Terms

Contracts I

A client said to me after trial, in which she had prevailed on the majority, but not all of the issues: “If only I had taken the time at the beginning to write out what I understood would happen and had the other party sign, we would have had a better chance of having the judge see that last point our way. It didn’t occur to me at the beginning that we could have had such a different understanding of what was to happen (or what was included).”

Mechanics Liens

A mechanic’s lien is established and governed by Virginia statutes. They protect contractors and subcontractors who have not been paid for their services and provide specific steps for contractors and subcontractors to file a lien against the real estate they added value to.
