Construction Litigation

Skilled Construction Claims Attorney in Newport News

As with most communities, residential and commercial development and construction is prevalent throughout the Peninsula area. Many times, the project does not go exactly as planned. And many times, construction disputes end up becoming lawsuits.

A Newport News construction lawyer from Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. can help you resolve those disputes. We represent clients from national builders to local subcontractors, from owners to suppliers. We are dedicated to finding a cost-effective resolution to construction disputes without the need for litigation where possible.

Let Our Team Manage Your Construction-related Issues

Our attorneys handle matters involving:

  • Contract interpretation, breach of contract claims and surety litigation
  • Construction defects
  • Claims preparation and negotiation
  • Contract defaults and terminations
  • Alternative dispute resolution (mediation and arbitration)
  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Contractor licensing matters
  • Property damage claims

A strong and pro-active approach to addressing or response to a claim or a lawsuit can save a company time and money. When litigation is unavoidable, however, it calls for a zealous, ethical Newport News construction dispute attorney with a wealth of experience in state and federal courts at all levels. We pride ourselves on our tenacity prosecuting or defending construction claims, while keeping our clients informed and making them an integral part of the process at all times.

Resolving Your Construction Claim Effectively

We also accept conflict referrals from larger firms with a broader range of transactional and/or financing services within the construction field. In those cases, our job is to protect the client’s interests to the best of our abilities for that discrete matter, then hand the client back to the referring firm once the litigation is over.

If you have a claim related to public or private construction, or need an attorney to help you defend against such a claim, we are prepared to help.

Begin your case by contacting or calling our firm at (888) 599-4090.
