  • Land Boundaries: property boundaries are created by the original surveyor and can never be changed. Dr. Nettleman has lead dozens of original surveys and re-surveys.
  • Property Title: Title – otherwise known as the written record – often contains conflicts and ambiguities. Tony is an expert at analyzing and decoding title.
  • Easements and Rights-of-Way: non-possessory rights in land including easements, rights-of-way and profits always involve two parcels or parties and these entities often dispute the scope of the rights.
  • Water and Riparian: littoral and riparian boundary and title disputes are often some of the most complicated because of the difficulty in measuring and locating features. Let Dr. Nettleman put his dissertation to work for you.
  • Negligence: land surveyors are held to a higher standard of duty because they are often considered professionals by courts. Dr. Nettleman has testified on behalf of surveyors and property owners to determine duty and breach involving engineers and surveyors.
  • Fees: although the trial has concluded, the fee disputes are often just beginning. Dr. Nettleman has testified in both attorney and surveyor fee disputes.
