The complex nature of construction disputes requires specialized knowledge and an understanding of the construction process. ScottHulse construction attorneys work collaboratively with clients at the outset of a dispute to help the client position itself to achieve the best possible outcome.

Construction disputes can be disruptive and costly. For this reason, ScottHulse construction lawyers work with clients to resolve disputes as quickly and efficiently as possible. The Firm’s experience and knowledge can often help bring about an early and successful settlement and thereby avoid potentially contentious and costly litigation.

Despite all risk management and early resolution efforts, construction disputes are often complex, and sometimes settlement may not be possible or appropriate. In such cases, it may be necessary to proceed to arbitration or trial. ScottHulse’s experienced construction litigation attorneys vigorously and aggressively use our experience, knowledge, and skills, to achieve the best possible results for our clients. Our construction litigation and trial experience is extensive and we have tried numerous complex cases to verdict. Because our lawyers bring highly developed trial skills and in-depth knowledge of the construction industry to bear on any litigation matter, clients turn to ScottHulse when the stakes are high.

With offices in El Paso and Las Cruces, New Mexico, as well as the ability to provide licensed legal representation in Mexico, ScottHulse and its construction lawyers are well-positioned to assist clients with construction-related matters in the Texas, Mexico, and New Mexico Borderplex region.

''When you're in the middle of a dispute of any sort, it's difficult to see the big picture, including both the factors involved and the eventual consequences of whatever action you take. Our role is to help the client avoid tunnel-vision and develop creative and comprehensive solutions to disputes.''
