Skilled San Diego Construction Litigation Lawyer Protects Your Rights

California attorney experienced in resolving project disputes

A construction project that is significantly delayed or that otherwise goes awry can become a breeding ground for bitter controversies. At the Lunsford Law Firm in San Diego, my team and I have extensive experience dealing with high-stakes construction disputes. I seek practical, cost-effective solutions that allow my clients to move forward and get back to the business of building.

Powerful advocacy for a diverse clientele

My firm has nearly 20 years of experience representing parties to California construction projects, including:

  • Contractors (general and sub)
  • Developers
  • Homeowners
  • Homeowners associations
  • Architects
  • Insurers
  • Vendors

The competing interests of those involved often make construction litigation complex. Always conscious of the client’s bottom line, my firm works to produce real-world solutions, whether through neutral evaluation, mediation, arbitration or, if necessary, aggressive litigation.

A deep and broad construction practice to meet your needs

My team and I work together to handle the full range of construction-related legal claims that can arise before, during and after a project. We have successfully handled cases involving issues such as:

  • Denial of site access
  • Structural failures
  • Bonding and surety problems
  • Delays
  • Design errors
  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Bidding mistakes, protests and contract breaches
  • Work stoppage or suspension
  • Lost productivity
  • Lack of project management/coordination
  • Failure to perform and failure to fulfill guarantees
  • Construction defects
  • Job site accidents, safety violations and injuries
  • Compensation disputes
  • Warranty claims arising after project completion

Depending on the situation you’re facing, the appropriate remedy could be money damages, specific enforcement of a contract or a blend of legal and equitable relief. No matter which path is optimal, you can rely on me to pursue the outcome that works best for you.

Special circumstances involving general contractors and subcontractors

California’s construction business has evolved to a point where nearly all projects of notable size involve a general contractor (GC) and multiple subcontractors. Disputes between these GCs and subs can quickly derail projects, and they usually boil down to disagreements over the quantity, quality or time schedule of the work the subcontractor was hired to provide.

In the best scenario, there will be a written contract that clearly explains each party’s responsibilities. Without such a contract, the parties’ agreement must be gleaned from emails, text messages, project drawings and other documents. Whichever side of the dispute I represent, I carefully analyze the available evidence in order to ascertain and enforce my client’s rights.
