Our Experience + Our Solutions = Your Success
If your prospective attorney cannot readily name multiple, large-stakes cases he or she has tried, look elsewhere.
Depth of legal knowledge also matters. Ask your prospective attorney to list his or her appellate cases. Nothing like researching, drafting and oral argument of appellate briefs will identify the depth of legal knowledge you should expect.
Flexibility and creativity may not be the first elements of legal strategy that come to mind. In the end, they can make the difference between success and failure.
A modicum of foresight by our trained eyes can eliminate expensive headaches down the road. Don't be lulled into hiring solely a transactional lawyer. When you find yourself in a legal dispute, our focus will be extracting you as promptly and economically as possible.
The best way to keep out of court, or to get out once you're in, is to hire attorneys with the reputation for trying cases when faced with the unreasonable obstinance of an opponent.
Breadth of Experience
Few realize just how broad Construction and Business Law are!
U.S. Air Force JSTARS
An electronics defense contractor retained Kevin to remedy a wrongful termination of a contract to develop “black-box” test equipment for the U.S. Air Force Joint Surveillance & Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) aircraft. Kevin successfully tried the case in federal district court. After entry of a judgment in the client’s favor, the opponent appealed. After Kevin’s oral argument, the Federal 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, GA affirmed the judgment in favor of the client.
Orange County, FL Courthouse
Kevin represented the constructor of an ultra-high strength (14,000 psi) concrete, secure courthouse. The design imposed on the contractor proved un-constructible in many aspects due to inadequate considerations of chemical and physical properties unique to high-strength concrete.
FiberOptics Telecom: Bogota, Colombia
An international telecommunications company hired Kevin in a court dispute over the construction of a city-wide fiber optics telecom system in Bogota, Colombia. The case implicated unique aspects of foreign contracts, politics and sensitivities.
Fire Suppression System Malfunction
A mechanical engineer, represented by Kevin, designed a digitally-controlled fire alarm and fire suppression system for a state-of-the-art retrofit and maintenance hangar of a major U.S. commercial airline. “Ghosts” in the infrared, temperature, fume and pressure detectors were causing false alarms, including a disastrous discharge of 15 feet of fire suppressant foam into the hangar occupied by a commercial passenger airliner. The parties contested liability for the costs necessitated in re-building the jet engines and brake systems.
Uranium Tailings Remediation (UMTRA)
In a dispute against the U.S. Department of Energy, Kevin represented a contractor responsible for excavating and entombing radioactive tailings from uranium mines in the remote western United States. The project was a super-fund clean-up under the Uranium Mill Tailings Remediation Act. After a two week trial, a jury found Kevin's client had been wrongfully terminated and awarded $6m.
Australian Air Force, Wedgetail
Kevin represented an electronics defense contractor developing radio transceivers for the Australian Air Force Airborne Warning & Control System (AWACS Wedgetail). A dispute arose when the U.S. Air Force Electronic Systems Division contract incorporated U.S. National Security Agency encryption program requirements. When the NSA encryption protocols changed, greatly increasing the scope of work, the AFESD refused to recognize the NSA change as a “contract change” under the FAR. The case was settled successfully while pending in the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals.
Condominium Tunnel Forming Failure
Kevin represented a condominium developer after the contractor, a purported tunnel forming "expert," failed to appreciate the complexities and supply problems in a concrete tunnel-forming operation. The project finished a year late. After months of arbitration, $2m was awarded to Kevin's client. The award was converted to a formal judgment, which Kevin successfully defended on appeal.
