From that side of the fence, he knows how typical insurance adjusters and builders view construction defect lawsuits, and the information that they need to put some money on the table to resolve your construction defect lawsuit. Most insurance adjusters want nothing more than to resolve a case so that they clear it off their desk and move on to something else.  However, it often takes time to get them to a point to pay a realistic value for your case. Most insurance adjusters are overworked and have too many cases assigned to them. Moreover, they are not taking the your case personally or giving it the attention that it truly needs because they are not living with the defective construction in their own house. J. Scott Sweeney can help you walk the line in resolving the case with builders or insurance adjusters because this lawyer has been there many times before -- from both sides of the fence.
