Construction Defect

The firm’s constructive defect attorneys represent residential and commercial property owners, as well as developers, general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals in this complex area of law.  Our attorneys have a proven track record of helping residential and commercial property owners recoup losses for legitimate construction defects and have successfully defended developers, architects, general contractors, subcontractors and others in construction-related claims.

Wilke Fleury is well known for successfully prosecuting construction defect claims on behalf of individual residential and commercial owners and homeowner associations, as well as multiple homeowners in mass defect claims against developers and general contractors arising out of the following types of damage:

  • Water intrusion
  • Building settlement
  • Concrete corrosion
  • Wet foundations
  • Stucco cracks
  • Mold
  • Electrical deficiencies
  • Plumbing defects
  • Heating and air conditioning (HVAC) defects

Because of the firm’s extensive experience in this area of law, our construction attorneys have been consulted and retained by other attorneys to act as co-counsel in particularly large or complex construction defect cases.  Due to its size and the number of qualified attorneys in its construction defect practice, the firm is able to lend expert assistance when small firms or single attorneys find themselves overwhelmed by defense tactics.  Our construction defect attorneys also provide an aggressive defense for developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects and other design professionals in claims for negligent or intentional failure to meet strict construction standards.  We have a clear understanding of the statutes governing construction defect claims and work diligently to protect our clients from illegitimate claims and to preserve our clients’ rights to make repairs outside the litigation process.  The firm is recognized as a leader in the pre-litigation evaluation and defense of mold-related injury claims on behalf of construction professionals and commercial property owners.
