Inverse Condemnation
 
This constitutional law specialty is an under used litigation tool.  A cause of action for Inverse Condemnation arises when a government project damages or effectively takes private property without payment of just compensation.  Often, the fair market value of the property is the measure of damage.
 
Public projects may damage private property in a number of ways.  The most common include flood damage, landslides, land subsidence, and loss of ground support.  We have handled some of the most complex landslide and inverse condemnation cases statewide. No one has broader experience or achieved greater success in this specialized field.
