Experienced Guidance In Connecticut Construction Law, Litigation And Appeals

My background in both real estate development and asset management has given me a deep knowledge and understanding of construction and construction laws in Connecticut. With over 20 years of working with contracts from both sides of the table, I can often foresee and preempt problems. I can also offer insight and creative solutions if you are facing contract issues.

I have over a decade of focused legal experience in:

  • Mechanic's liens
  • Construction contracts
  • Arbitration
  • Commercial landlord-tenant law and issues, including evictions, leases, security deposit disputes

Should I File A Mechanic's Lien?

While a lien is a common filing, you should fully understand the ramifications. As an experienced construction attorney I can ensure that you file correctly. While the lien form itself looks easy, liens are technical, complex and can have long-range ramifications. Connecticut has specific statutes which require strict compliance regarding:

  1. When and how a lien is to be filed or recorded
  2. The type of information that must be provided
  3. Which notices must be given
  4. Protections afforded

Whenever a lien is involved, it is in your best interest to consult with a construction attorney before filing or responding.

Finding Relief And Resolution With An Injunction

An injunction is a court order that will force parties to either continue or cease an action. People who do not comply with an injunction face fines and even prison time. An injunction can be applied to a wide variety of issues and situations. If you need someone to stop interfering in your business, then an injunction is often a sure way to force them to cease and desist. There are preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders and permanent injunctions. As your lawyer I can advise you as to when to file and injunction as well as how to respond to one.

Holding The Responsible Parties Accountable

In addition to construction issues I have experience in fiduciary issues, including overcharges by fiduciary, fiduciary theft and litigation and appeals. Call my office for qualified, proven legal guidance on:

  • Injunctions
  • Statutory theft
  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Labor disputes

Do you need fiduciary litigation? If, after probate, when your case moves to Superior Court, you think someone is stealing from the estate, was acting inappropriately or persuaded someone to sign a will when they were incompetent, call me. I can assist you to ensure that the estate is handled accurately and correctly as per the terms of the will. I can also help should you believe the fiduciary is charging too much for his or her services.
