    When it comes to construction and design professional litigation, Amanda (Bennett) Buffinton is one of the best lawyers you will find! I have worked with Amanda for over ten years, and she has developed a strong reputation for delivering very competent legal counsel to our firm's clients in all matters involving construction and design professional legal issues. I strongly encourage existing and potential clients of our firm to utilize Amanda when they are confronted with a construction or design professional dispute or oppportunity, as her work delivers favorable results in a cost effective manner.
