On February 10, 2021, PalterLaw partner Nathanial Martinez and associate Joshua “Jay” Minton secured a favorable verdict on behalf of their client Four Corners Development, LLC against Alsal Construction, Inc. Four Corners is a subcontractor that worked on an assisted living facility in Mansfield, Texas under a $1.4M subcontract with the general contractor Alsal. Four Corners filed its lawsuit in 2019 against Alsal alleging that Alsal had failed to make full payment under a subcontract agreement between the parties. After a two-day bench trial conducted via Zoom before Judge Martin Hoffman, the Court found that Alsal had breached its contract with Four Corners. Judge Hoffman entered a Final Judgment on February 22, 2021, awarding Four Corners damages in the amount of $445,159.60 plus attorneys’ fees in the amount of $40,000.
“This was my first Zoom trial in Dallas County which made the victory all the more exciting,” said Martinez. “The client is very happy with this result.”
The case, styled Four Corners Development, LLC v. Parwaiz Alam and Alsal Construction, Inc., was tried in the 68th Judicial District of Dallas County, Texas, Honorable Martin Hoffman, presiding.
