Choose One of the most qualified Board Certified Construction Attorneys

We’ve earned the prestigious construction credentials and possess the practical jobsite experience that less qualified Board Certified Construction Attorneys want you to think they have. Astonishingly few (less than 10%) of Board Certified Construction Attorneys have any construction background whatsoever. Extensive experience working on jobsites as construction professionals gives us discerning insight to know precisely how, when, and where jobsite mistakes occur and how to prove their liability. Our synergistic proficiency in BOTH construction AND construction law gives us an unprecedented comprehensive working knowledge of construction dynamics to most effectively and cost-efficiently prevent dispute escalation and prevail in construction litigation.

“Construction experience distinguishes those who merely practice construction law from those who’ve mastered the art.” ®
Fullfilling the Construction Industry's Demand for Better Legal Representation

After several years of working as a field engineer, estimator, project manager, and designer, Mike recognized the construction industry’s dire need for competent construction attorneys with the necessary construction background to understand the fundamental complexities of construction cases. To better serve the interests of his fellow construction professionals and the general public as construction consumers, he became a construction attorney and founded Florida Construction Law®. As fellow members of the construction profession, our Firm thinks constructively and collaboratively to promote accountability, responsibility, and integrity within the industry. Well-known for designing constructive solutions and restoring working relationships, we’ve earned the respect and trust of the construction community and its consumers.

Full-Disclosure Billing

  • What stops attorneys from over-billing? Their honor. That’s why trust is so important.
  • Rather than block-billing, we bill in 6-minute increments, detailing services rendered and itemizing the value of complementary services provided.
  • We do not bill attorney rates for work that’s actually performed by supportive legal staff. We minimize our clients’ expenses by delegating systematic, procedural duties to paralegals and associates whose rates are substantially less.
  • We do not bill clients for overhead or administrative expenses.
  • We do not churn files. We strictly adhere to the budgets our clients designate.
  • Everything is negotiable (retainer fee, billing rates, terms of service). We customize our service plans to meet our clients’ unique needs. For transactional work (drafting or reviewing contracts, setting up business entities), we negotiate a flat fee. We keep our clients satisfied with the value of our services.

Quality Control Guaranteed

We do not delegate legal research, discovery, or representative responsibilities to junior associate attorneys or paralegals.

Conveniently pay via credit card (checks also accepted)
