At Hirschel Law Firm, P.C., we represent the interests of property owners throughout Long Island caught up in eminent domain condemnation matters, as well as zoning and land use disputes.
The fact is, although you may own property, that doesn't mean that you are free to do whatever or use however you want to it. Also, there are no guarantees against individuals or other entities making a claim to a portion of your property or determining how to use your property. We advise property owners of their rights and the best methods for asserting those rights when faced with zoning and land use disputes, as well as eminent domain matters.
Hire A Lawyer Who Understands Land Use, Zoning And Eminent Domain
When the government exercises its powers of eminent domain over your property, you are entitled to "just compensation" for damages and losses. Although the amount of compensation awarded is based on the current market value of your property, the fact is that in most cases, the government's initial offering will be substantially less than what you likely deserve.
Regardless of whether the government is making partial use of your property, or relieving you of it entirely, it is important to work with an attorney to ensure that you are being treated fairly.
We represent individuals as well as commercial and residential property owners in a variety zoning and eminent domain issues, including:
- Matters of code compliance
- Restrictive use of property
- Zoning that renders a property valueless
- Property line violations
- Regulatory taking
- Eminent domain
Whether the construction of a new road, school, park or other public facility places your property in jeopardy, we will investigate, refer to our knowledge of the intricate codes and statutes, explain your options and arrive prepared with a litigation strategy to pursue the compensation you deserve.
