Litigation - Construction

Heidi Storz of Kerrane Storz exhibits the highest standard of professionalism.

Litigation - Construction

Our community is made up of only nineteen homes. Sitting on the Arkansas River in Salida, Colorado, it's a wonderful location and each of our owners fell in love with their homes. Devastating to all, we had four roofs fail almost immediately after the community was completed. As often is the case, there was no support from the developer to repair or make us whole. Fortunately, it was within the timeline available for a Construction Defect Claim. The community determined to press forward against the developer. After three and a half years, we just settled in our favor. KerraneStorz' guidance and support throughout the process was impeccable, thoughtful and flawless. Their accessibility to the Board and to the community was consistently outstanding. Throughout the process, homeowners felt they were fully supported at all times by the KerraneStorz team. Remarkable experience for all.... From the Board's perspective, while going through being deposed by the defense and also slogging through a series of mediations, the KerraneStorz Team's mentoring and focus on our Board's needs eased these difficult challenges for us. As part of the whole KerraneStorz experience, we continue receiving their support on our post-settlement contracts with the engineering and repairs companies. KerraneStorz is vetting documents and advising us as to the best outcomes for our community. Done without additional charges or fees, we believe this is the only firm in our region providing such services at this critical stage of finally making our community whole. Every homeowner has been pleased with the way they've been treated as we went through this trying process. The civility and professionalism displayed by KereraneStorz has been exceptional. Because of their performance, we are still a community of friends, enjoying the beauty of Salida and the Arkansas River. After shoddy developer practices nearly destroyed both our community and our homes' values, we now have what we paid for and continue to enjoy our wonderful neighborhood. Thank you Jeff, Rebekah, Deanna, Danita and the whole Team, Board, Salida Riverfront Condominiums

Litigation - Construction

Heidi Storz and her legal team at Kerrane Storz were very knowledgeable in construction defect law. Heidi always walked me through the legal process so I knew what to expect or what should happen, what she and her team were doing behind the scenes, and the status of their dealings with the court or other lawyers and insurance companies involved in the case. Heidi helped in negotiations during the mediation process while still pushing forward with legal actions with the court, keeping a dual pronged approach to finding a suitable resolution. Heidi and her team created documents to show our scope of work demand requirements and the opposing counsels' counter demands. Without Heidi and her team, a negotiated settlement would not have been possible. Heidi and team were always professional yet personable during the legal process.

Litigation - Construction

Initially, our HOA community was working with a different firm on a Construction Defect case against the developer. No one in the community had been involved in this type of litigation before. The previous attorneys were a struggle; the Board was constantly begging for timely support, advice and guidance; that communication seldom happened without days of delay. KerraneStorz has been the epitome of professional, communicative, proactive and involved with us. In fact, the whole community has access to KerraneStorz cell numbers. Each attorney actually answers and guides us through this CD supportively. They attend our meetings, answer questions with language that we, as laymen, can understand. There's no obfuscation, no delay, no pontification. The community is delighted with the transparency in which KerransStorz addresses us.

Litigation - Construction

The firm of Kerrane Storz’s and our team of attorneys have been extremely supportive in our construction defect suit filed against our communities developers and builder. We work with a team of attorneys that are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the area of construction defects and building standards. They are prompt in their response to questions, provide information to help educate the board on building standards, and communicate frequently to help keep our homeowners up-to-date on the process, next steps in the process, and timelines. Dealing with our lawsuit during the COVID-19 pandemic has added additional challenges to the suit and the length of time it is taking to settle the suit because the court system in Colorado is struggling to handle the volume of cases with the COVID restrictions in place. Our attorney’s have kept the board up-to-date on changes, schedules, and provided as much information as available on what will happen next. I would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with construction defects in their individual homes or a community development.

Kerrane Storz fought long and hard for a group of neighbors and me. They helped us understand and navigate the process. I held a stereotypical view of how successful lawyers would behave, but Heidi Storz and her colleagues were warm and always accessible. We couldn't have been in better hands. I was almost sorry when our case was resolved since we wouldn't get to be in touch so often.

Litigation - Construction

The team at Benson, Kerrane, Storz & Nelson belie the (unfair) notion that lawyers are cut-throat and impersonal. Heidi Storz and her team are smart, responsive, genuine, and warm. They keep clients up-to-date on their cases, respond to a client's questions promptly and make sure that the client understands what they're saying. I feel like I'm getting top-notch legal advice and representation. The firm's lawyers have made an unpleasant situation more bearable.

Litigation - Construction

Benson, Kerrane, Storz & Nelson is an excellent firm. They took care of our community and made sure our community was given a chance to correct the construction defect made by the builder. Without them, our community would have been left holding the bag for a multi-million construction defect.

Litigation - Construction

Our HOA was pleased with our association with Benson, Kerrane, Storz & Nelson. I was the treasurer on our HOA Board at the time and was our representative testifying before the Arbiter. They were quite patient in educating us regarding construction defect - law pertaining to construction defect, engineering reports, arbitration procedure, etc. They were very accessible and responsive to occurrences on our property and questions we had during that time. Benson, Kerrane, Storz & Nelson provided a better-than-expected settlement of our grievances with the builder of our homes.
