Legal Support For Construction Disputes
Construction projects are highly complex undertakings, often requiring the expertise of multiple contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other parties. With so many stakeholders and moving parts, it is critical that your lawyer understand both the legal and practical challenges that you face.
I am David C. Burkett, a trusted construction law attorney for individuals and businesses throughout the Seattle Metroplex. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience representing homeowners, contractors, and construction professionals, I handle a range of construction law issues, including:
- Preparation, negotiation and enforcement of construction contracts
- Construction and design defect claims
- Claims for change orders and extra work
- Construction liens and payment disputes
- Public bidding and procurement
- Insurance coverage matters
- Litigation and dispute resolution
- General project support
Swift But Intelligent Representation
Litigation is often stressful, costly and drawn-out, making it the wrong answer to many legal problems. In many cases, alternatives like mediation, arbitration and administrative hearings yield positive results. When trial is the best way to protect your interests, however, I am prepared to present your case to a judge or jury.
My clients appreciate the incisive insight and experience that allow me to quickly evaluate their situations and propose efficient solutions. I do not follow a checklist or use an assembly-line approach on behalf of my clients. I find the right course of action — one that is most likely to save them money, time and stress.
