Contractor Disputes

Long Island Construction Attorney

Long Island hosts a large community of contractors and sub contractors who work hard to provide workmanship of the highest quality to be found anywhere. Unfortunately there are also situations where a few ‘bad apples’ may spoil the reputation of the bunch. As this law firm has a strong history in providing for the needs of Long Island contractors, and sub contractors on both private and public projects, we are able to use that experience to also help the homeowner who may be dealing with a ‘bad apple’ or a Long Island contractor dispute.

When the typical homeowner decides to have a renovation, addition, or alteration performed on their home, or to construct a new residence, the homeowner expects trust, fair dealing, and being able to rely upon the contractor’s higher level of construction knowledge. This position of trust however can be violated and taken advantage of by a bad apple.

Sometime contractors may look to increase their scope of work by not wanting to provide written proposals for work. Instead, it becomes more convenient to proceed on conversations, or saying, “we can figure out a price after the work has been done.” Some contractors may even use this ‘extra work’ as the basis to file a lien on the property should you not pay.

This construction law firm uses its experience to assist homeowners dealing with Long Island contractor disputes and issues. As contractors are provided lien rights under New York law, prosecuting and claims that a homeowner may have, or providing a defense to a homeowner must be brought timely to be effective. This Long Island law office has a policy of offering a free no-obligation initial consultation to see if we may be able to assist you. Contact a Long Island construction attorney.
