Miller, Miller & Canby is proud to announce Joseph Suntum has been named the Best Lawyers® 2023 Eminent Domain and Condemnation “Lawyer of the Year” for the Washington metro region. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making it an exceptional distinction.

Mr. Suntum is the leader of the Eminent Domain and Condemnation group at MM&C. His decades of trial experience and in-depth knowledge of real property valuation and the law of eminent domain allow him to protect his clients’ property rights and maximize compensation when their properties are targeted for condemnation. He is a member of the Owners’ Counsel of America for the state of Maryland, a selective membership restricted to only one attorney per state. The firm’s Eminent Domain practice has been honored as a Best Law Firms Metropolitan “Tier 1” practice for the last three years.  His “Lawyer of the Year” accolade is particularly significant, as these lawyers are selected based on high voting averages received from peer review assessments.

Joseph Suntum and the eminent domain attorneys at Miller, Miller & Canby have extensive experience protecting client rights when their property interests are threatened or taken by governmental authorities for public use. Firm attorneys will review any offer made by the State or City without charge to determine whether you may be entitled to greater compensation than has been offered by the State.  If you are interested in a no obligation review of your offer, or if you have any questions about your rights or the condemnation process, please call our office at 301-762-5212 and ask to speak with one of our eminent domain attorneys.  To learn more about our eminent domain and condemnation law practice click here.
