About the Author


My name is Lee Brumitt, and I have been practicing law for more than 30 years. I am a rarity, having spent all my years of practice with one firm, Dysart Taylor Cotter McMonigle & Montemore, P.C. Early on I formed relationships with a number of contractors and trades. Construction law became a substantial part of my practice. It is now my passion. Whether it is negotiation of fair contract language, resolving issues in the field, or assuring that contractors receive compensation for their hard work, my objective in every case is to make sure my client is treated fairly.

The goal of this blog is to share my experiences and lessons learned in the construction trenches. There are situations that are played out repeatedly in the tug of war of construction projects. I have caught myself saying on several occasions, “here’s another case where…”.

I would like contractors to become more educated regarding the legal aspects of their craft. Critical project issues are usually driven by contract language and state and federal legislation. Those issues may involve retainage, surety bonds, indemnity issues, mechanic’s liens, payment conditions, terminations, delays, etc. Thus, contractors should know their rights and the risks involved.
