A House That's Not Home

Commercial and residential construction can be a trying experience. The details required from architects, contractors and owners, require meticulous and constant attention to the work. Emotions can run high whether the project is commercial or residential, because all parties to the project have their reputation and desires on the line.

So many things can go wrong — incomplete plans, delays, defective work, lack of payment, changes in the work — disputes are common. When disputes arise, resolving them promptly and economically is critical.

The Devil Is In The Details

Details mean everything. Attention to details is critical for a construction project to be successful. Construction litigation is no different. You must be sure that your lawyer is dedicated to all aspects of your case.

During our more than 30 years of practice, we have represented both defendants and plaintiffs, including homeowners, builders, general contractors, subcontractors and insurance companies. In both residential and commercial cases, our attorney has handled:

  • Design and specification claims
  • Delay claims
  • Defective work claims
  • Nonpayment and lien claims.

Planning Your Case, Navigating Your Future

Having worked with both plaintiffs and defendants, we have a distinct advantage: We know how opposing counsel will work to discredit your case. Whether it is project delays, construction disputes, mechanic's liens or construction defects, we are more objective than those who always represent only one side or type of client.

With this knowledge and experience, and our persistent, calm approach to litigation, we can help you obtain the best possible results in your case.

Here in Chattanooga, the Tennessee River runs right through our town. Just as captains plan a course accounting for known obstacles, and prepare for the unknown, we develop a plan for your case that is direct and focused, accounting for known obstacles, and preparing for the unknown. Our consultations are free; contact William G. Colvin PLLC today at 423-551-9750.
