At the Law Offices of James G. Schwartz, we apply the same principles of planning and forecasting to construction law as in all other areas of our practice. The initial creation of equitable, legally sound relationships and documentation is the best method to avoid costly delays, disputes, litigation and distractions in construction projects.

Founding attorney Jim Schwartz brings more than 30 years of experience in business law and civil litigation. He understands the lingo and dynamics of the construction industry, the key components of construction contracts, and the need for timely, cost-effective solutions when conflicts threaten completion of the project or the transaction.
