Seattle Construction Law
Construction law is the body of law that deals with legal issues and matters surrounding the construction industry. Construction law primarily affects the interactions between contractors, subcontractors, owners, developers, design professionals, suppliers, construction workers, and construction customers. Just as construction law affects a broad array of groups, it also covers a broad range of legal issues and claims.
In most construction interactions, construction contracts and projects go as planned and the parties are satisfied with the exchange. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. Sometimes things do not go as planned or do not turn out as expected or as contracted for. For example, a contractor may fail to perform under the contract or a customer may refuse to cooperate or provide payment when performance is due. In such circumstances, oftentimes the only option is to invoke the legal system for assistance.

”The staff was very easy to work with. Dan Walker, our Attorney, was very good at advising us when problems arose. Working with him was like working with a good friend. Every call I made to them was answered by someone courteous and helpful. I was always able to get through to whom ever it was that I needed to talk with. Jennifer, is an excellent Senior Paralegal. She did a lot of paperwork for us and was super efficient at sorting it out. Some of the work was a challenge especially since it all had to all be done over the phone and internet. I am very happy to have had them represent me and resolve all the issues involved. I highly recommend them for anyone that will be going through Probate. I appreciate the professionalism and being able to get through to a person and not a recording every time I called. Thank you for a job well done.” – Terry Young (Google Review)
