The claim that you have and can enforce in court is adverse possession. You have openly used that parking lot for the requisite time and he cannot now fence it off from your business. You will need a lawyer to enforce your rights so look for one that specializes in real estate disputes. You can find one on Martindale Hubbell which is a listing of high quality lawyers in every speciality.
