraisers and other professionals are paid, in part or entirely, by the condemning agency.
