Meet Herb

Legal Practice

Construction: My practice focuses on construction law services, representing owners, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers and architects in transactional matters related to construction projects. This includes developing and negotiating contracts and service agreements that mitigate client risk and maximize client benefit. When construction disputes arise, I represent my clients before courts and arbitrators, and also assist them in pursuing their mechanic’s lien rights.


Mineral & Environmental: I focus on the oil, gas and coal industries, completing transactional work related to leases as well as developing and negotiating contracts. When disputes arise that cannot be resolved through mediation, I represent my clients before courts.


Real Estate: My practice focuses on representing government entities in economic development projects. These matters vary in complexity and sometimes involve property condemnation or utility relocation disputes. I also assist business clients with commercial leasing matters.

Looking Ahead

Technology such as computer aided design continues to drive significant change in the construction and engineering industries.


Technology also is driving change in the economic development world. The rollout of high speed internet accessibility in currently underserved markets will be an important contributor to economic development efforts in the future.
