  • Negotiated the outright dismissal of a commercial roofing contractor’s lawsuit against the owner with no monetary exchange and prior to filing any responsive pleadings or motions where contractor’s potential recovery after offsets for defective work would have been significantly less than the amount of attorney fees that would have been incurred had contractor followed through with litigation.
  • After commercial restoration contractor’s direct negotiations with owner regarding unpaid invoices came to an impasse as a result of owner’s stall tactics (including vague allegations that contractor’s work was incomplete and lacked sufficient backup documentation), filed a demand for arbitration against the owner and settled the case less than three months later for the full principal amount of contractor’s claim.
  • Obtained complete dismissal of a subcontractor’s mechanic’s lien against a hospital owner where less than three percent of the $278,000 lien was reasonably itemized.
  • Assisted owners in a high profile construction defect dispute settle their claims against the general contractor for payment in excess of the owner’s total cost of repairs on the eve of arbitration.
