Construction Litigation and Construction Defect
Construction projects are highly coordinated and strategic projects. They take planning and numerous specialized contractors to ensure the safety of the project throughout completion. From private home construction to multi-million commercial projects, construction projects in Houston come in all sizes and scopes.
