A panicked 911 call out of Washington state this month highlights the importance of seeking legal representation in property disputes before they get out of hand. As many residents here in Michigan may remember, the call to 911 dispatchers came just days ago from a man who explained that his neighbor was demolishing his home with a bulldozer. In a matter of minutes, the 51-year-old man in the bulldozer had demolished four of his neighbors' homes and even destroyed one neighbor's truck.
According to the man's neighbors, his aggressive rampage was likely fueled by a long-standing property dispute between him and his other neighbors. The residents had differing opinions regarding property lines; a dispute that finally boiled over from words into physical retaliation.
