Encountering A Payment
As a leading construction lawyer in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, I regularly represent stakeholders in the construction industry with regards to claims for payment, changes, additional work, 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 mediation, arbitration, mechanic’s lien and bond claims, 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. Please click the button below to discuss your payment emergency!

Prior to establishing Katz Law, I was an associate and then senior attorney in three boutique construction litigation firms, two in Maryland and one in the District. Over those 13+ years, I was trained by some of the best construction litigators on the East Coast, learning best practices and “tools of the trade” in a wide variety of construction disputes. Critically, I was taught the importance of claim methodology, substantiation and accounting processes in achieving negotiated – or, if necessary, litigated – successes.
For nearly two decades now, I have tenaciously put my skills to use helping hundreds of construction stakeholders successfully resolve their legal disputes, including through mechanic’s lien litigation, bond claims, arbitration, mediation, bid protests, and state and federal lawsuits.
