Expropriation Law

Expropriation law is a fancy word for the government or a private company trying to take your land against your will.  The Louisiana Legislature has enacted statutes to help you defend your property rights as a citizen.  Even if the expropriator can prove that he has a genuine public purpose, you are still entitled to just compensation.  In other words, you don't have to subsidize the private gain of large companies.  If you are approached by right-of-way agents who threaten you with expropriation if you don't sign their papers, it is critical that you understand and safeguard your rights before suit is filed against you.
