Q & A
What is a skill you possess that clients prize?
I pride myself on my attention to detail, which is valued by the clients and critical to my success in construction law practice. In negotiating construction agreements, accounting for and understanding all the details are indispensable to avoid potential issues that could delay a project, or worse, result in litigation. In matters of litigation or alternative dispute resolution, attention to forensic details and the procedural nuances unique to construction law, can make or break a case. This is especially true for large mixed-use projects, where you can have dozens of parties involved, multiple issues, and voluminous documentation that needs to be analyzed.
