The federal government has a constitutional right to take your private land for public use. Sometimes the government takes away land to widen a highway, create a recreational trail, or to build a building. When this happens, landowners are protected by the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. There’s a section of the Fifth Amendment known as the “Just Compensation Clause” and it requires the federal government to pay landowners fair market value for any property taken.
The Flint Law Firm will litigate against the federal government in the United States Court of Federal Claims on behalf of commercial and residential property owners who have had their property taken by the federal government to recover the just compensation to which they are entitled.
