Can I assume that the government will treat me fairly under the eminent domain laws?
There are various laws under the State of Florida that are designed to assure the fair treatment of a property owner in an eminent domain lawsuit. One of these laws is that you have the right to an attorney of your choice, and that the government has to pay statutory fees for that attorney. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that the government interests and objectives in acquiring your lawsuit and paying for as little as they can for it is going to be different from your interests in selling your property that they’re taking, so it’s always a good idea to try to be on equal footing with the government and have an attorney and experts in place, so that you can develop your case and make sure that your rights are protected.
