  • Belork v. Latimar
    We represented a farmer who wanted his neighbor to build half of the fence under the Indiana fence law. The Indiana fence law requires that adjoining landowners, in certain situations, but share in the cost of building a fence, or else the township trustee is to see that the fence is built. The trail court ruled against Mr. Belork and stated that the Indiana Fence Law did not apply. However, we argued the case to the court of appeals and the court of appeals reversed the trial court.

  • Wise v. Hayes
    I represented a homeowner who was defrauded by sellers of a home. Case was dismissed from the trial court, but we argued successfully on appeal and won.
