Adverse Possession


Generally speaking, adverse possession is a legal doctrine that allows a person to acquire legal ownership of property by proving possession for a certain period of time.  Adverse possession is a statutory doctrine and if the statutory requirements are met, title passes as though there had been a conveyance through the traditional methods of deed transfer.


Our attorneys assist clients with defending or prosecuting adverse possession claims.  If you have questions about a potential adverse possession claim, contact one of our attorneys today.




The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on an advertisement. Before you decide, ask us to send you free

written information about our qualifications and experience. The above is not legal advice. Legal advice can only come from a qualified attorney

who is familiar with all the relevant facts and circumstances of a particular case and the applicable law.
