Litigation, especially construction defect litigation, is expensive and time-consuming. No one understands that better than attorneys who spend most of their career litigating complex construction defect cases. But there are more efficient ways of resolving construction defect disputes if both sides are willing. We've written about our approach to settling construction disputes.
While we are adept at negotiating construction defect disputes to satisfactory conclusion, either directly or with experienced mediators, we also try cases as necessary in both Federal and State courts. We represent clients before administrative agencies and arbitration panels when appropriate. Among our attorneys are some of the most experienced trial lawyers in California. Our firm brings four decades of experience resolving construction defect claims, whether by negotiation, litigation or arbitration.
Cases do often settle without trial, but your opponent will know if you have the depth and experience to take a case all the way when necessary. The best settlements are based on the realization that we can be formidable trial opponents. We are proud to say that we are among the few firms in California that have taken complex construction cases all the way to jury verdict.
Our community association practice often involves disputes that require litigation to resolve. These may be enforcement of governing documents; contract claims with vendors; defense of community associations from claims by owners; real property disputes with neighbors or local municipalities; or claims arising from natural disasters.
Our attorneys have encountered and successfully litigated numerous similar matters and have the unique legal knowledge and litigation skills necessary to efficiently represent our community association clients in any matter requiring mediation, arbitration, or litigation to resolve.
