- Construction Injuries and Liens
We are called upon to defend owners, developers, and contractors who are blamed for construction injuries. Also, we advise our contractor clients on the best methods to establish and perfect their construction lien rights, so we can foreclose on those liens if they are not paid, and we have defended property owners against wrongfully filed liens.
- Fire Loss and Landslides
We have enjoyed success in navigating the complex evidentiary, causation, and insurance issues of fire loss and landslide cases.
- Product Defects
We investigate the alleged failure of products with experts and prosecute those who are responsible for it, defend those accused of causing or contributing to it, or both.
