Many times contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and business owners need legal representation to enforce mechanic’s liens, stop notices, payment bond claims, collection claims, or even contractor license bond claims. Others—including property owners, developers, and contractors—regularly need to defend improper claims for breaches of contracts, collections, labor claims, and delay damage claims.
Regardless of what side of a construction litigation claim you are on, contractors, subcontractors, owners, material suppliers, and developers need quality legal advice and representation by attorneys who know the California law in this technical field and that have the ability to perform the work for a reasonable fee. At David H. Ricks & Associates, we pride ourselves in knowing the law in the construction field and the fact that we can perform the required work in a manner that meets most reasonable budgets.

- Mechanic’s lien claims

Many of these construction-related problems can be resolved without litigation if timely action is taken. However, so often contractors wait too long to enforce their rights in an effort to accommodate certain demands placed upon them or on their time. When they finally realize they are not getting paid, the time has passed to exercise their rights through the use of a mechanic’s lien, stop notice or a bond claim. These time periods are often very short and vary in length.
