Construction Law

Our Construction Law Attorneys Build the Case for Your Business

How can you know the business of construction? By being involved in it firsthand. Our principal partner, William Howard, worked construction jobs to help make his way through college. Such hands-on experience combined with extensive training in construction law creates an all-the-more qualified attorney to handle the most complex construction case. This is just an example of how the Howard Law Group delivers the kind of experience and background that few other law firms can match.

More often than not, our dedicated construction law attorneys are defending claims against our clients. We’ll advise a settlement when it’s in our clients’ best interests, but if that’s not the case, our lawyers will prepare the strongest defense possible and fight hard for a favorable decision.

Our construction law attorneys are skilled and experienced in representing property owners, developers, general contractors, builders, subcontractors, laborers suppliers, architects, and engineers.
