I need to hire an attorney concerning a property line dispute. Anyone know of a good attorney that they would recommend? I am not from this area and not familiar with any around here. Thanks :)

From family experience; I recommend a land survey and then putting up a fence (removing the old fence if necessary). Let them spend the money on lawyers and court cost. Once the fence is in place and survey in hand, the court won't make you take it down.... But if you don't have these things in place, best of luck, you will need it.

I agree, but DON'T hire Carmack to do your survey. He's an idiot, and over charges! Try West Plains, or Marshfield. Get a survey from a COMPETENT surveyor.

The law firm of Engelbrecht & Williams in West Plains is great. Ask for Williams.

I guessing your not a welfare bum if you have property to dispute. If you were a welfare bum, I'd recommend Larry Tyrrell. He's famous for representing the supposed repressed people of Mountain Grove. Oh, yeah, if your on SSI you can still work it off on his dairy farm. Right, Ricky Price?

Sounds like property disputes are common around here. Check out "Police tape at church" posting. Sounds like a property dispute!

I don't care for the pointer law firm, but I do think when it comes to property disputes they know what they're doing and can advise you properly. I think they may still have an office in MG. Definately one in Ava and one in Gainesville. May be pricey.

Depending on who you're up against, attorneys are like drug dealers, they make deals between each other. They may give on one case to 'make it' on another. Get someone who is not in on the local 'dealing'.

Property dispute look at paying between $50K - 60K in attorney fees.

Very good advice,'Be Careful'! While I don't know that can be proved, I'd guess something like that. I think there may be 1 or 2 that won't 'play ball' with the others. I personally can't prove or disprove this theory.

Very sad...someone comes here looking for some advice and you have to turn it into a gossiping personal attack on someone. How sad your life must be.

Yep, you got it, that's K = THOUSANDS of dollars. That's the national average. Especially out here in the sticks lines are old, fences get moved. Many times It usually ends up with surveyor's opinion. These cases can go on for years.

In town, plats are usually better recorded and more recent, but if you've got someone going for "Adverse Possession", well,'Brace yourself Effy'. LOL

"Adverse Possession" should be obolished, but it's too lucrative for attorneys. It's usually whoever runs out of money first looses.

Good Luck!

That's Ron Dodd for you- he gets on every Topix and turns it into an attack on a certain clan in town. But then he probably does have a sad life. Have you seen his wife? lmfao! She looks like a she-man truck driver type that probably turned into a lesbian cause she wasn't satisfied with her husband's equipment or operation of said equip!

Well, from what I hear, stay away from Scott Stinson, unless you need to work out his attorney fees personally with him thru S'favors. Oh that is so gross!! Tell me thats not true because 90% of Mtn Grove residents needing attorney is trashy scanks.

"Esquire" or "Esq." world originated England, a form of address showing that someone is an attorney. WOW!
