Construction Litigation

Handling Payment Disputes And Defect Claims — With Strength And Tact

Construction litigation generally arises from some sort of payment dispute. Essentially, most construction lawsuits are struggles in which:

  • A party wants to be compensated for work it did.
  • A party paid someone for work that wasn't done.
  • A party paid someone for work that wasn't done properly or completely.

At Ferrucci Law Group (FLG) in Laguna Woods, California, I advise and represent clients who need help resolving serious construction disputes. I am knowledgeable in the area of California construction law and tactful in dealing with contentious cases. Many of my clients are property owners, developers, general contractors and subcontractors in Southern California.

Mechanic's Liens, Stop Notices And Other Tools

Most parties involved in construction are very familiar with mechanic's liens and stop notices — methods utilized to secure payment — but they may not know when and whether they need a lawyer. I can help you answer questions like:

  • Will allegations of construction defects prevent me from getting paid?
  • How do I record and foreclose on a mechanic's lien?
  • How does a stop notice work?
  • What if a contractor or subcontractor did defective work for me or my business or failed to complete the work?
  • What if I paid a contractor, but he or she used the money for something other than my project?
  • How can I have a mechanic's lien removed from my property?
  • Can I force a construction lender to pay me directly from the construction fund?
  • How do I make a claim against a payment, performance or licensing bond?
  • How can a construction litigation attorney help me?
