Sine 1992, we have been successfully protecting subcontractors and suppliers’ rights in Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area. In fact, we probably file more materialmen’s liens and payment bond claims in Gwinnett than anywhere else!
We Are A Different Law Firm:
Because our law firm has only one focus–construction law–we can help our clients with all of their legal needs from construction contracting issues to enforcing payment. We are different because that is all we do; furthermore, we are your neighbors. Our attorneys and their families are in Buford, Suwanee and the surrounding area. Our families and staff enjoy the many benefits of Gwinnett County – from shopping the Mall of Georgia, seeing a minor league game, or visiting Stone Mountain!
We understand the area and the amazing growth which continues, we understand the laws affecting the construction industry, and we understand business. Consequently, we represent clients who are based elsewhere but may work on projects in Lawrenceville or Norcross and need us to assist them with their Mechanics and Materialman’s Lien Claims or their Miller Act or Little Miller Act payment bond claims. Similarly, we have a significant number of clients based somewhere in Gwinnett County. We would enjoy adding you to our list of satisfied clients; please contact us today if you need a construction lawyer anywhere in Gwinnett County including Buford, Dacula, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Lilburn, Loganville, Norcross, Peachtree Corners, Snellville, Sugar Hill, Suwanee and Stone Mountain.
No matter where you are based of where your projects are located, you, too, can count on our experience, our knowledge and our professionalism to help you get the money which you are paid. As you may know, unpaid materials or labor on a construction job may be lienable by the claimant. Georgia’s laws governing these claims, however, are very particular and even simple mistakes or omissions can invalidate a construction lien. A defective lien can make the difference between getting paid or losing your money altogether. Don’t lose your money!
In fact, in this economy with contractors continuing to demonstrate financial problems, it is more important than ever to protect your potential claims by sending timely Notices to Owners and Notices to Contractors, closely monitor the 60 days after a lien waiver is signed in case you need to file nonpayment notice, consider filing a preliminary lien, and filing a proper Georgia contractor’s lien and/or payment bond claim (remember, some private projects may be covered by a payment bond which give the subcontractors and suppliers working on those project lien rights AND payment bond rights).
We can help you get paid, but we can help you do much more. As construction attorneys, we regularly advise our clients on their contracts, purchase orders, credit policies, delay issues, defaults, damages, licensing–just about any legal issue a construction professional may need.
No only are we and our families active throughout north metro-Atlanta, but we are also active in the industry. We regularly speak to professional groups about Georgia’s lien laws, payment bond statutes, and contract issues; we train clients’ employees through customized seminars and lunch-and-learn session. In addition, we are active in several industry organizations including AGC Georgia (Associated General Contractors), ASA (American Subcontractors Association), and CSA (Construction Suppliers Association).
We have been pioneers in creating a focus on Georgia Subcontractor Law, and we have published extensively on this subject. In fact, we maintain a construction law blog to help educate and inform our readers and clients. In short, we help our clients avoid problems, but when problems occur, we stand by them.
