From its office in Littleton, Miller & Law, P.C. is well-situated to assist contractors, subcontractors, materialsmen, owners, and others in matters arising from private residential and commercial construction projects and Colorado State and Federal public works of all sizes. In order to provide our clients with the best possible services, we stay up-to-date on changing laws by maintaining a membership with the Associated General Contractors and we educate construction groups and owners on the effects of construction laws in their day-to-day business transactions.
Private Construction Projects
Miller & Law, P.C. assists clients in all types of residential and commercial construction matters. We provide comprehensive contract services, including carefully reviewing proposed contracts to ensure that our clients' interests are thoroughly protected. In the event that a contract is breached or terminated, we can assist the clients in collecting funds owed to them through the use of bond claims and by attaching or foreclosing on mechanics' liens. In addition, the firm has substantial experience drafting notices of disburser to require owners, lenders, or other parties to make disbursements on a project to pay subcontractors and materialsmen directly, or to withhold sufficient funds to cover the claim in the event of a dispute.
Federal Public Works
Construction contracts entered into with the federal government are governed by distinct laws and must be drafted according to a uniform contract format whenever practicable. The process can be more complex than entering into private construction contracts, but an experienced attorney can help expedite the process by carefully negotiating, reviewing and drafting contract terms.
Not only do our attorneys assist with drafting and reviewing federal construction contracts, we also offer comprehensive services in regard to bonds claims. In anticipation of disputes, the Miller Act requires contractors to post performance and payment bonds on any construction contract exceeding $100,000 for use in the event the contract is terminated and damages are assessed against them. A performance bond secures performance of a contract by a contractor, whereas a payment bond ensures that all laborers and suppliers are paid for their work under the contract. Miller & Law, P.C. can assist clients with surety negotiations, contract review and assessment, and any related litigation matters involving such bond claims and disputes.
State Public Works
Our attorneys assist in all aspects of negotiating, reviewing, and drafting state public works contracts and in negotiating bond claims when contracts have been breached or terminated. In addition, our firm is highly experienced in obtaining Verified Statements of Claims, which are required to make a bond claim against the state or county for construction costs incurred in state public works projects.
