Case Conclusion Date: February 14, 2008
Practice Area: Litigation
Outcome: Obtained summary judgement in my client's favor
Description: My client owns a parking business in Seatac. Because of the contours of the land, my client and the neighbor built a fence that did not sit upon the property line. After 2 decades, the neighbor refused my to allow my client access to the strip of my client's land that, because of the fenceline, seemed to be part of the neighbor's land. We sued to eject the neighbor from the strip and to quiet my client's title to the strip. We suceeded on summary judgment via a combination of the facts of the case and some quirks of Washington law. After we obtained our order granting summary judgment, the parties mediated the dispute, and my client obtained a very favorable outcome.
