Andy Simmons began defending developers, contractors and subcontractors against the epidemic of construct defect lawsuits that made Southern California notorious from 1996 to 1997.  In 2003, he returned to the construction industry, serving as the in-house attorney for an international sports surfacing construction company, for whom he personally handled many lawsuits and transactions involving almost every aspect of construction law on a daily basis.

The firm continues to represent both small and large construction companies in a wide range of construction law matters.

We understand the pressures of the construction industry and the client’s need for prompt, decisive and realistic legal action. We understand the need for legal solutions that make financial sense. We understand that to stay in business, a construction company needs to win the war and not just the battle.

We understand the problems faced by small operators who are faced with legal challenges but do not have their own attorneys on staff and cannot afford large hourly attorneys fees or costly approaches to litigation. We offer flexible and affordable rates for small construction companies and sole proprietors.

Small construction companies often enter into contracts and projects without the benefit of legal advice. Perhaps lawyers are to blame. Some have charged too much for routine review contracts. Our fee for reviewing and revising your contracts and advising you on your options is very affordable. Compare that to the cost of discovering the contract you signed without an attorney does not protect your rights. Let us assist you with your next contract.
