Our construction-based expertise is particularly helpful in guiding clients through the process of major construction or reconstruction contracts. The aid of competent and experienced construction counsel can help a builder deal with potential disputes and challenges immediately, before problems escalate and the project’s progress is delayed.

Construction Defect Litigation

The Firm’s founders, Steven G. and Kelly G. Richardson, have participated in the prosecution and defense of construction defect claims for more than 24 years. They have obtained a number of settlements and verdicts in multimillion-dollar amounts. In one case, a judgment of almost $1 million was obtained for a single homeowner after a jury trial. In another, they successfully sued the developer of a commercial property – who then hired our legal experts to assist him in obtaining indemnity!

We offer a variety of fee arrangements on construction defect cases and work side by side with our clients to offer them the legal representation they need at a price they can afford.
