Trusted Legal Guidance For All Parties Involved In Construction Projects

We know that the success of any construction project relies on a strong contractual foundation. Since 1990, we have been providing contractors, subcontractors, property owners, developers, design professionals and material suppliers forthright, practical legal advice and skillful representation aimed at minimizing their risks and protecting their best interests.

Construction Professionals Rely On The Law Offices Of Michael P. Berkley, P.C.

Lawyer Michael P. Berkley started out by representing contractors who were renovating restaurants and other small commercial buildings in 1990. Since then our practice and industry knowledge have grown. Our current client base includes developers, contractors, subcontractors, property owners, suppliers and design professionals involved in large-scale construction projects, including hotels, condominiums and large commercial office buildings.

We know that solid, well-crafted contracts and competent legal counsel combined with our experience and practical knowledge are the keys to achieving successful outcomes. We are able to orchestrate solutions in a variety of situations including:

  • Drafting and reviewing contracts
  • Negotiating resolutions to disputes outside of court
  • Litigating construction disputes when necessary, including breaches of contract, delays and damage to neighboring properties during foundation work
  • Defending clients when workers get injured

Because we know how much is at stake in construction work, we focus solely on construction law. Combined with our commitment to work directly with our clients, we believe we’re able to offer ideal counsel — knowledgeable, skilled representation that clients need to find effective resolutions to their legal problems.

We handle both union and nonunion cases and our phone is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For convenience, evening, weekend appointments and on-site visits are available.
