Bramnick has been practicing law for over 15 years and focuses on all aspects of civil litigation including contract disputes, residential and commercial real estate disputes, business torts, construction litigation including mechanic’s liens and collections for contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers, and general post-judgment collections and enforcement matters.

Mike represents developers, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and other construction professionals in all aspects of the construction process ranging from contract review to litigation or alternative dispute resolution. He regularly handles matters involving breach of contract and payment disputes, mechanics liens, and other claims.
