Our services

If you are a bank or a lender, collecting payment owed can sometimes be difficult and stressful. A skilled lawyer who has a comprehensive command of construction law can help you navigate the system and take appropriate legal action. In Northern California, Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation frequently helps clients with the following matters:

  • Performance bonds: Performance bonds are used to protect developers, land owners and lenders in the event that a contractor defaults or fails to complete a project. If the contractor does not perform as promised, the client can seek redress from the issuer of the performance bond. Normally the bonding company issuer will support the contractor to complete or repair the unfinished or unsatisfactory work.
  • Payment bonds: Payment bonds are usually required in conjunction with performance bonds. In California, according to Civil Code 3247, any construction project costing $25,000 or more requires posting of a payment bond. A payment bond allows unpaid subcontractors and material suppliers to file a claim for any unpaid services or materials.
  • Mechanic’s liens: A contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional who completes work on a project but does not receive payment may file a mechanic’s lien. A competent construction litigation lawyer can help you understand the law related to mechanic’s liens in California so you can avoid costly financial and legal pitfalls.

We advise our clients on ways to resolve disputes in a timely and efficient manner when possible. However, we recognize that sometimes litigation is the only recourse. Our highly qualified legal team works diligently to protect the rights of clients in Alameda County and the Tri-Valley.
