The Stayton Law Group focuses on the construction industry. In addition to contract drafting, we resolve contract disputes, liens, construction defects, payment issues, delay claims, bonds, indemnity claims, labor issues, insurance coverage, licensing complaints, and professional negligence.  We represent homeowners and owners of commercial projects, as well as contractors and subcontractors. Our first efforts are usually aimed at avoiding litigation by exploring opportunities for resolution through mediation or informal settlement. If litigation or arbitration become necessary, we have the experience and expertise in court and arbitration hearings to successfully represent our clients.
