Are you in the middle of a construction dispute in Orange County? Here are just a few examples of our construction litigation successes:
LLC Receives Sizable Settlement after Deposition of Defendant
Lester, Cantrell & Kraus, LLP’s Orange County construction lawyers handled a complex construction dispute between several members of a limited liability company over the construction of a real estate development. The lawsuit involved claims of breach of fiduciary duty and self-dealing. The development was valued at several million dollars. Our client received a sizable settlement just days after the deposition of the main defendant.
International Aerospace Contractor Dismissed During Trial
We defended an international aerospace contractor in a construction dispute concerning significant repairs made to a C-130 aircraft. The plaintiff was a subcontractor to our client and claimed they were owed nearly a million dollars for work performed on the aircraft. On the first day of trial, construction attorney David Cantrell cross-examined two of plaintiff’s key employees. Immediately after the examination, the plaintiff agreed to dismiss the entire case without compensation.
Contractor Receives 6-Figure Verdict Against Southland City
Lester, Cantrell & Kraus, LLP represented a contractor who had built a park in a Southland city. During construction, the municipality that owned the park claimed the contractor had failed to adequately complete the work, and that the contractor had caused the project to not be completed timely. At trial, the jury rejected all of the municipality’s claims, and awarded our client a six-figure verdict. Subsequent to the verdict, the municipality paid our client in full.
