Our certifications as Construction Lawyers allows us to advertise as specialists with expertise in matters relating to the design and construction of improvements on private and public projects. This includes disputes over compliance with contract specifications and quality of workmanship. We also deal with claims of construction defects. Some of those defects are structural. Others result in poor indoor air quality or sick building syndrome. These claims often involve the presence of moisture, mildew, or mold, especially in materials such as stucco. In any event, they need to be corrected, and that means someone must pay for the repairs.
Construction law also includes:
- Contract negotiation, preparation, bidding, award, and administration
- Appearing in governmental hearings
- Oversight and document review
- Construction scheduling analysis and delay claims
- Lending and insurance
- Construction licensing
- Analysis and litigation of problems arising out of the Florida Construction Lien Law, § 255.05, Florida Statutes, and the federal Miller Act, 40 U.S.C.S. §§ 3131-3134
In order to head off construction problems before they arise, or to resolve problems that could not be avoided, call our construction law specialists.
When people hear the word malpractice, they usually think of doctors and medical professionals. However, all professionals are held to the standard of an expert in their profession. This includes:
- Insurance agents
- Real estates brokers
At Michael C. Sasso, P.A., we are familiar with the standards expected of all of these professionals. The failure of any professional to exercise the degree of skill and care reasonably expected of a person licensed to practice that profession may have costly consequences to clients. Whether you are a professional or a person who has relied on the expertise of such a professional, we can help you determine whether malpractice has occurred and then represent your interests in settlement or legal proceedings. Contact our office to discuss your claim.

Large business transactions rarely take place without some kind of insurance. Frequently, many types of insurance are required in a single deal, such as:
- Commercial general liability (CGL) insurance
- Surety (or fidelity or performance) bonds
- Fire (or property or casualty) insurance
- Title insurance
Insurance claims may be made by the insured party (first-party claims) or by someone for whose benefit or protection the insurance policy was purchased (third-party claims or beneficiaries).
The lawyers of Michael C. Sasso, P.A. have represented insurance companies and their insured customers against third-parties, as well as first-party and third-party claimants. The best lawyers know both sides of the issues they are handling. Put our expert lawyers to work for you. Call us to discuss your insurance problem today.
The law is not perfect. Neither are judges. When a judge makes a mistake, the lawyers of Michael C. Sasso, P.A. can take your case to the next step. Some of our cases have resulted in precedent-setting published decisions by appellate courts in Florida. For example, in Olson Electric Co. v. Winter Park Redevelopment Agency, 987 So. 2d 178 (Fla. 5th DCA 2008), our attorneys succeeded in convincing the appellate court to reverse a trial court order for arbitration because the other party had waived its right to arbitrate in a case involving foreclosure of a construction lien and breach of contract. Whether a trial court’s error is a matter of substantive law or judicial procedure, our attorneys are equipped to handle your case as far as necessary to achieve a just result.
