Homeowners Association Litigation

Arnold & Bailey attorneys have vast experience litigating issues related to homeowners association covenants and restrictions. Our attorneys represent numerous homeowners associations in Jefferson, Berkeley and Hampshire County, but also routinely represent individual homeowners in disputes with their homeowners association. Our attorneys have successfully argued homeowners association cases involving the interpretation of covenants and restrictions before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals and circuit courts in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.

Eminent Domain

Did you know the government, which includes many government agencies, has the legal right to take your land so long as they claim that the government intends to use it for a "public purpose?" This extraordinary governmental power is called the rule of eminent domain. Too often this power is abused by government officials through the improper seizure of land or by not fairly compensating land owners who have lost their property to a government taking. Our attorneys have litigated many eminent domain cases and are not afraid to confront corrupt and abusive use of eminent domain. Arnold & Bailey will fight to protect your property rights against government agents who improperly assert the power of eminent domain no matter what branch of government is flexing its power of eminent domain.
