It appear that you have requested a new professional on this question.

The previous expert is correct in saying that we are not permitted to represent JA experts. However, what you can do here is to file a nuisance action either yourself or through a real estate litigation attorney in your area that handles nuisance claims. Since we are not permitted refer any particular lawyer to you, you may have to do your own due diligence to select such a lawyer; but THIS LINK may help you get started.

Here is the supporting law:

The elements of a cause of action for a private nuisance are: "(1) an interference substantial in nature, (2) intentional in origin, (3) unreasonable in character, (4) with a person's property right to use and enjoy land, (5) caused by another's conduct in acting or failure to act" (Copart Indus. v Consolidated Edison Co. of N.Y., 41 NY2d 564, 570 [1977]; see 61 W. 62 Owners Corp. v CGM EMP LLC, 77 AD3d 330, 334 [2010], affd as mod 16 NY3d 822 [2011]). However, "not every intrusion will constitute a nuisance. 'Persons living in organized communities must suffer some damage, annoyance and inconvenience from each other . . . If one lives in the city he [or she] must expect to suffer the dirt, smoke, noisome odors and confusion incident to city life' " (Nussbaum v Lacopo, 27 NY2d at 315, quoting Campbell v Seaman, 63 NY 568, 577 [1876]). The relevant question is whether a defendant's use of his or her property constitutes an unreasonable and "continuous invasion of [the plaintiff's property] rights" (Domen Holding Co. v Aranovich, 1 NY3d 117, 124 [2003]; see Golub v Simon, 28 AD3d 359, 360 [2006]; Rodriguez-Nunci v Clinton Hous. & Dev. Co., 241 AD2d 339, 340 [1997]).
