  • Construction contract disputes
  • Construction defect claims
  • An assortment of personal injury, products liability and property damage claims, which happen to result from the construction defects in both residential and commercial settings

WFZ has represented general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals on residential and commercial properties of all types. Our past construction and design issues are diverse and includes:

  • Soils
  • Site preparation
  • Framing
  • Roofing
  • Stucco
  • Concrete
  • Flooring
  • Plumbing
  • Water intrusion
  • Mold

Our years of practice and experience has allowed us to form strong relationships with many of the premier experts/consultants to draw upon as needed.

WFZ strives to obtain the best resolution possible in every matter. If that means an early resolution, we will do our best to achieve this result by simultaneously minimizing defense costs and any potential indemnity exposure, if applicable. In matters that will require significant litigation, we have the experience to efficiently identify the threshold/key issues, potentially responsible parties, and necessary experts that will be needed to prove our case. In these instances, we also make every effort to minimize defense costs without compromising our efforts to prepare the matter for trial.

WFZ is equally experienced in each of the following:

  • Mediation
  • Judicial Settlement Conference
  • Arbitration
  • Trial
  • Special Master
