Errors and omissions

Errors and omissions in site plans can severely affect the progress of your project. The Turlington Law Firm has extensive experience handling these disputes and protecting the interests of contractors, owners, architects and engineers.

Contract disputes

Construction projects often require the signing of numerous contracts to secure access to labor and materials. A breach of one of these contracts can cause havoc at your work site. The Turlington Law Firm ensures clients get the compensation and services they need to finish their projects on time. We also help clients draft and review contracts to protect their interests in the future.

Mechanic’s liens

The David J. Turlington III team helps contractors and material suppliers draft, serve, file and enforce mechanic’s liens against property developers and owners to ensure payment for the services that were rendered. We also represent contractors, developers and owners, to help them vacate improper or exaggerated liens brought against them.

Material suppliers’ rights

Suppliers have many of the same rights as contractors and deserve the relief that they are entitled to by law. We help suppliers receive the compensation they deserve by enforcing personal guarantees made by property developers and assist in filing liens, stop notices and writs of attachment on their behalf.

Bid contests, mistakes and protests Surety bond claims
