Encountering A Payment


As a leading construction law attorney in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area, I regularly represent stakeholders in the construction industry with regards to claims for payment, changes, and additional work, as well as claims for delays, lost profits, and inefficiencies.

Over my career, I’ve secured payments for hundreds of clients within the construction industry, utilizing the legal tools of construction litigation including arbitration, bid protests, and hands-on guidance in drafting and negotiating contracts in both the public and private sectors. From simple mechanic’s liens to the most complex, multi-layered litigation cases – my legal expertise can be critical to a favorable outcome.
