More Than Five Decades Of Legal Experience In Residential And Construction Litigation

Aggressive And Effective Residential Construction Litigation

If a new home or property has a defect, the owner has the right to damages for the construction company’s poor job. In California, homeowners have up to 10 years to claim damages for latent defects. Owners may also be able to sue for damage to property caused by construction errors or a breach of contract.

My history of construction litigation allows me to assist with most property disputes. At the Law Office of Brian W. Newcomb, clients will have an attorney who has resolved California real estate issues for over four decades. My Menlo Park office is available for clients who want to protect themselves and their property.
