(Dallas, TX) – WSHB is proud to announce the arrival of one of Texas's leading construction litigators, Cynthia A. Tari, to the firm's Dallas office. With over 25 years of experience litigating and arbitrating construction disputes, Ms. Tari's case handling includes breach of contract, negligence, professional malpractice, and lien/bond claims on both public and private projects.
"Cynthia brings to every matter assigned a unique skill set emanating from the fact that she worked in architecture for years before becoming a lawyer," said Stephen Henning, one of the co-founders of WSHB. Ms. Tari has designed and overseen construction projects from start to finish, including single family, mixed use, commercial and high-rise developments. "This real life experience gives Cynthia a unique perspective and advantage in handling construction defect and professional design matters."
A thought leader in the State of Texas, Ms. Tari has authored numerous articles in the field of construction litigation and risk transfer. Additionally, Ms. Tari's background in architecture has resulted in her being a sought after presenter and speaker at seminars involving both design and constructions held throughout the nation.
