Eminent Domain and Land Acquisition

Randolph, Boyd, Cherry and Vaughan is one of the leading eminent domain law firms in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Through the years, the firm has represented many condemning authorities, ranging from railroads, utilities and airport authorities to cities, counties, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. In addition, the firm represents owners whose land has been condemned for public use. The firm not only handles individual condemnation cases, but also provides administrative service and legal oversight to condemnors for right of way acquisition projects. This includes assembling and coordinating a right of way acquisition team (appraisers, negotiators and engineers), securing title reports and insurance, and drafting all necessary legal documents and closings.

As an adjunct to its eminent domain practice, the firm also handles real estate litigation such as ad valorem tax assessment challenges, partition suits and easements.

Francis (Sandy) Cherry has been a registered lobbyist in the Commonwealth for over 35 years, and he devotes a substantial amount of time to advocating for clients on state legislation impacting eminent domain and transportation issues.
