What does it cost to hire a Texas eminent domain attorney?

Most eminent domain attorneys work on a "contingency fee" basis where they only get paid if they settle or win your case for more than the government's initial "bona fide offer". This means they get paid a percentage (typically one-third) of what they can recover for your over and above the government's first offer. A contingency fee means your lawyer is confident in their ability to obtain results for you.
