To be honest you don’t just need an attorney. You need someone who knows construction, and someone who knows the law. There are many pitfalls to buying a new home and if you don’t stay on top of your builder, you may find yourself paying more than you should for your new home.

Why not hire a construction manager instead of an attorney?

A construction manager is great, they know construction. Mr. Chance has the best of both worlds to offer you. Mr. Chance spent time as a laborer, a foreman, an estimator, and a Project Manager for a prominent commercial subcontractor in the DC Metro area. This experience leaves him uniquely qualified to walk you through the process.
