WELCOME TO LUCAS & COMPANY
Are you a landowner or an attorney representing a landowner in a property boundary dispute or other real property issue? Possibly a boundary dispute that you feel, rightly of wrongly, was started as a result of as new survey of your property or of the property of a neighbor? Do you feel like your property rights (or the rights of your client), are being abused or taken away? You are not alone. After 40 years in the land surveying business and 15 years as an attorney, I have seen way too many of these types of situations. Order can be restored but you need help doing that. You need someone who understands the issues and why these situations happen. Someone who can cut through the nonsense and surveyor jargon, and identify the reality of the situation. That’s where we come in. Check out our services and give us a call if you need help with a real property or negligence issue. We can help.
