Practice Groups

Construction Defect

Construction Defect

An array of factors ranging from shortcuts in construction, design flaws, cost-cutting measures, the production of substandard goods, to sloppy construction practices, can collectively contribute to the emergence of defects within both buildings and homes.

Class Action

Class Action

Class Actions are cases in which people join as a class to recover damages caused by a similar wrongful act. Claims, which on an individual basis would be unaffordable, provide strength in numbers against big companies.

Consumer Law

Consumer Law

Consumers have the right to rely on the honesty and integrity of the companies with which they do business.  Often, profit-driven decisions made in corporate boardrooms hurt people living near the factories, or relying on the quality of the product they buy to properly perform.

We help associations recover funds to get the defects fixed

Many forms of construction defects, such as those listed below, are commonly found in buildings, undermining their safety, structural integrity, aesthetic qualities as well as potentially devaluing the project. In the worst case, construction defects, if left un-remedied, create unsafe conditions especially if water intrusion fosters mold development or structural and fire safety systems are compromised. If you believe you have construction defects where you live, don’t hesitate to act.

  • Omission of Code Required Fire Walls
  • Water Intrusion Through Building Envelope
  • Premature Deterioration of Plumbing System
  • Excessive Cracking of Parking Area and Garage Slabs
