We know it's not just land. It's your farm, it’s your livelihood and it’s your retirement. We have significant experience representing farmers in cases all over the state when the government uses its power to take farmland through eminent domain. Our team understands the tactics of governments at municipal, county, state and federal levels and knows exactly what to expect.
We’ve represented farmers in numerous matters including:
- When a farmer turned to Vorys, after the Ohio Department of Natural Resources offered our client only $220,000. We took the matter to a jury trial and won nearly six times what was originally offered.
- When ODOT constructed a limited-access highway that bisected our clients farm, the jury awarded our client more than $625,000 above the State’s “good faith” offer.
- When Franklin County implemented a road-realignment project that took the corner frontage of our client’s farm, Vorys was able to negotiate a settlement on behalf of our client for more than $800,000 above Franklin County’s initial offer.
If the government is trying to take your farmland, contact us for a free consultation.
