California attorney builds solutions
With more than 35 years of experience practicing construction law in California, attorney Gerald T. Yoshida can help you build solutions to the problems affecting your residential, commercial, industrial or public development projects.

He handles construction disputes for a wide variety of clients, including contractors, property owners, developers, architects, engineers and construction companies. His experienced team of construction attorneys advocates for our clients’ interests in court, advocates in arbitration and administrative agency hearings, and is dedicated to providing clients with the best possible results.

Handling construction disputes for more than 35 years
Attorney Yoshida helps clients avoid and resolve construction disputes in the following areas:

  • Architectural and engineering errors
  • Collections and payment disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Insurance coverage
  • Material suppliers’ rights
  • Mechanics’ liens

Architectural and engineering errors
Errors and omissions in site plans can severely affect the progress of your project. Attorney Yoshida has extensive experience handling these disputes from every angle, and he regularly protects the interests of contractors, owners, architects and engineers when such conflicts arise.

Collections and payment disputes
Attorney Yoshida’s firm handles all situations involving payment disputes, including:

  • Bid contests, mistakes and protests
  • Collections
  • Non-payment for extra work
  • Stop notices
  • Surety bond claims
  • Work stoppages and delays
  • Writs of attachment

Attorney Yoshida expects the unexpected. He works to get you the relief you are looking for. Also, he represents property developers and owners, helping them fight unjustified claims brought against them.

Contract disputes
Construction projects often require the signing of multiple contracts to secure access to labor and materials. Breach of any of these contracts can cause havoc on your worksite. Attorney Yoshida helps you get the compensation and services you need to finish your project on time. He can also assist with the drafting and review of contracts so as to protect your interests in the future.

Insurance coverage
Insurance companies often cause serious problems during the construction process. If an insurance company has denied or disclaimed your coverage, Attorney Yoshida can help you get the protection you need to move forward.

Material suppliers’ rights
Suppliers have many of the same rights as contractors, and they deserve the relief they are entitled to. Attorney Yoshida helps suppliers receive the compensation they deserve by enforcing personal guarantees made by property developers; and he helps in filing liens, stop notices and writs of attachment on their behalf.

Mechanics’ liens
Attorney Yoshida helps contractors and material suppliers draft, serve, file and enforce mechanics’ liens against property developers and owners to ensure payment for services rendered. Also, he represents contractors, developers and owners, helping them to vacate improper or exaggerated liens brought against them.
