Los Angeles Neighbor Dispute Information

Types of Neighbor Disputes

Disputes between neighbors, such as noise levels, misbehaving pets or children, old cars in the front yard, and property lines, are common. Police are sometimes summoned and complaints are made to homeowner associations or to the encroaching neighbor. Even simple disputes can escalate into something serious.

Neighbor Disputes Legal Recourse

When a dispute with a neighbor occurs, diplomacy is the best course of action, but if that fails you should contact a Los Angeles lawyer experienced in resolving neighbor disputes. If no law is broken, the lawyer can draft a letter or other communication to try and correct the situation. If that doesn't work, the lawyer may petition the court for a restraining order or injunction to stop the neighbor's conduct.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

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.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
