McGrath Law Firm's Mission is to give you the home you were promised
when you bought or built your house.

For over 15 years we have represented thousands of homeowners and families whose homes are damaged from construction defects and shoddy workmanship. We hold builders responsible for shortcuts taken during construction and the resulting damage and lost property value. We protect the rights of families and homeowners from unscrupulous builders, real estate agents, home inspectors and pest control companies every day. Even though many have called and asked, McGrath Law Firm will never defend a bad builder.

Buying a new home should give a homeowner peace of mind and assurance for years to come. Your home is supposed to be where you escape from the challenges of the day, not where problems are waiting for you. Buyers have every right to expect an investment in a new home guarantees them it is defect free.

While no new home is completely perfect, serious construction defects occur every day. Unfortunately, the majority of new homes sold today suffer from hidden or latent defects and building code violations that can't be seen after the house is complete - even by a trained inspector. We sincerely hope you purchased a defect-free house, but if your home has leaks, cracks, sagging or mold, contact McGrath Law Firm. We have successfully compelled hundreds of builders to pay for repairs, lost property values and the heartache they have caused for the families they profited from. The McGrath Law Firm has also forced builders to buy back dozens of the most severely defective homes.
