Protecting Your Business Interests In Commercial Construction

A high-rise building, a large residential project or other commercial property is a huge investment often involving many different parties with multiple interests. When a problem arises with construction, whether it be during the project or after completion, much is at stake. Time is of the essence, but a resulting legal claim also is incredibly complex, which can lead to lengthy litigation.

When construction defects threaten business interests involved in commercial properties, investors and owners need a legal team that places the company's goals at the forefront. At Castro & Associates, our attorneys thrive on digging into complicated cases where our experience can be particularly helpful. Lead by founding attorney Joel Castro, a pioneer in construction litigation, our firm brings more than 40 years of experience to the table in Los Angeles and throughout California. For our clients, that means highly efficient and effective representation leading to successful results. Joel Castro has been awarded the coveted Flaig Award as "Outstanding Construction Attorney" by the Los Angeles County Bar Association for his outstanding 40 years of construction practice. This award was presented by his peers in the construction industry.

"We selected Joel Castro and his law firm to represent us in one of our largest and most complex construction defect matters to date. The claim related to a multiresidential project consisting of 12 freestanding units containing 666 separate living units owned by investors whose assets we manage. Joel Castro was successful in mediating a settlement in excess of 12 million. We were pleased with our ability, through the service of Joel Castro, to avoid protracted and costly litigation. Throughout the matter, his legal services were tailored to our objectives. He was very effective in a case involving more than 40 general and subcontractors. Through his work and efficiency, we were able to maintain project cost budgeting consistent with our business objectives as a result of the successful handling of this case. We strongly recommend attorney Castro and his firm in any matter involving construction defects and complex construction disputes
