Neal & Harwell attorneys have represented public government entities in many eminent domain matters throughout the State of Tennessee. Property can be taken for “public use” for a variety of reasons including highway, airport, sewage, and pipeline projects. The statutes governing this process are complex. Our team guides our clients through the entire process to ensure quick access to the property needed for public projects and that a fair and accurate amount of just compensation is assessed for the taking.
Neal & Harwell attorneys have successfully and quickly obtained possession for public utilities in dozens of condemnations and are skilled at resolving the amount of just compensation outside of the courtroom. As always, however, Neal & Harwell attorneys stand ready to take these matters to trial whenever necessary to protect our clients’ interests
