History On Saturday July 25, 2015 my former clients, turned very dear friends of mine, presented me with a once in a life time gift; a Defender 110!! The Land Rover was bestowed upon me as a token of their gratitude for successfully representing them all in United States District Court following the seizure of their own Defenders by the Dept. of Homeland Security and other federal agencies in the case US v. Land Rover Vehicles, et. al., on July 15th, 2014.

This Registry is established on behalf of all of the Land Rover owners for whom I have fought!!! Thank you for allowing me to represent your legal rights and defend your Defenders!!!

Every Rover tells a story...that one is a Great American Novel.

Congratulations Will, and we look forward to seeing her at Uwharrie.

As we have discussed numerous times, there is a destiny if one chooses to follow it. You have, and this is the perfect end to one chapter whilst the beginning of yet another!!
Awesome work, and appropriately awesome Defender!!
Keep the sun to your back....

No, they actually received it back last June (2015). I had two registry entries and I decided to update and consolidate them into one, since I only have one Defender. These are the same entries from the other registry from a year ago, just carried over.

(Edit: I went back and updated the posts above with their original return dates.)
