Federal Miller Act Attorneys
Litigation over payment bonds in federal construction projects in federal court where mechanics' liens on federal property are barred by sovereign immunity
Construction and engineering projects can end because of Miller Act disputes. We help suppliers, subcontractors, contractors, engineers, owners and architects regarding federal Miller Act bond claims in Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Howard County, Frederick County and throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia.
As part of a comprehensive construction litigation practice spanning 25 years, the law firm of Daniel S. Willard, P.C. in Montgomery County offers competent Federal Miller Act litigation representation to clients in the federal courts of Maryland and the District of Columbia. Dan Willard, a Bethesda lawyer experienced with federal Miller Act claims, works with you and your experts to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your case and to aggressively present your matter to the judge or jury.
We thoroughly investigate each federal Miller Act 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 bring — and defend — federal Miller Act claims on behalf of owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, suppliers, manufacturers, design professionals, risk insurers and sureties.
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.
