When To Call Us
Construction professionals retain our counsel for a variety of different reasons. Sometimes our Dade County contractor lawyers help prevent legal issues from arising in the first place. This could include helping you make sure your business is OSHA compliant or getting you ready for an anticipated inspection. It could also include drafting your contracts to make sure they are airtight with no room for misinterpretation, or reviewing a contract you’ve received from another party before you sign it.
Often, clients get in touch with us after something has already occurred. This could mean anything from an OSHA citation to a contractor-subcontractor dispute.
