Thorough counselor consults with industry experts

Defending construction cases requires specialized knowledge of industry practices and standards. My firm works regularly consults with qualified experts in construction defect cases, including general contractors, structural engineers, soil engineers, geotechnical engineers, statisticians and architects. My firm employs state-of-the-art diagnostics and analyses to fortify your case.

Dedicated attorney saves clients time and money through arbitration and mediation

Often parties can avoid expense and delay by mediating disputes about provisions in construction contracts. Moreover, many construction contracts have clauses that require nonbinding or binding arbitration to resolve disputes. I have experience representing parties in arbitration and mediation proceedings. My firm is often able to negotiate lasting solutions that save clients time and money and allow them to get their projects back on track.
