know your rights

While construction disputes revolve around money there is always an emotional component to construction litigation as well. Homeowners are emotionally invested in the quality and attractiveness of their homes and can be despondent at what they perceive to be poor workmanship. Trades may bristle at allegations of poor workmanship whether by homeowners or general contractors. This personal component of construction litigation can move these disputes beyond the financial.

building your case

Richardson Hall recognizes the emotional nature of construction disputes and works to keep all parties focused on an end resolution as opposed to the emotional conflict. Richardson Hall is experienced at keeping the personal conflict out of the professional dispute. This enables all parties to resolve disputes more efficiently and with greater satisfaction at the process and the result.
