Built On

 Prior to establishing Katz Law, I was an associate and then senior attorney in three boutique construction litigation firms, two in Maryland and one in the District.  Over those 13+ years, I was trained by some of the best construction litigators on the East Coast, learning best practices and “tools of the trade” in a wide variety of construction disputes.  Critically, I was taught the importance of claim methodology, substantiation and accounting processes in achieving negotiated – or, if necessary, litigated – successes.

For nearly two decades now, I have tenaciously put my skills to use helping hundreds of construction stakeholders successfully resolve their legal disputes, including through mechanic’s lien litigation, bond claims, arbitration, mediation, bid protests, and state and federal lawsuits.
