Jason regularly appears in federal and state court on behalf of design-build firms, general contractors, architects, engineers, specialty contractors, property management companies, real estate owners, and lenders.

Cyri concentrates her practice in the areas of real estate and construction litigation. She has represented financial institutions, contractors, suppliers, owners, commercial carriers, railroads, and other public and private entities in a variety of real estate and construction litigation matters.
