Eminent Domain Example Case

Ivan Katzer
Tree Expert

An upscale office park had been developed in an area surrounded by numerous trees and extensive landscaping. The trees provided a visual and acoustic barrier from the surrounding interstate highway and created an atmosphere of an office in the woods. Using the authority of eminent domain, the State Department of Transportation took away significant areas of the surrounding woods for highway construction. I was able to make an assessment of loss for use in negotiations for compensation.
