A Different Approach to Construction Law
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 arbitration/mediation/neutral services are devoted exclusively to the construction arena. This means that I only handle construction matters and serve clients in the construction arena whether they are owners, designers, engineers, architects, contractors, design builders, construction managers, subcontractors or material suppliers. I am a construction lawyer in that I serve the transactional and arbitration/litigation 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.
Our company benefits from working with a boots on the ground attorney that understands the construction environment. We don’t pay for a lot of time spent discussing the basics of what we do.

Alternative Dispute Resolution
I am a member of the American Arbitration Association’s Construction Panel of Neutrals, Dispute Review Board Panel of Neutrals, the Dispute Review Board Foundation’s Panel of Construction Neutrals and a trained mediator offering arbitration, neutral and mediation services on matters relating to the construction industry.
Out of State?
I 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.
