Construction Litigation

Our attorneys have relevant experience not only in the legal field but also in the day-to-day operations of a construction business. They are knowledgeable in the specific challenges and concerns that come up now and then during the course of a construction project.  Occasionally disputes develop and our clients want attorneys who are skilled in providing strategic planning and advice and who understand the business and strategies involved in the construction industry. We have those skills and we strive to place our clients in the best position to resolve disputes and when necessary, succeed at trial.  We are zealous advocates for our clients in all legal forums including Federal and State trial and appellate courts, administrative and regulatory hearings, as well as alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings.
