Thank You for the Super Lawyers Nod

2012 Virginia Super Lawyers Rising StarsI am always appreciative and humbled to join the great lawyers who populate lists such as Legal Elite and Super Lawyers. Needless to say I am even more thankful when I get elected to a great list like the Virginia Super Lawyers this year in 2017, this time in the Construction Litigation category.

So without further ado, thank you to my peers and those on the panel at Virginia Super Lawyers for the great honor. I feel quite proud to be part of the 5% of Virginia attorneys that made this list for 2017.

The full lists of Virginia Super Lawyers will appear in the May edition of Richmond Magazine. Please check it out.

If you want to see the lists before then, a digital version of the Virginia Super Lawyers magazine is available here.

Thanks again to all of you who participated in my nomination and election.

As always, I welcome your comments below. Please subscribe to keep up with this and other Construction Law Musings.

Republished by Blog Post PromoterI have discussed my views on mandatory mediation in construction contracts at other places here at Musings and also discussed how the contract is king here in Virginia. A recent Charlottesville, Virginia Circuit Court case combined these two concepts to allow a subcontractor to proceed straight to…

Subcontractors Must be Careful Providing Bonds when General Contractor Does Not

After I wrote the title to this post, I thought, “Well, that says it all, doesn’t it?” I also considered the fact that for those that read this construction law blog on a regular basis, I am likely stating the obvious. I then thought about the fact that there can be confusion regarding the purpose…
