Prince George’s County And Waldorf
Construction Defects Lawyer

With more than 35 years of experience, Ralph Powers can knowledgeably address all construction-related matters, including:
Construction contracts — negotiation, review, change orders, bonding and sureties

  • Contract enforcement — fraud, nonperformance or undue delays
  • Construction defects — structural defects, substandard workmanship
  • Mechanic’s liens — nonpayment claims against the owner or general contractor

Construction disputes can be complex and tense. For property owners, a lien or threatened foreclosure is stressful and scary, and getting shoddy construction amended can be frustrating. For construction companies and tradesmen, timely payment is critical to paying the bills and continuing current or future jobs. Before long, all parties are suing each other in cross-claims and counterclaims.
Ralph Powers draws on three decades of legal knowledge and industry insights to help parties resolve these conflicts as fairly and efficiently as possible. Some situations are amenable to mediation or a negotiated solution, especially in early stages. Mr. Powers is also prepared to file liens or lawsuits and follow through all the way to trial if necessary to protect your interests or force the other party to adhere to the contract.

A Note About Maryland Home Improvement Law:
The contractor you select to make repairs or improvements to your home can have a significant impact on the validity of the contract itself. By using a licensed contractor, you are financially protected from losses up to $10,000 that occur due to unsafe or unacceptable workmanship. If you employ an unlicensed contractor, however, you may have difficulty recouping your losses if the work performed is substandard.
