Construction Disputes and Defects Claims

At the Irvine, California law firm of Tomassian, Inouye & Grigorian LLP, we aggressively represent clients who have discovered construction defects in their homes or buildings, including:

  • Homeowners
  • Condominium associations
  • Commercial building owners


The right lawyer can make a big difference

Because of the wide variety of language in builder insurance policies, and complex laws governing how you pursue a construction defect claim, it is imperative that you retain experienced counsel from the moment you believe you have a problem or potential claim.

Every step you take toward seeking a remedy requires careful consideration of all the issues and potential consequences. Because no two cases are the same, you need and deserve an experienced firm that will carefully analyze your situation and explore every potential avenue of recovery.

We work with construction experts and engineers to determine the sources and causes of defects and industry standards for the most cost-effective means of repair.
