Adverse Possession

Little & Boylan, PLLC was successful again in an adverse possession case. Adverse possession, a doctrine that allows a person to claim ownership of land under certain conditions, is a challenging area of law that requires a deep understanding of both statutory requirements and judicial precedents. Our client was awarded a new boundary line to her property based on her claim of ownership by adverse possession.

The case centered on a disputed piece of land that our client had been using for over 15 years. The adjacent property threated to remove our client’s fence and trees and otherwise claimed ownership of the disputed property. Little & Boylan presented evidence, including historical records, photographs, and witness statements, to demonstrate that our client met all the requirements for adverse possession under Michigan law.

Our legal strategy involved not only proving our client's continuous and exclusive use of the land but also demonstrating the public and notorious nature of this use, all of which are critical elements of adverse possession. Through diligent preparation and compelling argumentation, we were able to convince the court of our client's rightful claim to the property.

This case highlights the importance of understanding one's rights and the value of experienced legal representation in protecting those rights. At Little & Boylan, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of service and representation in all matters of property law.
