New Jersey Construction Law Attorney

Florham Park firm builds solutions
The Law Offices of Sheryl Mintz Goski, P.A. understands the construction business. With more than 25 years of experience practicing construction law in New Jersey, construction attorney Sheryl Mintz Goski can help you build solutions to the problems affecting your residential, commercial, industrial or public development projects.

My firm handles construction disputes for a wide variety of clients, including contractors, property owners, developers, architects, engineers and construction companies. I advocate for my clients’ interests in court, arbitration and administrative agency hearings and am dedicated to providing clients with the best possible results.   As an AAA Construction Arbitrator and Mediator, I am familiar with all forms of construction alternative dispute resolution.

Handling construction disputes for more than 25 years
I help clients avoid and resolve construction disputes in the following areas:

  • Architectural and engineering errors
  • Contract disputes
  • Collections and payment disputes
  • Insurance coverage
  • Material suppliers’ rights
  • Mechanic’s liens

Architectural and engineering conflicts
Errors and omissions in site plans can severely affect the progress of your project. I have extensive experience handling these disputes from every angle and regularly protect the interests of contractors, owners, architects and engineers when conflicts of this nature arise.

Contract disputes

Construction projects often require the signing of multiple contracts to secure access to labor and materials. Breach of any of these contracts can cause havoc on your worksite. I help you get the compensation and services you need to finish your project on time. I also assist with drafting and review of contracts to protect your interests in the future.

Collections and payment disputes
My firm handles all situations involving payment disputes, including:

  • Bid contests, mistakes and protests
  • Collections
  • Non-payment for extra work
  • Surety bond claims
  • Stop notices
  • Work stoppages and delays
  • Writs of attachment

I expect the unexpected and I work to get you the relief you are looking for. I also represent property developers and owners, helping them fight unjustified claims brought against them.

Insurance coverage
Insurance companies often cause serious problems during the construction process. If an insurance company has denied or disclaimed your coverage, I can help you get the protection you need to move forward.  

Material suppliers’ rights
Suppliers have many of the same rights as contractors, and they deserve the relief that they are entitled to. I help suppliers receive the compensation they deserve by enforcing personal guarantees made by property developers and assist in filing liens, stop notices and writs of attachment on their behalf.

Mechanic’s liens
I help contractors and material suppliers draft, serve, file and enforce mechanic’s liens against property developers and owners to ensure payment for services rendered. I also represent contractors, developers and owners, helping them to vacate improper or exaggerated liens brought against them.
