Our experienced team of construction attorneys advocate for our clients’ interests in court, arbitration and administrative agency hearings, and they are dedicated to providing clients with the best possible results.

Handling construction disputes for more than 20 years
Our construction law attorneys help clients avoid and resolve construction disputes in the following areas:

  • Architectural and engineering errors
  • Contract disputes
  • Collections and payment disputes
  • Insurance coverage
  • Material suppliers’ rights
  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Architectural and engineering conflicts

Errors and omissions in site plans can severely affect the progress of your project. Our firm has extensive experience handling these disputes from every angle, and has protected the interests of contractors, owners, architects and engineers when conflicts of this nature arise.

Contract disputes
Construction projects often require the signing of countless contracts to secure access to labor and materials. When one of these contracts is breached, it can cause havoc on your worksite. Cockriel & Christofferson, LLC helps clients get the compensation and services they need to finish their projects on time. We also help clients draft and review contracts to protect their interests in the future.

Collections and payment disputes
Our firm handles all situations involving payment disputes, including:

  • Bid contests, mistakes and protests
  • Collections
  • Non-payment for extra work
  • Surety bond claims
  • Stop notices
  • Work stoppages and delays
  • Writs of attachment

We expect the unexpected, and our lawyers work to get our clients the relief that they need. We also represent property developers and owners, helping them fight unjustified claims brought against them.

Insurance coverage
Insurance companies often cause serious problems during the construction process. If an insurance company has denied or disclaimed your coverage, Cockriel & Christofferson, LLC can help you get the protection you need to move forward.

Material suppliers’ rights
Suppliers have many of the same rights as contractors and deserve the relief that they are entitled to. We help suppliers receive the compensation they deserve by enforcing personal guarantees made by property developers, and assist in filing liens, stop notices and writs of attachment on their behalf.

Mechanic's liens
Cockriel & Christofferson, LLC helps contractors and material suppliers draft, serve, file and enforce mechanic’s liens against property developers and owners to ensure payment for the services that were rendered. We also represent contractors, developers and owners, helping them to vacate improper or exaggerated liens brought against them.
