Land disputes are increasingly involving public rather than private interests. Wetland access is taking the place of estate boundaries, and the expert witness-whether a surveyor, appraiser, engineer, or biologist-is often called upon to help a court reach a decision. This book provides these witnesses with all of the crucial information they need to understand the legal process of land disputes, from the filing of a complaint to its resolution.
