About me


I have represented Minnesota clients in the construction industry since 2004, from small subcontractors to large general contractors, in a large array of matters including defect litigation, lien foreclosure and defense, contract drafting and interpretation, and general liability insurance issues.  I have particular expertise in construction defect matters involving the Minnesota Common Ownership Interest Act (MCIOA), handling numerous multi-party, multi-million dollars claims on behalf of general contractors as well as subcontractors.I have now brought that experience to Levin & Edin, where our focus is on multi-family construction defect litigation.

Levin & Edin is a law firm with substantial experience in the resolution of construction defect claims. Our attorneys help condominium and townhome Associations to recover the cost of repairing defects to their projects.
