Tips for hiring and using your Construction Attorney

April 12, 2010

Often, people in the construction industry don’t bother to hire an attorney until they are in trouble. An owner isn’t paying them. A subcontractor has filed a lien on the property. Another contractor or homeowner is suing them. When your back is up against the wall, how do you find and use a construction attorney to your best advantage?

Check out the post on “How to be an Effective Construction Client” written by Jordan Furlong (@jordan_law21) on Christopher Hill’s Virginia-based construction law blog, Construction Law Musings.

In the article, Furlong discusses how to communicate expectations, bottom line deal breakers, and the like with your attorney both prior to hiring him/her and during the matter itself. Read it. Know it. Use it. Your attorney will thank you and so will your wallet.
