Why hire construction law attorneys?
Construction law attorneys know the complexities of both construction and contract law, and can help you avoid serious legal problems. With the legal complexities in construction, even the best contractors and most astute property owners find they may have taken action - or failed to take action - that will result in a dispute. A dispute can escalate to a lawsuit, and construction lawsuits are expensive. Construction law attorneys help contractors and property owners avoid these disputes with sound and clear contracts from the start. The construction lawyer's support throughout the project will help you be aware of critical dates, how to handle changes properly, and quickly resolve disputes.
Why hire a construction attorney?
Attorney, Alan Souder, has years of experience managing Public Works projects as a professional engineer. While Kathy Souder, business and case manager, spent over twenty years as an engineer, initiating and overseeing dozens of construction and environmental projects. This unique combination makes the Souders Law Group an effective construction legal team. We have served many Skagit construction companies, businesses, and property owners during the recent challenging years when the industry and owners faced the domino effects of the economical downturn. Getting the advice of an experienced construction lawyer at the start of your project or business can help you become a successful.
As a Skagit based law firm, Souders Law Group has helped property owners and contractors throughout Northwest Washington. Each county of Washington has differing legal requirements in dealing with lawsuits, and this may make a substantial difference in your deciding whether to pursue legal action in a dispute. For example a dispute in a Skagit construction project may be required to be heard and decided through mandatory arbitration if it is less than $50,000. This is not true in Island or San Juan County. Alan's experience as a construction lawyer in these counties can help you understand the proper venue for your case in making decisions about your claim or defense.
