We help entrepreneurs in creating the right entity in order to protect their personal liabilities, and legal rights.

We work with builders, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and architects to protect them against liability in all of the different stages of a construction project. We do this by first making sure that the contract executed between our client and the owner of the project is drafted in a way that it protects all of the rights and liabilities of our client. In the middle of the project, we assist with any modifications, or alterations to the original contract. Finally, at the completion of the project, we assist in collection for our client by placing and enforcing mechanic's lien on projects that refuse to pay for work completed.
