Taubman Law


TAUBMAN LAW has extensive experience in negotiation and drafting all of the documentation needed for residential and commercial construction, as well as financing of construction. I represent owners, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. I help clients avoid disputes, but when they arise, I have the knowledge and skills to obtain the results clients seek.
