My name is Raymer Maguire, I am a 30 year practitioner in the area of eminent domain, and I represent property owners and businesses. What are the pros and cons of hiring an eminent domain attorney? There are no cons that I know of. One of the pros is that you’ll get more money. Number two, you will get protection with regards to the access that you end up with. Number three, you’ll get protection with regards to the drainage that you end up with. And number four, you will not have to deal nearly as much with the Right-of-Way agents and the judicial process by having an attorney help you.
