Skilled Construction Law Representation in New York Since 1990

At the Law Offices of Michael P. Berkley, P.C., we understand that the success of any construction project relies, in large part, on a strong contractual foundation and skilled legal counsel to handle potential conflicts that may arise. Since 1990, we have been providing contractors, subcontractors, property owners, developers and design professionals honest legal advice and skillful representation aimed at minimizing the risks they face and protecting their best interests.

Handling All of Your Construction Law Needs

At our firm, we have been dedicated to the practice of construction law since 1990. Attorney Michael Berkley started out by representing contractors who were renovating restaurants and other small commercial buildings. Over time, our practice and knowledge of the industry has grown, and our client base currently includes developers, contractors and property owners involved in large-scale construction projects such as hotels, condominiums and large office buildings. We handle both union and non-union cases.

Unlike law firms that take a jack-of-all-trades approach to their practice areas, we focus on construction law. As a result, we are able to deliver to our clients the knowledgeable, skilled representation they need to find effective resolution to their legal problems. From nearly 20 years of practice, we know that solid, well-crafted contracts and competent legal counsel are the keys to achieving successful outcomes. From drafting and reviewing contracts to litigating construction disputes, such as those arising from breach of contract or damage to neighboring property during foundation work, count on us to provide the quality representation you require.

Providing Personal Attention to Every Client

As a smaller law firm, we take pride in offering an exceptional level of service and personal attention to each client. When you come to us for legal guidance, our attorney will personally handle your case. You will never be passed off to a legal assistant or less experienced associate. With so much at stake in a construction project, we understand that having a responsive lawyer on your side is important. We are committed to keeping you informed throughout the process.

Contact Our Firm Today

Call 888-512-5875 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced construction lawyer. Our phone is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For your convenience, evening and weekend appointments, as well as construction site visits, are available.

We have two locations to serve our clients. Our New York office is located in Garden City, near the Roosevelt Field Shopping Mall, and our New Jersey office, in Hackensack, is near the Bergen County Courthouse. We represent clients throughout all five boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island), Long Island and New Jersey.

We offer reasonable rates and accept MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese translation services are available.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
