Construction Litigation

Complexity is no problem

Texas homeowners have depended on me for years. I frequently lecture throughout the state on construction law. I have taken on the builders in town who have tried to get by with substandard materials and performance.

Board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in civil trial law and consumer and commercial law, I have the necessary skill to try a broad range of construction cases that involve—

  • Suppliers
  • Subcontractors
  • Contractors
  • Engineers
  • Owners
  • Architects
  • Developers
  • Construction managers
  • Manufacturers
  • Design professionals
  • Remodelers
  • Sureties
  • Construction lenders
  • Material suppliers
  • 10-year home warranty companies

Legal services

  • Litigation/arbitration. Trying cases involving design and construction defects and other construction disputes.
  • Dispute resolution.  Implementing alternative dispute procedures for the client's best economic interests.
  • Repairs. Trying to get the necessary repairs you need done.
  • Buybacks. Where possible, getting the builder to buy back your defective home.

Answers to your questions about construction litigation

Who is responsible for building defects?

Depending on the nature of the defect, the responsibility may be with general contractors, developers, and builders, even if subcontractors performed the work or if others manufactured the defective construction materials.

 

Am I required to make the necessary repairs while my lawsuit is in pending?

Typically, yes. You will have to protect your property from further damage. However, you may be able to recover repair costs in your lawsuit.

 

A worthy construction litigation case deserves aggressive, ethical representation
