Eminent domain is the power of the government to take private property for public use, in return for just compensation. What exactly constitutes public use and what amount of compensation is just are two of the major issues in any attempted exercise of eminent domain. Remo A. Caputo Attorney at Law understands the delicate balance of interests at play in any exercise of eminent domain. My experience as a former Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey handling condemnation matters for the New Jersey Department of Transportation and as a lead condemnation commissioner, hearing condemnation matters, gives me a high-level view of the process. This enables me to advocate strongly for my client, while appreciating other perspectives and recognizing opportunities to reach negotiated solutions. However, when litigation is necessary to protect my client’s rights, I am confident in my ability to deliver a compelling argument to the court.
