CONSTRUCTION LAW


At the Law Offices of Dana F. Strout, P.A., we have more than 41 years of comprehensive construction law experience providing legal representation to clients at every stage of the construction process, from bidding and contract drafting to construction disputes, liens, final payment, litigation and arbitration. Throughout my career, a substantial portion of my practice has involved representing owners, developers, general contractors, sub-contractors and bonding companies in the resolution of construction disputes. I have successfully handled the prosecution and defense of multi-million dollar claims in both bench and jury trials as well as complex AAA arbitrations in all phases of construction litigation. These cases include the foreclosure of mechanic liens, performance and payment bond litigation, CPM scheduling, claims presentation, school construction, masonry disputes, pipeline construction, architectural malpractice and delay claims.

Unlike law firms that dabble in many practice areas, we have focused on and developed complete competency in construction law — it has been and remains the focus of our practice since 1975. We provide dedicated, knowledgeable representation to meet our clients’ needs and are ready to help you at any stage of your project, from drafting and negotiating contracts to providing aggressive representation in disputes involving breach of contract. It is our commitment to completely understand your scenario and find an effective and efficient solution to your construction law matter.

Specialty areas of my construction law practice include:

  • Construction Contract Drafting and Review
  • Resolving Construction Disputes through mediation, litigation and AAA Arbitration
  • Mechanic's Liens: Getting Paid and Lien Removal
  • Construction Defects
  • Construction Claims
  • Change Order Disputes
