How Do Eminent Domain Attorneys Get Paid?

In Florida, the offer that is first given to a property owner at the time that they have an attorney is considered to be the first offer, and then any additional money that is obtained for the property owner over and above that first offer amount is called the benefit. The property owner gets to keep 100% of the initial offer for property takings, and they get to keep 100% of the benefit, but that benefit, that extra amount of money obtained, you multiply it generally by 33%. That percentage can go down for higher benefits, and that figure that comes out of that 33% times the benefit is how the fee is calculated for an attorney fee.
