About me

     I have focused my practice on construction law and litigation since 1997 and have represented owners, contractors, subcontractors, sureties and suppliers in all aspects of construction.  Clients call upon me to draft and negotiate contracts, address issues during construction, resolve disputes and litigate claims.  I have a wide range of experience in trial, arbitration, dispute resolution proceedings, and administrative proceedings.  I have been involved with cases invovling a range of construction issues, including but not limited to construction defect claims, lost productivity claims, cardinal change claims, delay claims, contract interpretation claims, utility claims, differing site conditions (Type I and II), change order disputes, payment and performance bond claims, lien claims, overinspection claims, liquidated damages claims, suspension and termination claims, warranty claims, errors and omissions claims, and bid protests.


     I am Board Certified in Construction Law by the Florida Bar, a distinction only 279 of the 87,000+ members of the Florida Bar share.  Florida Trend recognized me as a member of Florida’s Legal Elite in Construction Law in 2009, 2010 and 2011.  I have also been recognized in Best Lawyers in America, Construction Law, from 2007 through 2012, and South Florida’s Best Lawyers, Construction Law, in 2009 and 2011.
