Manage Construction Disputes, Both Large and Small

The construction industry involves numerous parties and encompasses some of the most dangerous and challenging work. Having a legal professional to manage construction disputes is essential for most contractors, property owners, and developers. And at Stephen Heine Law P.C., we work to resolve disputes in a timely and cost-effective manner. Stephen Heine’s over 40 years of experience trying more than 100 jury trials to verdict has prepared our firm to litigate the most complex cases.

What Does Stephen Heine Cover?

There are three primary disputes in the construction industry that most commonly occur: professional negligence, delay claims, and payment disputes. Stephen Heine Law P.C. has handled numerous variations of each dispute type and can provide reliable litigation services when disputes make it to court. Many construction claims can be resolved via party-to-party negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. We can assist in all.

How We Help

Stephen Heine Law P.C. will manage your construction dispute in one of several ways. Either through arbitration, mediation or litigation, we will pursue the best possible outcome for your case.

  • Arbitration – In an attempt to resolve a dispute out of court, arbitration is always an option. Most construction contracts in the US are American Institute of Architects (AIA) documents. This is important because AIA documents provide that construction claims and disputes can be arbitrated under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. And while arbitration decisions are made outside the judicial system, they carry the same weight as the sanction of law.
  • Mediation – Another option for keeping your construction dispute out of court is through mediation. While arbitration and trials deliver a legal result that all parties must abide by, mediation looks to reach a settlement between parties. As disputes often arise amid a construction project, mediation is best to keep all parties working amicably with one another.
  • Trial – If a dispute cannot be resolved through arbitration or mediation, Stephen Heine can provide you with necessary legal representation. Our team will introduce expert witness testimony, relevant evidence, investigative reports, and persuasive arguments for a trial. We understand how disputes can put your finances and project at risk. Thus, we pursue aggressive litigation strategies to help our clients see the best results.
