Diverse Legal Experience

Hacker Murphy represents businesses and municipalities seeking remedy for negligent construction or breach of contract. We have sued builders, architects and design professionals for catastrophic failure, water intrusion and other construction defects from incompetent design or shoddy building methods, or for unreasonable project delays and cost overruns.

We also represent construction contracting firms in suing for progress payments, non-payment or contractor termination, including subcontractor claims against general contractors. We file and perfect mechanic’s liens, up to and including foreclosure if necessary.

Our attorneys also handle zoning and land use litigation in development and construction, representing builders, owners or local governmental bodies.

Serving clients throughout New York State, from Albany’s Capital District region, Hacker Murphy provides both arbitration and litigation of these conflicts.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
