Lawyer & AIA Doc Recommendations

  • 1.  Lawyer & AIA Doc Recommendations

    Posted 02-08-2019 14:35

    I have recently just started my own practice and have my first project - a custom residential addition and remodel. I'm posting to the group hoping to get:

    1. Recommendations for lawyers in the Sacramento, Folsom or Auburn area (I am located in Granite Bay) that can help me with the legal matters that come with running a small architecture practice including contract/document review.

    2. Advice on which AIA documents I should use for such a project (small residential addition and remodel, design-bid-build).

    Any advice on what other architects typically do for their projects is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!
