With his broad background representing owners, municipalities, state agencies, school systems, housing authorities, construction managers (both agency and at risk), general contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers for more than 40 years, Mike understands all facets of the construction industry and brings that knowledge and insight to bear in helping his clients avoid claims and disputes where possible. When claims arise, his experience and insight allows him to devise a strategy for resolution in the most cost effective method for his clients through alternative dispute resolution. If claims and disputes cannot be resolved, Mike has successfully handled disputes through all levels of state and federal trial and appellate courts, administrative proceedings and arbitrations.
He also has extensive experience in dealing with large, complex construction proceedings, including impact and delay claims and dealing with construction experts in scheduling, productivity, impact, damages, architectural and engineering defects, and related fields.
