Skilled Legal Representation In Commercial And Residential Construction Defect Disputes

If you are a contractor, a construction defect has the potential to destroy your credibility. If you are a property owner, construction defects may affect the use of your property and even limit the value of your property.

I am Ellen Rothstein, a New York City attorney with more than 35 years of experience resolving commercial and residential construction disputes. Whether a client's issues relate to code violations, misleading contract terms or cost-cutting measures, I work hard to protect their financial interests.

Representing Protecting Property Owners

I am a seasoned litigator with experience handling construction litigation. I understand the potential ramifications commercial and residential property owners can encounter from negligent construction work. I am committed to protecting my clients' interests when their financial investment is in jeopardy. I have a strong background evaluating contract terms to identify parties at fault for causing construction defects, relating to, among other things:

  • Design defects
  • Sloppy workmanship
  • Plumbing problems
  • Structural concerns
  • Roofing problems
  • Electrical problems
  • Installation concerns
  • Drainage complications

I offer a comprehensive approach focused on identifying a way to achieve a prompt resolution. My detailed approach is invaluable in determining if a negotiated settlement or litigation would be in my clients' best interests.

Defending Contractors Facing Construction Defect Claims

Even the most experienced contractors can be accused of causing construction defects. If you have been under fire for allegedly causing a negligent design, an electrical problem or another defect, consult an experienced lawyer to protect your reputation. For years, I have applied my years of experience and legal skills to fight for the rights of contractors, subcontractors and builders, and to protect their reputations and financial interests.
