    I have now know Alex and his firm for over 5 years. Every time I have referred a client to him they have been happy. He provides cost effective, strong defense in every area of construction law. He is obviously out for the client, who is and will always be number one in Alex's mind. Hire him and his firm and you will not be sorry. They give honest, effective counsel and are there and ready for the battle, if need be.

    Issues involving construction and liens can be very tricky and subject to strict deadlines and restrictions. No one is better qualified to help you work through these issues than Alex Barthet and the members of his firm. They are specialists in this area, and their professionalism and dedication to their clients are without equal.
