The law office of attorney Peter Mavrick has represented construction sub-contractors to recover payments for services and materials rendered. Some sub-contractors have actually had to close their businesses because they got so deep into non-payments from the general contractors. While waiting for payments that never arrive, the sub-contractor has to pay its workers, its office, phones, insurance, taxes, and pay for materials for the construction contract. The bigger the sub-contractor’s commitment to the construction project, the more devastating non-payment becomes to the sub-contractor’s business.
