Hire A Construction Law Firm With Industry Experience

If you are in a legal conflict that involves a construction agreement or construction project, you need an attorney with over 25 years of experience in construction. Attorneys Chris Engels and Sean Janzen, partners in Engels-Janzen, represent residential and commercial owners in construction litigation. We can also provide representation to engineers, contractors, architects and construction managers.

Understanding Legal Issues From A Business Viewpoint

We pride ourselves on understanding legal issues from the business point of view and work with our clients to understand specific project goals. Chris owned his general contracting business for more than 25 years and understands all phases of the construction industry. Our attorneys are well versed in construction law and civil litigation.

Our firm can help you with issues that include:

  • Contract reviews
  • Price negotiations: before and after agreements
  • Fraud detection
  • Contractor checks
  • Material and process verification

Our unique perspective and knowledge come from our many years of handling legal matters related to construction nationally and particularly in the California area.

“I thought that contractors had been ripping me off for years, so I hired Christopher Engels to review my current and upcoming projects. Mr. Engels took a hands-on approach, conducted a site visit, and provided a very detailed and professional review of what I was contracted for, what was actually installed, and how much I was losing.

“Mr. Engels saved me $11,000 on my one deck project alone and thousands of dollars on others. I never perform a construction project without his review – he’s worth his weight in gold.”

– Mary Anne Walsh, Newport Beach
