I am an AIA member and hold an International Code Council (ICC) National B Contractors license. Architecture and construction are complex and intricate processes and determining the causes of construction problems and failures and the parties responsible for them is usually no less so. Having practiced as both an architect and general contractor I understand both sides of the coin - not in an ivory tower sense but in a boots on the ground sense. I have designed, constructed and developed multi-million dollar projects, with responsibility for budgets, timeframes, details, subcontractor care, and jobsite safety. As an expert, I efficiently and comprehensively assess the issues in dispute and provide counsel a thorough analysis and understanding of the problems, responsible parties, cost to repair, and design solutions, as requested and required. My expert consulting experience varies from simple money issues to multi-party complex disputes. I have completed cases for counsel working on behalf of architects, general contractors, subcontractors, and real estate developers in Colorado, Maryland, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Missouri. Nationwide consulting available.
