Construction defect litigation can be complex, but winning you a full recovery is really the result of a simple formula we use – set the case for trial and get paid by the jury if the wrongdoers won’t pay you. While we understand the technical aspects of construction, we understand juries even better, and that is what sets us apart from other construction defect attorneys and is what gets you paid. Combine our trial expertise with our construction defect experience and you get a unique set of trial attorneys that win record recoveries. Complex design and defect issues, combined with the fact that there are strict limits on the time in which a construction defects claim must be filed — means you need to speak with an attorney at Howry Breen & Herman about your rights and options as soon as you can.
