  • “Green” claims and other construction defects

Axley’s attorneys are embedded in the construction industry and regularly work with industry associations and experts in all facets of construction.

When a claim comes, our construction defect attorneys:
  1. Identify the cause of the defect as early as possible;
  2. Determine the most inexpensive or appropriate remedy (including creative solutions); and
  3. Establish the responsible party or parties

Our philosophy is to solve the problem immediately, so that money goes for repairs and not wasted on legal fees. Axley prides itself on handling legal matters in a cost effective way. We often use mediation as a means to get these disputes resolved early, fairly, and cost-effectively. If mediation fails, Axley’s winning team is ready and able to litigate in state or federal court, or arbitrate.
