Real Estate Disputes and Transactions
Disputes to resolve the boundaries between two neighbors, or the right of way to a body of water can be the most contentious of issues. Likewise, issues that arise in the purchase or sale of a piece of real estate, where everyone wants the deal to close, can be the most delicate to resolve.

“Good fences make good neighbors”. In Robert Frost’s poem “Mending Wall,” two neighbors walk the length of their dividing wall each spring to replace its fallen or unsettled stonework. The author does not understand the purpose of the fence, but with his neighbor’s uttered statement, he feels compelled to continue this yearly ritual with his neighbor. Are fences the same physical manifestation of a dispute as a pair of crossed arms? Or rather, do they provide a healthy boundary between friends and neighbors, defining a well-balanced relationship?
