My name is David Adelstein. I am a Florida board certified construction lawyer, partner at the law firm of Kirwin Norris, P.A., and practice construction law throughout Florida. I handle construction claims and disputes on vertical and horizontal federal projects, state public projects, and private projects in Florida and outside of Florida. I prosecute and defend claims in all forums (federal court, state court, board of contract appeals, and arbitration) for general contractors, subcontractors, developers, owners, sureties, and suppliers.
I handle a host of issues that touch any complicated construction project including, without limitation, delay claims, inefficiency and lost productivity claims, acceleration claims, differing site conditions claims, construction and design defect claims, property insurance and commercial general liability insurance claims, construction licensing issues, performance bond claims, contractor and subcontractor default claims, payment bond claims, lien claims, termination for cause and for convenience claims, OSHA issues, workers compensation issues, change order issues, requests for equitable adjustment, pass-through claims, bid protests, Davis Bacon and prevailing wage rate issues, and claims under the Contract Disputes Act.
Besides having extensive experience handling all types of construction claims and disputes, I also have extensive experience preparing and negotiating construction contracts dealing with various project delivery methods.
