About Me

I previously co-owned and operated a carpentry sub-contracting company.  Because I worked on job sites and managed the company, I understand the construction industry in a way that any other attorney that has never worked in the industry can. 

I have been providing exceptional and unique legal services to clients in the construction industry because of my experience as an owner and operator of a general contracting and carpentry sub-contracting business. My experience as a contractor gives me an edge over other attorneys who lack practical experience in the field. I understand the challenges, risks, and opportunities that contractors, owners, and developers face in every project, and I know how to protect their interests and rights.

I specialize in construction law, mechanic’s lien law, and construction litigation, representing clients in disputes involving payment, performance, defects, delays, and contracts. I also help clients with drafting, reviewing, and negotiating construction contracts and agreements. I have successfully handled cases in state courts, arbitration, and mediation, achieving favorable outcomes for my clients. I am passionate about advocating for the quality, integrity, and fairness of the construction industry, and I take pride in delivering personalized and effective legal solutions.

I personally dealt with GC’s who do not timely pay and suffered the consequences. I have seen true craftsmen go unpaid or have to accept a percentage of what they were owed and I’ve seen contractors who have no pride in their work perform sub-standard work to make a quick dollar.  As an attorney concentrating in Construction Law and Mechanics Lien disputes, I am constantly faced with the ugly side of the industry, and I understand the consequences of going unpaid, settling for a percentage of a contract and the bad contractors and the damage that they cause to owners — and the damage that owners inflict on tradesmen. 

Having lived the life, I seek to protect my clients with solid contracts and provided advice to keep them out of having to go to court. But, if a matter must be litigated, I have over 30 years of court experience. I have real – world knowledge of the construction industry that other lawyers who never swung a hammer or went un-paid and as lawyer I have prosecuted and defended owners, contractors, and sub -contractors.

I always meet with potential clients at no cost because I believe that every person should have the opportunity to learn their rights and then decide as to the law and how it applies to their situations.

Please see my reviews on Justi.com and other legal sites and see for yourself how I work, in the words of those that I have represented.
