Construction law involves all aspects of the building process, from drafting contracts and obtaining permits to the completion of physical projects. It’s essential that you comply with local, state and federal laws and regulations. Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation provides comprehensive construction law support. Our competent lawyers handle all types of matters — from reviewing contracts to entering into fierce litigation.

Types of construction law cases

Over the course of our practice, Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation has become known for deftly handling the most complicated cases, including those involving construction defects and collections. We recognize that construction projects have a timeline and that a legal snag of any degree can ultimately cost you time and money. When you seek our assistance, we move quickly to provide you with sound advice on the logical next step, and provide answers to your questions. Below are some of the construction law matters with which we are especially skilled:

  • Contracts: A construction contract must be signed by all parties involved before construction can commence. A solid contract should clearly outline the obligations of all parties. Our attorneys can review an existing contract to ensure that it is thorough, or help you draft or negotiate a contract.
  • Permits: Starting a construction project without the required permits can result in costly fines and possibly the removal of any unlawful modifications or construction. We can help you obtain the necessary permits to ensure that you comply with city, state and federal construction regulations.
  • Express and implied warranties: Warranties explain a contractor’s liability for construction defects. Express warranties outline guarantees that cover quality and workmanship and are included in the construction contract. Implied warranties are warranties the law expects you to give to the other party. Examples of implied warranties include the Implied Warranty of Accuracy, Implied Warranty of Merchantability, and the Implied Warranty of Suitability.
  • Bonding: In construction, bonds are used to ensure a contractor’s performance and/or payment. Our lawyers have considerable experience dealing with all aspects of construction bonds, including breach-of-contract issues and lawsuits.
