Eminent Domain

smallimage_eminentNorris & St. Clair has represented the Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner of Virginia (VDOT) since 1999. Through this representation, Norris & St. Clair has gained significant insight and experience for the litigation of condemnation cases throughout the Tidewater, Virginia area. This experience includes both partial and complete takings from road widening projects, public utility easements, sound walls, construction easements and inverse condemnation. Mr. Norris has been the lead attorney for the Norris & St. Clair eminent domain practice and has developed an extensive network of contacts with area appraisers, civil engineers, traffic engineers, land use planners, commercial real estate brokers, residential real estate agents, environmental consultants and other experts in fields which can help maximize or minimize (depending on the client’s point of view) the impact from a condemnation.
