Construction Defects/Property Damage:

While we hope that homes built or purchased by our clients will all be well-constructed, unforeseen problems sometimes arise.  Issues with poor workmanship, defective products or design defects can be daunting for a home owner, as the rules and laws that pertain to insurance coverage and workmanship/product claims are complicated, and in many cases, time-sensitive.

Should you have a need as a home owner or a commercial property owner, we can assist you in obtaining knowledgeable counsel.  In many cases, an initial consultation and, if warranted, an independent property inspection are the simple first steps in determining if one has a case that may be worth pursuing to recoup money for damages.
