Whether your issue involves an Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZROC) complaint, mechanics lien, construction or renovation delay claim, construction defect, or general contract dispute, the attorneys at Stead & Associates, PLLC are ready to address and resolve them. Alternatively, we are ready to review your legal agreements and consult your business prior to a dispute arising.
Contract Review & Drafting
Contractors regularly rely on construction and/or renovation contracts to outline the relationship they have with suppliers, customers, and partners. It is imperative that your contract clearly sets out each party’s responsibilities and expectations. If the terms of the contract are not clearly stated, serious and costly disputes could arise.
At Stead & Associates, PLLC, our attorneys will tailor our services to your needs and take as large or small a role in the drafting of your contract as you may require. If you have a question about an existing contract, we’re happy to provide you with our professional advice. We will also draft commercial and residential contracts upon request and facilitate negotiations between parties in an effort to reach an amicable compromise that is satisfactory to all parties involved.

- Guidance and litigation pertinent to construction and renovation disputes;
