Construction Law

Santa Barbara, California Construction Law Attorneys

The experienced trial lawyers of Michael P. Ring & Associates handle a wide variety of litigation matters. Within construction law, our work typically involves representing homebuyers whose newly constructed homes contain serious defects. However, with more than 50 years of experience in a wide variety of litigation, we can assist with any construction lawsuits, including those involving personal injury.

Inspections Don't Catch Every Construction Defect

While there is some comfort in building your own structure and being able to watch the contractors work, it is still no guarantee that the end product will be exactly as you had hoped. In any case, even the best inspections can miss some hidden construction defects or poor construction practices until something catastrophic occurs that requires you dig deep.

Clients come to our lawyers for assistance with all kinds of problems arising out of the purchase of property. Our familiarity with the home construction industry gives us the skill to address their concerns over such problems as

  • toxic mold
  • design defects and material deficiencies
  • subsurface deficiencies
  • code violations
  • unsafe structures caused by cutting corners
  • substandard workmanship or inexperienced general contractors
  • unskilled or overworked subcontractors who poorly supervise subcontracted work leading to
  • electrical and mechanical problems
  • plumbing leaks
  • pest infestation and
  • expansive soil conditions.

The high costs of real estate development in the tri-county area of Santa Barbara, San Louis Obispo and Ventura mean that construction defects can be especially costly. Our experienced, knowledgeable attorneys will fight hard to get you fully compensated for all defects in your valuable investment.
