New Jersey Construction Law Firm

Newark Construction Law Attorney with Decades of Experience

Construction project managers and operators know that a construction project is no simple matter; rather, construction project planning is a careful science. After months or even years of careful analysis, mathematical equations, and financial investments, a successful construction project will depend on precise organization and execution.

When legal problems arise, you will need professional legal advice from a New Jersey law firm. To prevent costly mistakes before, during, of after a construction project or development, consult a Newark construction lawyer from Ehrlich, Petriello, Gudin, Plaza & Reed, Attorneys at Law.

Protecting Publicly & Privately Owned Projects

Speak to us about your need to file and serve preliminary notices on either your private or public projects. We can offer effective legal counsel to help you assert your lien rights and protect your rights against sureties or other providers of payment and performance bonds. The procedure for filing for liens and other notices may vary for each project, so it is in your best interest to speak with a Newark construction law attorney who knows the ins and outs of the process. We can help direct you through the legal process and ensure that your rights as a construction manager or employee stay protected.

Privately owned projects may have completely different requirements depending on whether the project has a commercial or residential use. Publicly owned projects may have different requirements depending on whether they are owned by local, state, or federal entities. Failure to follow specific state or federal procedures could compromise a project's success.

Resolution of claims through alternative dispute resolution such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration may be possible. Do not try to go through a construction law matter alone or with an inexperienced attorney. Regardless of whether the project is publicly or privately owned, you should not risk a construction project with so much invested time and energy. Our New Jersey construction law attorneys have represented many clients through these proceedings and can help you protect your rights as well.
