Protecting You At the Outset With Strong Contracts

At the Butler Firm, we would rather help you prevent problems at the beginning than see you face with expensive litigation down the road. Many construction disputes can be avoided by drafting a solid contract at the beginning of a project. By minimizing your exposure to liability, you lay the foundation for a smooth process ahead. We draft and review a wide range of construction contracts, including:

  • Design and build contracts
  • Lump-sum contracts
  • Cost-plus contracts
  • Time and materials contracts

Contact us for competent, reliable counsel on your construction contract matter.

Aggressively Representing Your Interests When There Is Breach of Contract

We understand that litigation is costly and time-consuming. We will work hard to resolve your situation through negotiation. However, if the other party refuses to agree to a fair settlement, we are more than prepared to take your case to the courtroom.

On a job site, a variety of disputes may arise:

  • When subcontractors perform faulty work
  • When clients fail to pay for work you completed
  • When there are allegations of faulty or defective work or materials
  • When employees get hurt on the jobsite

At the Butler Firm, we will help you collect the money owed to you, filing mechanics' or materialmen's liens where necessary. We will work hard to ensure that agreed-upon work is performed to specification. Contact us to protect your rights in breach of contract disputes.
