Last spring done some plowing for a (use the term losely) friend.Because of some disagreements over how I did not get paid for work on homes he contracted to sheetrock,he refuses to let me pick up my plow.The plow is nuthing speacial and to avoid problems I would leave it,but it was given to me by my late uncle,I know if I goand get it he will get me for tresspassing.The thing is I cant prove its my plow and I cant prove that he owes me $2k for work. Boy I wish I never met this guy.

If that person is keeping you from retrieving your property that is theft by conversion and the differences you have about a sheetrock deal are of no consequence to this matter.

you need help right? Okay whose side are you on? So choose sides and get help. If it's a dispute and could lead to trouble - i'd call a sheriff, tell him what the deal was and take him along while he was in the neighborhood. Be surprised how peacable trespassers get when you go watch them drag out a deer with the game warden along. Your taxes already paid for peace-keepers, might as well use them. Besides you'll have alot less trouble once word gets around. :)

If the plow means a great deal to you go and get it. The sooner the better. I would do just as Michael M suggested.

Now, nothing is worse than a Latrine Lawyer. They can get you in a world of trouble. Sometimes it's best to cut your losses and go on. I know how you feel when people use and abuse you. But, it happens, at one time or another, to all of us. So, the best advise I can give is for you to let it alone. And, pray for the soul of the man that's wronged you. I try to remind myself that, either, in this life or the next, Justice Will Be Served. And, I would just leave you with some lessons my father taught me a long time ago; "Don't leave your stuff laying around. It may not be there when you go back for it. Secondly, don't be too trusting".......gfp

I had a similar situation once. I called the local sheriff, told them the story, and told them I was going to get my stuff, and meant to do it peaceably. I went when I was pretty sure my 'friend' wouldn't be there, and had no problems.
I am getting a lot more choosy about who I have for friends these days, and have a lot fewer of them.The ones I do have though, are the real ones.
I hope that you get your plow back without any trouble. I don't know about you, but I am getting too old for those kinds of problems.
