Question on domain and trademark law

I plan to talk to a lawyer about this but right now, I'm doing my research and would like to reach out to the MeFi community for advice.
I own a domain name and I noticed someone is running a site using a very similar domain (ie., if I owned autoblog.com, they're using auto-blog.com).
I ran a content site for several years, ending in 2006 when the site got hacked and I replaced it with a placeholder page.
The other site with the similar domain has been running for almost a year, covering identical material that my site covered in the past.
Do I have a strong case against this site? I simply want them to operate under a different name, surrender the domain over and pay for any legal fees resulting.
