Construction law includes a wide range of disciplines, encompassing all of the areas of law that pertain to the construction or renovation of a property. The local rules and regulations, state statutes, and federal laws and mandates that comprise construction law impact countless individuals and businesses. In short, the construction process is complicated. Builders must adhere to a myriad of rules and regulations, from permits and zoning laws to materials and height restrictions. Before the first drop of concrete is poured or the first tree is cleared from a plot of land, builders must understand these rules and regulations.

Construction work can be hazardous. Employers and contractors that hire skilled and unskilled labor on their job site must comply with federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (hereinafter "OSHA") laws. These regulations are a safety guide that ensures the protection of construction workers. If employers fail to comply with up-to-date OSHA requirements, they may be subject to significant penalties. Working with an attorney is one of the best ways to be certain that you are in compliance with all OSHA regulations to avoid costly lawsuits and avoidable injuries to your employees.
Homeowners, contractors, companies, construction workers, or real estate agents entering into contracts will likely confront confusing legal documents that are difficult to understand. Our well-versed construction lawyers can help you navigate the difficult language. By meticulously drafting and negotiating any deal you enter, your construction attorney will ensure that your final contract complies with local, state, and federal construction laws, in addition to serving your best interest.
Failure to Perform
If you have an agreement with a contractor or sub-contractor that they have failed to deliver on, then there are a number of options available in order to seek a remedy for this failure. When a contract is signed, the work laid out in the contract, as well as the pay and pay schedule, are legally binding. If one of the contracted individuals or companies are unable or unwilling to complete their agreed-upon work, or fails to provide the quality work they advertised, contact us now to get legal support.
When To Hire an Attorney
If you are finding that you are running into issues with contractors, suppliers, real estate agents, or the skilled or unskilled laborers on a job site such as code violations, failure to perform the contracted work, poor workmanship, or disputes about contracted requirements, the team at Stoner Law can help you reach a swift and fair resolution. Trying to handle legal disputes at the same time as trying to manage a job site, keep clients happy, sell or buy a property, or any of the other many tasks and duties you need to perform while dealing with these additional issues, let us take on the legal legwork.
One of the best ways to avoid contract disputes is to work with an attorney throughout the entire contracting process. We can either write or review your contract and ensure that you and all other cosigners are fully aware of the obligations that are going into the contract before signing. When everyone is clear about their obligations before any contract is signed, you can proceed with the work with confidence that you can hopefully avoid future litigation based on different interpretations of the same legal document.
We offer an initial consultation for potential clients who believe that they may benefit from working with a construction attorney, and we will be happy to discuss your unique situation with you in detail.
