Property Owners

In construction law, a property owner is someone who owns property and contracts with another person (a general contractor) to build on that property. On occasion, the property owner will run into performance issues from the general contractor. Other times, a general contractor may refuse performance altogether. If you are a property owner under contract having difficulty with a general contractor, call us now to discuss your options.

Homeowners’ and Property Owners’ Associations (HOA/POAs)

Sometimes a lawsuit by one property owner is impractical. For instance, condominiums and closely-nit residential subdivisions built by the same general contractor or developer often suffer construction defects that touch and concern many. A builder might install the wrong shingle on every home in the neighborhood, or the plumbing could be defective throughout a single structure with multiple units affecting everyone who lives there. These claimants need a law firm that knows how to assert a class action or who can work closely with the HOA/POA to meet the requirements to retain counsel under the HOA/POA’s established rules and operating procedures. If you and your neighbors or your HOA/POA are having issues with new construction, call us right away to discuss your options. Time is of the essence.

General Contractors

A general contractor (or original contractor) is a person contracting with a property owner either directly or through the owner’s agent. Occasionally, general contractors run into payment issues with the property owner. General contractor’s must act fast in order to perfect a lien or make a claim for retainage. If you’re a general contractor having payment issues with a property owner, call us now. Time is of the essence.

A subcontractor is a person who has furnished labor or materials to fulfill an obligation to a general contractor or subcontractor to perform all or part of the work required by an original contract. First-tier subcontractors are those subcontractors and suppliers having an agreement with the original contractor. Second-tier subcontractors and suppliers (and all lower tiers) do not have an agreement with the original contractor. Occasionally, subcontractors run into payment issues with the general contractor. First and second-tier subcontractors must act very quickly in order to trap funds or perfect a lien. If you’re a subcontractor and have not been paid, call us right away.

Time is of the essence.

Fast, efficient, and flexible with his scheduling, Russell did a fantastic job handling our estate planning before we went on a long trip overseas. He is very knowledgeable and willing to research details that fit your specific needs at an affordable price.

Rebecca DittmarPflugerville, TX

Russell is the best! He recently helped me with a legal matter and was very courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. Got everything I wanted in very little time and at a fraction of the cost of what other attorneys wanted to charge me.

Jason LongCedar Park, TX

Russell recently helped prepare my will. He was knowledgeable, easy to schedule with, and stayed in contact along the way to make sure any questions I had were answered. I would definitely go to him again the next time I need legal help.

Bart LackornAustin, TX

Russell recently worked on my estate planning documents including my will, medical power of attorney, etc. He made sure I understood each of the documents very clearly and that they 100% matched my wishes before executing everything.

Teresa LewisAustin, TX

Russell is awesome! My wife was on hospital bed-rest with our first child and we really wanted to get our estate planning documents in place before his birth. Russell not only came to the hospital to walk us through creating our documents, he returned to the hospital with a notary just days later for an execution ceremony. Russell is a great attorney with tons of knowledge...

Nick ShiffertAustin, TX

Russell was very easy to work with and always kept me informed. He handled everything in a very sufficient and timely manner. Thanks to his knowledge and persistence, we were able to settle the lawsuit effectively. Also a very down-to-earth guy and easy to talk to.

Randall LopezAustin, TX

Russell completed fairly complex business documents for the transfer of our company. He was thorough, accurate and timely. I can not write enough as to how pleased I was with his service and expertise.

Don RichieAustin, TX

Russell Frost is the epitome of excellence in legal services. During the last six months, he facilitated a commercial real estate matter for me, that was very daunting. His promptness and attention to detail exceeded my expectations. I felt that my case was handled with the highest priority. The personal service I received made feel safe and secure during the entire process which gave me great piece of mind, and let me almost remove myself from the situation knowing that I was being represented by Russell Frost. I highly recommend Russell Frost if you are in the need of legal representation.

Lisa KundeSeguin, TX

Russell assisted with a case where our landlord had been foreclosed on, and we were being asked to pay several different parties. He was very responsive and helpful in getting us out of our current lease. We were able to get out of that lease, and also get 23 free days to move to our new apartment. Our case wasn't a focus of Russell's, but he was very proactive in finding out the details around our situation and continued until he was able to resolve our issues.


Russell does great work! He has already helped me form a LLC and take care of estate planning. He gets work done!

Josh BakerPflugerville, Texas

I have seen Russell in action in federal court as opposing counsel and was so impressed by his skills that I subsequently began joint- venturing cases with him. He is a top notch attorney and any client would lucky to have him on their side.

Drew GibbsCarlson Law Firm

Litigation is in and of itself unpleasant, but Russell Frost’s professionalism and thoroughness of representation coupled with calmness and even humor, made my experience as pleasant as it could possibly be. He is down to earth and very easy to work and did a wonderful job of explaining each step of the process as the litigation moved along. He has confidence without the arrogance, unlike many other attorneys. I have had the unfortunate opportunity to retain two other local attorney in the past and I do not have one good word to share about either. I believe Russell did his best to represent me and after all was said and done, I was actually glad Russell got some of my money instead of the roofing company. I highly recommend Russell Frost and would definitely use his services again!
