Tricon Enterprises Inc.

"For over 10 years, I've relied on Stephen for expert legal representation in the complex matters of liability that come with owning and operating a construction business. He and his team are knowledgeable, responsive and effective. In our most recent pursuit of payment from a difficult owner, Stephen remained a consummate professional and prevailed through the bureaucracy to achieve our goal."

Konkus Corp.

Our Company had retained Stephen to perform an on-site seminar at our location to educate our Managers on contract language. Stephen’s background and knowledge of construction and law was perfect for our non-legal minded managers to get a better understanding of these agreements, while keeping them fully engaged. He received high marks from everyone that attended, from managers at all levels. I highly recommend Stephen and his team for this and other services, as we will be sure to consult him in the future as the need arises.
