Adverse possession occurs when a trespasser gains legal ownership of someone else’s property. That can happen in several ways under the law. The trespasser may merely occupy the land, such as a building belonging to a trespasser that has been on his neighbor’s property for a long time, by mistake, or other circumstances also can become adverse possession.
No matter how adverse possession occurs, it is in your best interest to consult a Muscle Shoals lawyer who has handled adverse possession cases. The lawyer can assess the circumstances of the adverse possession to determine under the law if you have a case.
No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.
The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.
The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
