Construction Defect Case
I chose Hans over one of his competitors because he appeared to be more professional, ethical and approachable. I was right. Hans did a good job handling my case, answering all my questions and remaining engaged. If I had to do it all over again, I'd hire him again. I definitely recommend him for construction defect cases.

Hans was knowledgeable and helpful over an extended time on a complex case. He knowlege and experience with of the construction bisness was an asset to the case. There was a problem early on the case when it was assigned to a junior attorney . there was a lack of follow up and communication about the status of the case. This improved greatly when Alyssa Miller was assigned. I also think it would have been helpful if we had been advised to seek addition legal assistance in dealing with the Insurance company for coverage on the issue.

Got us the settlement we deserved. I highly recommend Hans Tuft
My husband and I hired Hans Tuft to represent us in a construction defect case involving a very large and extensive roof replacement. This was an extremely stressful, complicated and expensive situation that Hans Tuft successfully and expertly navigated us through. We were ultimately able to recoup the replacement cost of the roof which was several hundred thousand dollars!! Through this personal experience I have come to appreciate how complicated construction defect is and how critical it is to secure the right attorney right away. Mr. Tuft helped us navigate the legal system. He helped us hire a quality engineer so that everything was documented correctly and would be admissable in court. Mr. Tuft also led us through the process of having the roof properly repaired and our attempt for pre-trial mediation. Going to trial is a trying, exhausting process that requires a lot of preparation. Mr. Tuft did a great job of navigating us through all of this so that my husband and I properly understood the process. Mr. Tuft gave us the opportunity to provide input into the trial, and prepared us as necessary. Hans Tuft did a great job representing us in court in front of a jury and was able to secure a great settlement for us. Ultimately, the jury awarded us what we were requesting for our settlement and my husband and I were finally able to put this behind us. I am very grateful to Hans Tuft for the job he did on our behalf. Mr. Tuft is knowledgable about construction defect, is experienced in navigating thru these kind of cases, is incredibly hard working at representing his clients, and is also very pleasant to work with. I am very grateful Hans Tuft represented us and I highly recommend to others who need legal representation.

Review of Hans Tuft on a construction defect case
This was a case of construction defects. The overall outcome was less than we were hoping for but I felt we were working as a team and Hans cared about how the case was going. He was very busy and sometimes documents went out at the last minute but they were always done. His staff was very helpful also, He would put extra effort when needed. I highly recommend Hans and his firm.

Trinity United Methodist Church
Mr. Tuft and his firm representative our church in a law suit against an insurance company that had refused to pay the cost of our estimated damages caused by the poor workmanship and over site of a roofing company. Mr. Tuft and his team represented TUMC in a trial by jury and the result was in the Church's favor. Details and the manner in which they represented the church's claim was honest and done in a professional way.
