Easement disputes? As an experienced Montana easement attorney and top-rated trial lawyer, I can help

Easement disputes are among the most common, and heated, disputes that I see.

• As a landowner, you expect reasonable access to your property.

• As a landowner, you also expect to enjoy your property without intrusion or interference by other parties.

In Montana, many parcels of private property are situated away from public roads and to reach them, you must cross property that belongs to someone else. And that is how many conflicts arise. If you have an easement dispute, I have experience and skill that can help.
