Construction equipment secured by mechanic's lien

DIR and Prevailing Wage Attorneys


Prevailing wages are the basic hourly rate of pay paid to workers on public works of improvement. Because all public works projects are awarded to the “lowest responsible bidder” the establishment of a floor in the prevailing wage law ensures that public agencies award contracts only to those bidders who employ skilled, competent construction workers. Prevailing wages protect local area hourly rates and benefit standards for workers and contractors alike.

The prevailing wage attorneys at Flores Ryan, LLP have expertise in every aspect of prevailing wage procedures and strategies. We provide the legal expertise to ensure that each prevailing wage dispute is handled efficiently and effectively. Our extensive experience as prevailing wage attorneys allows us to advance prevailing wage claims strategically to maximize the likelihood of a rapid and substantial recovery.
