Attorney Dan Willard is an AV Preeminent-rated* lawyer who founded this law firm in 1991, and has since built a stellar reputation for earning favorable results in construction matters in Maryland and D.C. courts. Dan has more than 25 years of experience representing individuals and businesses of all sizes in complex, high-value construction disputes.
Construction and engineering projects can end because of construction litigation issues. We help suppliers, subcontractors, contractors, engineers, owners and architects.
We bring — and defend — all types of construction claims on behalf of owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, suppliers, manufacturers, and design professionals.
We investigate each construction dispute, in concert with construction experts hired in consultation with our client, to determine whether errors, omissions, or contract or statutory breaches occurred. As appropriate, we can provide relevant legal advise to our client on how to proceed with remaining construction. In concert with the experts, we look to calculate ranges of damages caused to our client and/or other parties, gather expert testimony to seek to allocate fault among the parties, and plan a course of action for a recovery or defense. If litigation follows, we pursue court authorized "discovery" to obtain the other parties' evidence and then work closely with fact and expert witnesses to seek a successful settlement, arbitration award, or trial verdict.
We represent clients in construction arbitration and in litigation. Also, we draft construction agreements, and we counsel clients on the management and avoidance of construction claims and disputes. We represent clients in actions under the federal Miller Act or state bond statutes ("Little Miller Acts").
