Construction Litigation

Whether you’re putting in new floors or building your own custom dream home, construction projects are a big step for all homeowners. Unfortunately, they don’t always go to plan. Problems can arise on any project, big or small, and once you start tearing down walls or removing drywall it’s often too late to cancel the project.

On some projects, there may be issues with the contractor. Afterall, anyone can open a contracting business; there’s no skill-testing component. But what do you do when you’ve reached the end of the project, you’ve already paid the contractor their money, and you’re unhappy with the workmanship? Perhaps you’ve fired your contractor halfway through the project and now they’re threatening to file a builders’ lien against your home? Now that sounds scary!

In situations like these, the lawyers at Munro & Crawford are here to help. We understand the frustration and confusion that often accompanies a renovation gone wrong. When you come and see us, we promise to take the time to explain the nuances of the law to you in language you can understand. We will also do our best to explain the economics and timeline of a construction litigation claim, so you will be able to make an informed decision about how best to proceed. If you have questions about a construction issue, call and make an appointment today!

[Munro & Crawford] honored my grieving process while at the same time taking care of matters and guiding me through the myriad things that needed doing. Over the last year and a half I have experienced a sense of easy access, guidance, cooperation and care, far different than what I might have expected from a legal process.
