Eminent Domain Services | DeWitt LLP Law Firm

DeWitt stands as a formidable choice for clients seeking legal representation in eminent domain matters, offering a robust team of attorneys and support staff with extensive expertise in guiding clients through every facet of the condemnation process. From the initial notice of governmental taking to the jurisdictional offer and, if necessary, subsequent litigation and appeals, our team ensures comprehensive assistance.

Our eminent domain team at DeWitt possesses not only a profound understanding of Wisconsin condemnation law but also an in-depth knowledge of diverse strategies available to property owners. This knowledge is instrumental in maximizing the award of just compensation. Moreover, we have cultivated strong relationships with industry experts, including property appraisers, well-known for their extensive experience in handling property valuation issues on behalf of both property owners and governmental authorities.

What sets DeWitt apart is our proven track record of success in eminent domain matters. A notable example involves securing a multi-million dollar just compensation verdict for a property owner in a jury trial concerning the American Transmission Company's (ATC) Badger-Coulee transmission line project. This victory, exceeding 115% of the jurisdictional offer, compelled ATC to reimburse the property owner for all attorneys' fees and expenses incurred in the litigation.

In addition to our aptitude in eminent domain matters involving electrical and other utilities, DeWitt has a commendable record of success representing property owners in condemnation cases involving the Department of Transportation and other governmental entities. We also extend our legal counsel to condemning authorities, ensuring a comprehensive and adept approach to eminent domain issues. Clients can trust DeWitt for unwavering support and a history of successful outcomes in navigating the complexities of eminent domain law.
