Construction Law

Building a home or commercial structure is a major investment, both for the owner and the developer or contractor. There are too many potential problems to enter the arrangement without a thorough and detailed agreement.

The Law Offices of Michael Brooks Carroll represents parties in contract negotiation and documentation. We also resolve disputes arising from poorly written contracts or allegations of fraud or breach of contract. While we typically represent homeowners, we have also protected the interests of builders, including resolution of disputes between general contractors and subcontractors. For contractors, we can draft contracts that will protect them from unjustified claims and be sure that they will be able to recover for the work that they perform.

Experienced construction lawyer Mike Carroll and his team serve the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Wine Country and surrounding Northern California. Call 415.788.7600 today to discuss your situation.

Attention to Detail in Construction Contracts

Mr. Carroll brings 30 years of experience in contract law and extensive knowledge of California construction laws. He carefully drafts agreements with builders and architects to anticipate common issues that arise regarding down payments, change orders, delays, warranties and correcting of defects. He can also verify that contractors are licensed, bonded and insured to indemnify clients against financial disaster.

At the Forefront of Construction Law Disputes

By bringing suit under the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, we can recover not only actual damages but attorney fees as well.

We have helped clients recover compensation from builders (and design professionals) for:

In addition, we also represent adjourning landowners against contractors and owners of construction projects, contractors in license suspension and license revocation action brought against them by the Constructors State Licensing Board, and subcontractors or suppliers in payment disputes with developers or general contractors, including filing of mechanic’s liens.
