Trenchless Legal Services

You focus on trenchless construction. Your lawyer should too.

Ted Roberts here. This page offers a little more about me and what I do.

Trenchless Legal Services is the name of my law practice. Focused exclusively on serving the legal needs of the trenchless community, TLS is based on the idea that lawyers and law firms, like civil contractors and engineers, can do more with less when they focus on doing a few things well.

Trenchless construction, particularly horizontal directional drilling, comes with its own issues and problems, standards and guidelines, experts and expertise. On top of years of experience practicing construction law, I’ve spent hundreds of hours handling cases involving disputes over HDD projects, including claims involving differing site conditions, delays, defective work, and insurance coverage. Each one of my trenchless clients receives the value of this experience at no additional charge.

About Trenchless Legal Services | Horizontal Directional Drilling Attorney

Many lawyers and law firms are reluctant to define themselves in such narrow terms, fearing that they will miss out on new clients and legal fees. I believe clients are best served by lawyers with experience in their clients’ specific industry and with their specific problems and issues.

Those tempted to pay more for expensive lawyers at Big Firms may want to weigh the costs and benefits of doing so. Some Big Firm clients end up disappointed when the lawyer they thought they hired ends up delegating most of the work to one or more junior associates. Others quickly grow tired of footing the bill for Big Firm inefficiencies like interoffice conferences and memos, time billed by new lawyers still learning how to practice, and “file reviews” by additional lawyers working on the case, either because the original lawyer was too busy with other things or has simply left the firm for greener pastures.

My approach is different and, I think, better. I keep my caseload manageable so I can do the work myself, giving each case my full focus and attention.

If you need a lawyer with experience handling matters involving trenchless construction, then consider scheduling a free consultation. We may be a good fit if you need a lawyer who:

  • will personally handle your case rather than hand it off to a junior associate;
  • can focus on what it takes to move your case forward;
  • is under no pressure to satisfy the astronomical billing quotas set by most law firms; and
  • will not take your case if it is better handled by another lawyer or law firm.
