When payment, delay and performance issues effect  a construction project, timely action is  essential to the successful enforcement of the legal and contractual rights of owners,  construction managers, contractors and design professionals. When disputes arise, early consultation with a construction lawyer can can prevent the loss of important legal remedies under Maryland construction law.

  • Contractor and Subcontractor claims under Maryland’s Mechanics’ lien Law.
