We Are by Your Side in Construction Projects

Construction law encompasses a wide range of legal issues in the building industry. It requires interactions with many professionals and public or private entities, such as financial institutions, contractors and subcontractors, surety companies, architects, engineers, surveyors, property owners, and insurance companies. A construction lawyer must be well versed in many different types of law, as construction cases can be very complex. At Worman & Sheffler, P. A., we have the legal experience to navigate tough construction challenges while maintaining the interests and integrity of our clients.

With decades of experience in Construction Law, our attorneys are well-positioned to provide our clients with reasoned counsel and strategic guidance designed to proactively resolve issues before they may arise.

We represent Contractors, Subcontractors, Materials Suppliers, Architects, and Engineers in all areas of the construction industry throughout the state of Florida.

Understanding Complex Florida Construction Law

Long before a project begins, a construction attorney may be interfacing with federal, state, and local municipalities regarding variances, licensing matters, permits, and approvals.
