Construction Project Claims
Whether it’s a small home remodeling job or a large commercial development, construction projects and that laws that govern them are complicated. The financial and emotional stakes are high for owners and contractors alike. Projects can and often do involve a myriad of legal issues - specialized contracts, Building Codes and project design issues, zoning and permitting, contractor licensing and bonding, OSHA and EPA laws, insurance and indemnification, workmanship standards and industry warranties, Mechanic's Liens and payment issues, bonds, and even Ohio's many consumer protection statutes.
Unfortunately, knowing the law is often not enough – good construction lawyers need to understand the industry itself, because project disputes are extremely fact-intensive. Understanding how these laws apply to a particular project's facts is not for the faint of heart - or an attorney without direct construction law experience. Too many otherwise experienced attorneys dabble in construction disputes – often with poor results. They might know the law, but do they know construction? Do they speak the language? In my opinion, technical and industry knowledge is necessary for the best legal representation.
As a construction law attorney, contractor, and arbitrator, I bring 26 years of experience and hundreds of successfully resolved project disputes to work for you. And, my experience with Ohio’s consumer statutes, like the Consumer Sales Practices Act, the Home Solicitation Sales Act, or the Home Construction Services Act, gives you an edge. Let me help you with your problem project before things get out of control.
