With the Chattahoochee River and the dog River Reservoir, Douglas County is one of metro Atlanta’s most beautiful areas. Businesses are moving into Austell, Douglasville, and Villa Rica which means that the local construction market is growing! Our construction lawyers can help you quickly and economically file mechanics and materialmen’s liens, payment bond claims, statutory per-construction notices and any other issues related to Georgia construction law.
Our law firm has been focusing on the needs of construction professionals for almost 25 years; during this time, we have successfully prepared and enforced thousands of construction lien claims and payment bond claims (Georgia’s Little Miller Act and Federal Miller Act claims) throughout Georgia. We currently have two offices with plans to expand, and we serve all of your construction needs in Douglasville, Austell, and Villa Rica from our conveniently located metro-Atlanta office. Of course, materialmen’s liens are filed in the county where the project is located and an enforcement action may be in yet another county. If you have any claims, hire a law firm with a state-wide presence such as us.
In addition to our decades of experience, our lien and bond attorneys are leaders in their field: we regularly conduct and are asked to speak at seminars on Georgia’s lien laws, construction contracting, and similar topics. We maintain an authoritative blog on Georgia construction law issues where our readers can learn about significant state and federal legislation, recent court decisions, and practical tips which can save your business money and reduce your risk. We are able to do all this because we understand Georgia’s complex construction lien and bond requirements, and we know business. Clients across the country rely on us to held them understand and enforce their lien rights–from initial filing to enforcement and foreclosure of materialmen’s liens.
Although we regularly advise clients on contracting issues (we draft contracts, we negotiate contracts, and we interpret contracts), we also help make sure that the money owned to contractors and subcontractors on construction projects is paid to them. If need to find a Georgia construction lawyer to answer your questions or if you haven’t been paid for your work–no matter the location of the project–please contact us today!
