Neighbor Law

by Attorneys Emily Doskow & Lina Guillen

Resolve neighbor conflicts and get peace of mind.  Don't let neighborly nuisance turn into a nasty lawsuit.  Learn your rights and responsibilities with Neighbor Law, the plain-English guide to the laws behind common neighbor disputes.

Neighbor Law is more than a legal guide-it's a practical book filled with tips on how to solve problems and restore good neighbor relations.

The 8th edition includes updated laws and information on mediation and going to court, as well as guidance on how to handle problems such as drug dealing and blighted property.
