Nuisance and Trespass Lawyers | Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina
Nuisance and trespass are similar, but not the same.
Both terms are used to describe interference with property. Trespass is the intentional, unauthorized and physical invasion of property. Nuisance is interference that does not involve a physical invasion. Examples include:
- Trash-covered premises
- Dangerous structures
- Junk vehicles
- Attractive (especially to children) nuisances
- Obstructions to public right-of-way
- Illegal dumping
- Dumping in waterways
Nuisance lawsuits can be either private or public. Increasingly, claims of public nuisance are being brought in matters involving environmental disputes — for instance, bad odor emanating from a factory hog farm, or pollution to ground water caused by a chicken rendering plant.

Often, when people come to our law firm for help it is after they have gone to government officials — at the county, state or federal level — and struck out. They are in disbelief that their elected officials were unable or unwilling to help them.
We understand that the issues involved in these disputes go beyond dollars and cents, especially when property that has been in a family for generations is being threatened by the misdeeds of others.
