Dismissal of a Neighbor Dispute Restraining Order

Our client hired our office to defend and represent him at a neighbor dispute restraining order hearing. Our client and his neighbor had a long-term dispute over shared walls and construction at their homes that resulted in our client’s neighbor seeking a restraining order against him in court.

Once our client retained us for this matter, an initial review of the documents that our client had in his possession showed that he was not properly served with notice of the hearing. Our office then went to court to investigate and review the court documents. Based on our investigation, we made a tactical decision to appear in court on our client’s behalf and not have him attend the hearing – as he was not properly served.

Our office appeared at the hearing and the other party failed to show. The restraining order was dismissed. This is a great result for our client!
