Representative Cases
A couple owned 10 acres near Sisters, Oregon. Their neighbor sold their property, and a new neighbor from Portland moved in and soon claimed that he owned one-half of our clients' horse pasture. The neighbor filed suit for the property, claiming that because he and the previous owner had used the pasture for over 10 years, he has the right to adversely claim it as his own.

At trial, the neighbor and his witnesses testified first. When they were done, to help keep costs down and to be aggressive, rather than put our client and witnesses on, we filed a motion for directed verdict, argued to the court that the opponent had not proved his case, and that we should win this case even without putting on our case. The judge looked at the opponent's counsel and "strongly suggested" that he settle this case. Both parties took an immediate recess and the case was settled with the opponent paying a generous sum to our client to purchase the pasture.
