We all want to live in peace and quiet. Hopefully our relationships with our neighbors are great, including neighborhood BBQS, 4th of July events, and friendship. Unfortunately, not every neighbor is ideal.
I recently settled a case involving a neighbor who cut own my client's large, well tended tree without permission. In California, a person can be liable for up to 3 times the value of the tree, plus incidental costs (maintenance, stump removal, transportation, etc.) in certain circumstances. After I took on the case, we hired experts, surveyed the property, negotiated the matter, and received a settlement that my client felt was more than acceptable.
It takes hard work, strategy, patience, and a game plan to resolve these matters, but the peace of mind that comes with a successful resolution are worth it in the end. If you are having issues with a neighbor, contact me. I am happy to talk through the issues and determine the best resolution. Property disputes can be stressful, let me help relieve some of that stress and help you move on with your life.
