We can often identify the presence of construction defects (especially those in cracked brick veneer) with a few simple checks around your home. You have every right to a home that is free of major construction defects.

How We Get Paid:

McGrath Law Firm handles almost all construction defect cases on a contingency basis, which means we take a percentage of the gross recovery as our compensation. Unless our firm recovers for you, you owe us nothing. McGrath Law Firm will advance the costs including expert testimonial or inspection costs. There are no upfront costs to our clients.
