Derek Lick and Kelly Ovitt Puc Prevail at the New Hampshire Supreme Court
The attorney team of Kelly Ovitt Puc and Derek Lick prevailed at trial in the Merrimack County Superior Court on behalf of a husband and wife who were defending their lakefront property rights from abutting neighbors who claimed a right to use the clients’ beach area on Lake Todd in Bradford and to drive over the clients’ property. After both parties presented expert surveyor testimony and explained their respective interpretations of more than 150 years of deeds in a seven-day trial, the trial court ruled in favor of Kelly’s and Derek’s clients. The abutting neighbors appealed to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. After the parties filed extensive briefs, the New Hampshire Supreme Court upheld the trial court’s decision in favor of Kelly’s and Derek’s clients.
