Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Landlord question (In Illinois) Should tenants be required to have renters insurance? Any benefit to the landlord?
August 12, 2023
A: Illinois law allows a landlord to require a prospective tenant to have renter's insurance, which by the way is for your benefit because it will cover any loss you incur for the contents of your rented space for covered losses stated in your contract of insurance such as fire or theft and is usually inexpensive. And it can benefit the landlord from certain claims regarding any loss you incur or if a person is injured in your rented space.
Q. How do I get my money back from someone who tricked me into investing into his businesses. How can I sue?
August 3, 2023
A: The facts you stated may give rise to a cause of action for common law fraud and statutory fraud, pursuant to the Illinois Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act. You may be entitled to obtain an award of your actual damages and for the attorney's fees and costs you incur.

You may also have what are known as "Equitable Remedies" that might allow you to obtain an award to obtain the interest in the business that you were deprived of.

Please email me if you wish to discuss this further.
Q. We have general contractor who has abandoned the project, and has not paid the subcontractors. He has done subpar work.
August 3, 2023
A: Yes, you have stated facts that support suing the contractor for damages for breaching the contract and a cause of action for a breach of the Implied Warranty of Workmanship, whether the contract was written or oral, if your claim can be filed within the applicable statute of limitations.

Moreover, if the contractor failed to provide you with what is commonly referred to as a "know your rights pamphlet," pursuant to the Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act ( 815 ILCS 513/1, et seq) you can obtain an award

of actual damages, punitive damages and reasonable attorney’s fees and costs incurred you in pursuing this action against the contractor.

About The Law Offices of Gary S. Weiss, PC

I previously co-owned and operated a carpentry sub-contracting company.  Because I worked on job sites and managed the company, I understand the construction industry in a way that any other attorney that has never worked in the industry can. 

I have been providing exceptional and unique legal services to clients in the construction industry because of my experience as an owner and operator of a general contracting and carpentry sub-contracting business. My experience as a contractor gives me an edge over other attorneys who lack practical experience in the field. I understand the challenges, risks, and opportunities that contractors, owners, and developers face in every project, and I know how to protect their interests and rights.

I specialize in construction law, mechanic's lien law, and construction litigation, representing clients in disputes involving payment, performance, defects, delays, and contracts. I also help clients with drafting, reviewing, and negotiating construction contracts and agreements. I have successfully handled cases in state courts, arbitration, and mediation, achieving favorable outcomes for my clients. I am passionate about advocating for the quality, integrity, and fairness of the construction industry, and I take pride in delivering personalized and effective legal solutions.

I personally dealt with GC's who do not timely pay and suffered the consequences. I have seen true craftsmen go unpaid or have to accept a percentage of what they were owed and I've seen contractors who have no pride in their work perform sub-standard work to make a quick dollar.  As an attorney concentrating in Construction Law and Mechanics Lien disputes, I am constantly faced with the ugly side of the industry, and I understand the consequences of going unpaid, settling for a percentage of a contract and the bad contractors and the damage that they cause to owners -- and the damage that owners inflict on tradesmen. 

Having lived the life, I seek to protect my clients with solid contracts and provided advice to keep them out of having to go to court. But, if a matter must be litigated, I have over 30 years of court experience. I have real - world knowledge of the construction industry that other lawyers who never swung a hammer or went un-paid and as lawyer I have prosecuted and defended owners, contractors, and sub -contractors.

I always meet with potential clients at no cost because I believe that every person should have the opportunity to learn their rights and then decide as to the law and how it applies to their situations.
