The Denton law firm of Jones & Associates is a passionate advocate for Texas individuals and families who need diligent legal help. We duly note on our website the firm’s “singular mission of holding those who harm our clients accountable to the fullest extent allowed by the law.”
One of our core practice areas is consumer protection. That is obviously a universe replete with many challenges and obstacles. Good-faith consumers are routinely defrauded or underserved by third parties they contract with or otherwise receive services from.
The construction realm is a prime example of that, specifically an outcome where a project -- say the new construction or remodeling of a home in the DFW metro area -- is marked by one or more material defects.
A builder can be responsible for that, obviously. So too can subcontractors, architects, equipment/material suppliers, engineers and other parties. Liability is often widely sourced and shared where construction defects are concerned.
Is there a remedy to combat it? Or is an aggrieved homeowner customarily left powerless in the wake of something like an improperly laid foundation, faulty wiring, plumbing mistakes or the use of inferior materials?
Under applicable Texas laws, and with timely and aggressive representation from proven legal counsel, an individual or family with construction defect-linked claims is actually empowered by taking forceful retaliatory action.
And certainly encouraged to do so. Good-faith contractual performance by a consumer must be responded to in reciprocal fashion by an individual or commercial entity that likewise executes an agreement.
Questions or concerns regarding any construction-tied issue can be directed to an experienced attorney who routinely assists valued clients in this singular area of the law.
