Derek Jarvis is a long time advocate for the construction community and construction contractors. Almost immediately after law school he was hired to represent construction contractors in multi-party construction defect cases.

It was through this experience that Derek realized that there was a void of attorneys who were helping construction contractors minimize their liability and their out of pocket expenses/ Derek made it his mission to master construction insurance law. Derek uses this knowledge of construction insurance law on daily bases to protect his construction contractor clients’ interests.
