“My property is being taken? What are my options?”

Unfortunately, in most cases you can’t stop the government from taking your land under the power of eminent domain. However, the Constitution guarantees your right to “just compensation.” That said, do NOT simply accept the first offer from the government. NCDOT will try to pay as little as possible for your property and you deserve more.

We can help. Our eminent domain team is led by Chris Beacham, a former assistant attorney general for the State of North Carolina who has handled all kinds of eminent domain cases on both sides of the table. Chris knows the property taking process inside and out and can help you fight for maximum compensation for property taken as part of the I-26 improvement project in the Asheville NC area.

“The DOT will try to pay as little as possible for your property, but you deserve just compensation. You deserve justice.”
