We are attorneys/engineers/contractors (A, B, HAZ) specializing in construction law. As your lawyers, in addition to legally representing you, we simultaneously bring over 25 years of experience in the technical design and construction of public and private projects. No other construction law firm can provide you with our specialized background in both law and technical engineering/construction fields; we are uniquely qualified to provide our clients with sound legal advice as well as a technical expert evaluation of their construction claims.
This dual expertise provides our clients with an early understanding of the technical strength of their cases, leading to a definite financial and legal strategic advantage. Typical construction attorneys are neither qualified nor authorized to evaluate the technical aspects of a client's claim and can only rely on the advice of their technical expert witnesses, which are usually assigned in later phases of litigation at high costs to their clients. At The Tarassoly Law Group, our ability to assess the technicality of a claim and relate it to a client's legal rights at the very early stages of a dispute clarifies not only the strength of the client's position but also eliminates the opposing party's potentially frivolous claims.
With decades of active participation in the engineering and construction fields, we have connections with the most qualified expert witnesses with different specialties, which we are able to leverage as needed to support our clients' claims successfully.
In large construction disputes, when teams of expert engineers, architects, and contractors are involved, our founder and lead attorney Dr. Vida Tarassoly oversees and directs the team of technical experts to ensure proper coordination among the different disciplines to achieve the necessary results to support your legal claims.
We represent developers, general contractors and subcontractors, material suppliers, architects, and engineers, providing technically supported legal advice, including litigation, arbitration, and mediation of construction defects, design defects, errors and omissions, delay claims, review and draft of contracts, assist with the permitting process, California Contractor's License Board interface, stop notice services, issues relating to violations of the SB800 Right to Repair Act and more.
“Being experts in the engineering and construction fields, the attorneys at the Tarassoly Law Group have the unique ability to effectively evaluate the technical strength of your claim, as well as your legal stance in your construction dispute. Our technical insight into your dispute gives us an advantage over the opposing attorneys. When we take on your case, you simultaneously get to have an attorney and a technical expert by your side.“
