Within an hour of the first time I called you, you were literally at my [office] in person to help; you named the expert and shepherded him through this, filed the answer yourself, coached me at each critical decision point, then right on cue swooped in and settled the case on terms of unconditional surrender by the [opposing party]. We are most impressed, and very grateful. Thank you.”

Disputes among owners and contractors, sureties and claimants, and between the trades themselves, are a near-consistent fact of life on both simple and complex construction projects. As every commercial transaction involves some degree of risk that a dispute may develop, business clients will inevitably find themselves in need of competent and proficient legal counsel to access the merits of its position and to develop the strategies best calculated to reach successful results.
