I am a Florida board certified construction lawyer at the law firm of Kirwin Norris, P.A. I have represented contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, developers, associations, and owners in a myriad of construction matters including, without limitation, construction / design defect claims, schedule-based claims (including inefficiency, lost productivity, and acceleration claims), bid protests, payment disputes, lien and bond claims, liability and property insurance issues, and a host of other issues that affect the construction industry. I have prepared and negotiated construction contracts for clients utilizing AIA and AGC industry form documents, as well as contracts that are not based on an industry form document. Through representing all players in the construction industry, from negotiating contracts to litigating various issues, I have developed a diverse background and understanding of the many risks and issues that are involved in a construction project.
