For over 20 years, I have counseled construction companies, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, owners, real estate developers, design professionals, insurance companies, sureties and a variety of other companies on their litigation and contractual needs.
With so many years of hands-on experience in construction matters, I am uniquely qualified to give my clients practical, effective assistance that combines detailed familiarity with construction industry practices and a thorough knowledge of construction, real estate and business law. I have resolved disputes involving hundreds of construction projects, some valued in excess of $100 million.
I have a strong level of trust with my industry clients. I want my clients to view me as a key subcontractor. I interact with construction clients in the ways that are most comfortable for them and can deal effectively with all management levels, from the foremen and supervisors at the job site to the owners and executives.
Having thorough knowledge of industry practices and terminology, and familiarity with the organization and activities of construction jobsites, I can act as a business counselor and member of the team, not merely as an outside legal advisor. I form long-term relationships with my clients, having served many of them for well over a decade.
This same experience and integrity shapes my general commercial litigation and business practice. I handle the full spectrum of trial activity, from discovery to appeals, in matters such as contract disputes, business torts and fraud, partnership and business entity issues, real estate and intellectual property disputes. I am admitted to all state and federal courts in California, and am experienced in proceedings before the American Arbitration Association, Judicial Arbitration and Mediations Services (JAMS) and similar dispute resolution forums.
