Construction Contracts & Litigation
Construction law is complex, involving detailed building plans, extensive local and state building codes, and numerous parties who work on the project, including builders, owners, general contractors and subcontractors.
Jesson & Rains has experience representing general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, and property owners in a variety of construction litigation matters in both state and federal courts. We can draft contracts and interpret insurance policies in order to prevent disputes before they arise. We can pursue a lien and/or collections on your behalf when money is owed to you.
Finally, the attorneys at Jesson & Rains are seasoned litigators. Kelly has tried numerous cases as a personal injury defense attorney, and Edward has years of experience representing construction companies and negotiating with insurance companies. If your insurance company is refusing to provide a defense, or if you have questions regarding your coverage, Jesson & Rains can help.
In the event a case managed by Jesson & Rains is appealed, the firm can continue to provide representation at the appellate level. Kelly Rains Jesson has experience handling cases before appellate courts and is a former judicial law clerk at the appellate level. She is an exceptional brief writer. If another firm handled your case and you seek different appellate counsel, Jesson & Rains may be available to handle the appeal. Give us a call. We represent individuals in Charlotte, Concord, and Gastonia, as well as other communities in Mecklenburg, Iredell, Union, Cabarrus, and Lincoln counties.
