Powerful Eminent Domain Attorneys, Always on Your Side

Some Georgia attorneys work in eminent domain part-time. Others work both sides of eminent domain cases.

We only work in eminent domain, and we’re always on your side. And it shows.

On average, our clients get 3x the initial offer for their properties.1

Is my property worth 3x more?

Our history & mission

Our firm was founded by several attorneys who worked for a state Department of Transportation, handling some of its largest and most important cases.

They left because they believed property owners weren’t always treated fairly in these negotiations, and we’ve never forgotten our roots. We understand most people don’t want their property taken. We’ve seen firsthand what happens when people are left to fend for themselves.

Our mission is to help even the playing field and make sure you’re treated with the dignity and respect you deserve along the way.

What you get with us

Choosing the right attorney for your eminent domain case is an important decision.

Choose wrong, and you could leave thousands of dollars – maybe hundreds of thousands – on the bargaining table. Or accidentally give up important property rights.

But at the end of the day, the choice is yours. You won’t get any high-pressure sales from us. We let our reputation do the talking.

Let's talk

Expert attorneys

Our lead attorneys are recognized in the field of eminent domain. They teach other attorneys how to handle eminent domain cases and are often asked by the media to comment as experts.

Impressive resources

We operate under two large, highly-successful parent firms – the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin and Monge & Associates – meaning we have the resources available to push for maximum value.

Other side experience

We believe our experience working for a state DOT gives us an edge – we know its strategies, we know what’s going on under the surface, and we’ll leverage this on your case.

Established contacts

We have relationships with engineers, land planners, and other experts who we can call on as needed to help build evidence for each type of case.

No win, no fee.2

To say our fee structure is a “win-win” is mild, but we make special promises because we’re confident in our people.

First, we help you collect the government’s initial offer without closing negotiations, so you get all the money you would have without us.

Then we front the costs to build your case. We may hire experts or put in long hours. You still pay nothing. And you never will if we don’t get more.

Only after we get the government to agree to pay you more do we take a cut.

Ferondo Moore
He’d already doubled the offer, but something told him to call…

Ferondo Moore was offered $38,000 for a utility easement that the DOT claimed “wouldn’t affect” his business. No stranger to real estate deals, Ferondo was able to convince the DOT to nearly double that offer. Even so, a friend suggested he contact us.

If Ferondo had not listened to his friend’s advice, he would not have realized the life-changing extent of that easement’s damages to his business until it was too late. And he would have left an additional $337,000 on the table — 10x more.1

Former GA Eminent Domain Law Firm client Glenn.
When the stakes were sky high, Glenn turned to us. And we delivered.

Semi-retired, Glenn was counting on his businesses in NC to help generate income — but the DOT there had other plans. They told Glenn they were taking huge pieces of his land; worse, they offered him much less than he knew it was worth. It was going to take some serious research to get the DOT to budge.

We were up to the task. This was Glenn’s first time going through this, but we had “other side” experience from working for a state DOT. We knew how to challenge their appraisal, counter with our own expert analysis, and get Glenn over 300% more in just compensation.1,3

Former GA Eminent Domain Law Firm client Tony.
You don’t need to know the law to recognize a lowball offer…

When Tony Dickens got his offer from the NCDOT, he was sure it was some kind of mistake. Less than $2,000? After confirming the offer was accurate, Tony refused to give in. He called and asked us to fight for everything he was entitled to under the law.

Good thing he did. Through hard work, meticulous research, and forceful negotiation, we got the government to up his offer to $43,150 — an increase of more than 2,000%.1 Tony was very happy with the outcome and the personal care he received along the way.3

Get a free case
evaluation today.

There are only a handful of attorneys in GA who practice eminent domain exclusively. And even fewer with DOT experience. That’s why it’s always worth it to get a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
