A Fresh Approach to Construction Law

Darren J. Duzyk, PLLC.

In 2005, after practicing exclusively in the area of construction law for 13 years, I started my own practice devoted to representing clients in the construction industry.  I started my firm based upon my belief that the construction process demands an elevated need and understanding of both construction and design concepts and because my background working in construction operations has enabled me to be a much bigger asset to my clients.  For over 25 years now, whether the issue is front end transactional work, dispute and claim avoidance or handling a complex litigation or arbitration, if it relates to the construction arena, that is where you will find me.  

My legal practice and mediation/arbitration services are devoted exclusively to the construction arena.  The Kentucky Bar Association explicitly states that I may not refer to myself as a “specialist” and that I must state that Kentucky law does not certify specialties in legal fields.  However, I am permitted to describe my practice in a factual manner.  So here are the facts… I am a construction lawyer, plain and simple.  This means that I only serve clients engaged in the construction arena whether they are owners, designers, engineers, architects, contractors, design builders, construction managers, subcontractors, material suppliers, insurers or sureties.  I am a construction lawyer in that I serve the transactional and litigation/arbitration and claim needs of the construction community and do not perform services in others areas of business or industry.  For a more complete understanding of my background and experience as well as an explanation of how I try to differentiate myself from my peers, please visit the other sections of this website.



Darren has truly been an asset to us defending claims against our firm. He fully understands construction from the inside out and easily grasps the intricacies of our engineering business. He is innovative and aggressively defends his client. Having worked with several construction attorneys, Darren is one of the best.

Out of State?

A world of statesI frequently represent construction, engineering and design clients on a wide variety of projects located throughout the southeast and have worked on numerous projects located in other states providing services to Kentucky-based clients and clients from other states.

Front End Services

My previous experience has given me the opportunity to be directly involved in the operations side of construction to handle risk management, insurance, banking and surety issues. I utilize this experience in advising clients on front end operational matters and contract negotiation to help control risk and avoid claims.
