The attorneys at California Eminent Domain Law Group, APC are California's premier eminent domain lawyers, with extensive experience in all facets of eminent domain law. We have successfully handled hundreds of eminent domain matters throughout the state.

We have the experience, expertise, skill and resolve to obtain maximum compensation for our property and business owner clients whose properties and businesses are being forcibly taken from them by the government.

Our Expertise

We practice exclusively eminent domain law. We are eminent domain specialists. Unlike some firms where eminent domain is only one of several practice areas, our attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of eminent domain cases. We are the only law firm in California to put our name behind our eminent domain specialty.

Our Stature

Our attorneys have been involved in some of the most high profile projects in the state, and have served as guest speakers on the topic of eminent domain in local, statewide, national and even international conferences. Our attorneys authored the "California Eminent Domain Handbook," and have been featured speakers on regional and national news broadcasts on the topic of eminent domain, including CNN Headline News and Fox News Channel. Martindale-Hubbell recognizes California Eminent Domain Law Group, APC as an AV® Rated law firm, the highest rating available in both legal ability and ethics. Our attorneys have both been repeatedly named Southern California Super Lawyers® in the field of eminent domain, a distinction reserved for attorneys rated by their peers as being within the top 5% of attorneys in their field.

Our Breadth of Experience

Our attorneys' breadth of experience is second to none. We have successfully handled eminent domain cases for property owners, business owners and public agencies covering a vast spectrum of properties, ranging from residential and commercial to industrial and vacant land to special use properties. Likewise, we have handled a wide range of businesses including retail stores, service businesses, manufacturing, food processing and high technology businesses, and even such unusual businesses as dance clubs, bowling alleys, golf courses and churches. These properties and businesses have ranged from a few thousand dollars to tens of millions of dollars, and cover the spectrum from sole proprietorships to publicly traded companies. Our broad experience enables us to evaluate each case in an informed way to achieve maximum compensation.

We recognize that your property or business is one of your most important assets, and we treat it and you accordingly.

Our Preparation and Attention To Detail

We recognize and appreciate that every case, every property and every business is different. We spend the time necessary and appropriate to learn the details about our clients' properties and businesses. With a deep understanding of what is special about each property and business, we can achieve maximum compensation.
