Construction Law

Construction law is a specific area of law that deals with all matters related to construction, engineering, and all related fields. Construction Law covers legal issues to do with contracts, negligence, guarantees and sureties, bonds and bonding, liens, security interests, construction claims, tendering, and consultancy contracts. Construction law does not only apply to construction companies and their employees. Financial institutes, surveyors, architects, builders, engineers, construction workers, and planners are all affected by and fall under the coverage of construction law.

Construction law is required because rarely do construction projects run smoothly and to plan. Every project will have to overcome at least one obstacle because of new discoveries made on site. Overcoming obstacles require employers to request additional work, cause delays, or increase the cost that was initially agreed upon.

Michael LeRoyThe most common claims made in construction law have to do with a contractor making a claim against an employer due to delays or change in the agreed-upon work, or professional consultants making claims against employers for non-payment or breach of copyright. Employers often make claims against the contractor for delay of work, defects in work or against professional consultants for failing to supervise or properly design work.

Gleason Initiative Foundation

Former NFL safety and special teams player, Steve Gleason, founded the Gleason Initiative Foundation, a foundation that is dedicated to assisting people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Three years after Gleason retired from the NFL, he was diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Gleason founded the foundation to help those who live with ALS do so comfortably until a cure is found.

Professionally, Steve Gleason is most well known for one of the most dramatic moments in New Orleans Saints history. In the first quarter of a game against the Atlanta Falcons on September 25, 2006, he blocked a punt, which was recovered in the Falcons’ end zone. The touchdown was the first scored by the Saints at home in 21 months since Hurricane Katrina had devastated New Orleans. The play signified a special moment not only for the team but also for the city. Gleason retired in 2008 and was diagnosed with ALS in 2011.

ALS is a condition that causes the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. The cause of ALS is not known for between 90% to 95% of cases, and about 5% to 10% of cases are inherited from parents’ genes. There is no cure for ALS at the moment although medication called riluzole sometimes extends life expectancy by about two to three months. Descriptions of ALS date back to 1824, and it became well known in the U.S. when the baseball player, Lou Gehrig was diagnosed.

Michael LeRoy is a lawyer in Florida. A family member of his lived with ALS, and he makes regular contributions, both donations and by volunteering his time, to the Gleason Initiative Foundation.

Importance of a good education

Imagining a life without schools and institutions of learning can seem next to impossible. Even when we loathe the idea of getting up early to prepare for school, or stay up late studying for exams, we still know that education is very important in our lives. While there have been numerous examples of uneducated people finding success in life, most of us will agree that having a good education has a myriad of benefits other than economic prosperity.

Keeping up with changes

The world we live changes with each passing day. The dynamic nature of technology best exemplifies the changes the world experiences, and it’s not something you want to leave you behind. Through education, you can understand the changes happening and apply them in your life.

Shun ignorance

The legal profession does not recognize ignorance as an explanation or defense strategy. In life, ignorance can prove dangerous especially when it comes to sensitive facets of life such as healthcare and security. Educated people are in a better position to know the most effective methods and strategies they can apply to keep them healthy and safe.

A safer, peaceful world

Education helps us to understand the difference between right and wrong. An educated person is very likely to be aware of the ramifications of doing something illegal, and is less likely to be pressured into doing something wrong, for example, breaking the law. Education provides you the insight into the rights you possess as a citizen in addition to the responsibilities that contribute to a safer world.

Michael LeRoy is a veteran civil liability defense lawyer dedicated to providing high-quality legal protection to his clients. His firm, located in Orlando, Tampa and Ft Lauderdale, Florida, is among the leading firms when it comes to defending against liability in a number of legal areas.

Assess Your Individual Skills

Setting up your own practice, as a lawyer, goes beyond just being good at law and being able to file motions before a judge. You have to be prepared for the challenges ahead and have a solid understanding of your strengths and weaknesses. You also have to understand how to run a business, since your services will be the business’ selling point. To succeed in a legal practice, you must have the business smarts and still be a good lawyer.

Michael LeRoy

Before you come up with the business plan and start looking for office space, take the time to understand what you are about to get into. Are you ready to take the risk? Have you given thought to what it will take to run the office (bookkeeping, marketing, budgeting) all while growing as a lawyer? Do you possess the self-starter skills required to manage competing demands and meet deadlines?

These are just some of the questions you will have to answer. Thankfully, your personal attributes will direct you into the right kind of setup. Also, give thought to the type of environment you want to work in. Are you comfortable working on your own, or would you benefit from having an assistant?

In conclusion, it helps to be realistic about your abilities. It’s not enough to simply know law and have the desire to help others. To run a successful law office, you require good business skills and the ability to sustain progress on a daily basis.
