Experienced Attorneys on Your Side Backed by 170 Years of Collective Legal Experience

Raleigh Eminent Domain Lawyers

Asserting Property Rights Across North Carolina

At Edwards Kirby, our property rights group, led by Charles “Chuck” Lollar, Sr., represents private property owners in eminent domain and property rights litigation. Our goal is to make property owners whole through the eminent domain process, recovering all compensation constitutionally guaranteed. We have a passion for private property rights and never represent condemning agencies or the government, thereby avoiding any conflicts that could arise.

The eminent domain process is complex, and battling the state or federal government can be daunting. The government will have a team of attorneys on its side. Property owners should have the same legal protection. Edwards Kirby helps ensure property owners understand the legal process, their rights under eminent domain law, and that they must assert those rights to obtain fair compensation. With experience, knowledge, and skill, our firm is equipped to challenge the government on your behalf to obtain maximum compensation for any damages resulting from an eminent domain taking.
