The Maryland construction law attorneys at Cowie & Mott  practice construction law throughout the State of Maryland and Washington, D.C. (District of Columbia). The law firm is known for resolving disputes involving the design and construction of buildings and other structures as well as assisting in the legal aspects of construction and development projects.

Maryland construction attorneys Nicholas D. Cowie and T. Allen Mott have over 50 years combined experience practicing construction law.  Nicholas D. Cowie established the “Construction Law” course at the University of Baltimore School of Law where he served as an adjunct professor of construction law. Most construction disputes we handle are resolved through mediation, without the need for drawn out litigation or trial. However, should trial become necessary, the lawyers at Cowie & Mott have the experience to handle your construction case. Mr. Cowie served as trial counsel in the case Milton Co. vs. Bentley Place Condominium in which a jury awarded $6.6 million against a builder for construction defects in addition to an award of  $500,000 in attorneys fees. More recently, Mr. Mott obtained a $5.6 million jury award in a construction defect case against a national builder.
