Adverse possession is an often most misunderstood subject by landowners.  Having met the statutory requirements for a claim does not convey title.  This presentation will discuss Adverse Possession historically and how it is applied today.

Eminent Domain is an often-misunderstood term that can strike fear into the hearts of landowners.  This presentation will cover who has the ability to use eminent domain and how landowners may challenge and are compensated for the taking.

This presentation will address the similarities and differences between right of ways, negative and positive easements, and leases that may act as right of ways or easements.   The creation of easements both explicit and implied will be discussed.
