Jeffrey A. Brauer focuses his practice on litigation, construction law, and creditors’ rights matters. Jeff regularly handles complex financial, engineering, and technical disputes in state and federal trial courts and arbitrations.

Jeff has represented owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and other construction professionals on construction matters for his entire career. Jeff works with clients at every stage of construction, bringing his experience to help clients avoid litigation, minimize risk, and resolve disputes early whenever possible.
