Over the past 25 years, our firm has helped hundreds of homeowners recover money for construction defects and other property losses. These cases are typically one of three types:
- You hired a contractor that did poor work, or over billed you, or maybe both, and now you are – or you are soon going to be – out of pocket way more than you anticipated based on the cost of repairing the defective work and resulting damage, or the higher cost of completing the project, or both.
- You bought a home from a seller who concealed defects, and you have now discovered those defects, including perhaps evidence of an attempted “band-aid” repair by a prior owner. Now, you are saddled with the cost of repairing defects and damages that, had they been properly disclosed, would have caused you to walk away from the purchase or negotiate a lower purchase price.
- You have suffered a property loss. It could be a house fire, or a dishwasher leak that floods your kitchen, or a tree falling on your house, or any of a variety of other type of casualty loss. Now you have filed, or need to file, a claim with your homeowner insurance.
There are many nuances to each of these claims, and we urge you to hire competent counsel to help you navigate the tricky path to obtaining the remedies you deserve. It is rarely the case that a bad contractor or a devious home seller or even an insurance adjuster simply says, “You are right, we will pay you every dollar of your loss without a fight.” If you are one of the lucky few – very few – who can accomplish that on your own, then we say, “Well done.” But if you get the usual pushback, delays, and tall tales that make no sense and only leave you stressed out and frustrated, then let us take over your problem and fight for a fair resolution. It is what we do all day, every day.
