Construction

Texas Defense Attorneys for the Construction Industry

The lawyers of Fletcher Farley represent contractors of all sizes and types. We are proud of our experience ranging from defending multinational general contractors on commercial projects all the way to defending mom and pop subcontractors on residential projects. Over the years we have seen just about everything that can go wrong on a construction site. From crane collapses to leaking curtain walls, accidents and errors do occasionally happen with even the best of contractors. When you do have an accident or when there is a claim of deficiency in your work, Fletcher Farley has the expertise to shepherd you through the process.
