DAVE ERVIN handles a variety of construction litigation cases, representing general contractors, subcontractors, and owners.  Prior to becoming an attorney, Dave worked in the construction field for over twenty years and owned and operated a commercial contracting and development firm with an annual volume in excess of $15M.  He has held a Class A contractor's license since 2003.  Well versed in all aspects of design, development, planning, and construction, Dave understands the technical aspects of construction disputes and seeks to find creative solutions to legal disputes.  Using his construction knowledge and understanding, Dave was recently able to broker a practical solution to a construction dispute, which was successfully completed for a cost of less than 10% of the value of the impending lawsuit.


Dave has extensive management experience in the design and construction of schools, prisons, industrial buildings, aircraft hangars, retail and office complexes, single and multi-family housing and subdivisions, commercial condominiums and site/utility construction.


Dave is also fluent in both business and forensic accounting and works with contractors to implement cost monitoring and control measures, job cost systems, policies and procedures, and reporting standards to both maximize profitability and minimize risk.  Dave has extensive experience in corporate management, litigation, arbitration, mediation, negotiation, and workouts.  He believes that while disputes will always be present in the construction industry, many problems can be mitigated or avoided altogether through proper planning and procedures. Dave is of counsel to the firm and a member of our affiliated firm of the Wilmington Law Group.com in North Carolina.
