Experienced Texas Construction Lawyer Protects Clients’ Interests

Whether you are a contractor or you hired one, completing a construction project successfully is of the utmost importance. Even if you’re still in the contract negotiation process or engaged in a dispute about payment or performance, effective legal representation is critical. At the Law Offices of J. Steven Stewart, I advise clients in Texas and throughout the Houston area on a wide range of construction law issues. I understand what’s at stake when building and repair projects trigger legal concerns. You can rely on me to safeguard your interests whether you’re involved in a residential, commercial or developmental project.

Skillful attorney assists with cases relating to construction contracts and liens

Many things can go wrong on a construction site and in the relationships between parties involved in a building or repair project. I use my detailed understanding of the special circumstances that affect these matters when assisting with legal tasks related to:                                                                                     

  • Contracts — I help property owners, contractors and subcontractors anticipate potential problems that can occur during a project and work to negotiate contractual safeguards for any reasonable contingency. If a question exists regarding the interpretation of a provision within an existing agreement addressing construction, materials or something else, I deliver prompt, thorough advice so you can make an informed decision.
  • Liens — A construction, mechanic’s or contractor’s lien is a strong tool designed to ensure that those who do work on a project can get the payment they are owed. Whether you are looking to perfect a lien in order to secure funds or looking to release the infringement on your property because you believe no authentic debt exists, I handle the steps that must be taken.
  • Permitting and land use issues — Without proper authorization, a promising construction job could be stopped in its tracks. Regardless of the type of property involved, I counsel clients on permitting, zoning and land use issues so that they understand what must be done before making a major investment. From there, I advocate for the permits, approvals, revisions and variances needed to maximize the return you get from your project.

In construction, it’s important take care of legal concerns as soon as they appear to avoid larger problems. I am ready to deliver the advice and advocacy you deserve.
