Resolving Your Dispute within the Court System

When compromise no longer seems like a feasible way to resolve your dispute, our attorneys will bring your case before the courts. We handle a variety of civil law cases including:

Ardea G. Canepa-Rotoli, Robert C. Maddox and Eva G. Segerblom

Construction Defects

If something about your home, association or commercial property does not work the way it is supposed to, you are likely entitled to have the defect repaired. Window leaks, roof leaks, spalling concrete, deteriorating stucco, inadequate drainage, and foundation cracking are all examples of construction defects that property owners may experience. Our attorneys will determine whether your home suffers from a construction defect and we will guide you through the legal process to remedy the problem.

Construction Defects for Homeowners Associations

Associations maintain the right to pursue claims for construction defect relating to the areas/elements which affect the common interest community. The right to pursue these claims gives associations a powerful hand to ensure the property values throughout their communities are maintained. If construction defects are present within your community, contact us to arrange a free initial inspection. A representative from our firm will meet with your association board and individual homeowners to further explain your legal rights.

Consumer Advocacy

As members of the Nevada Justice Association, our attorneys are committed to protecting consumers from faulty products and deceptive and manipulative trade practices. Our firm serves to strengthen consumer protection statutes and protect individuals through the legislative and judicial process.

Class Action

Our civil litigation attorneys prosecute class actions regarding a wide range of problems. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide the highest quality legal representation on a contingency fee basis while maintaining the strictest ethical standards.

When you contact us concerning a potential case, we investigate the matter and make appropriate recommendations. If we agree to undertake representation, and you authorize us to proceed, we will file the case in the appropriate court. We shoulder all the costs of the litigation and do not charge you for our services unless we obtain a recovery. In class action lawsuits, the attorneys’ fees must be approved by the Court. We obtain our fees from the money paid by the defendant(s) at the successful conclusion of each case.

Product Liability

History is filled with cases where legal action has enforced accountability based on the danger of defective products. Enforcement of manufacturers or sellers’ legal accountability to consumers helps to make products better and safer for the overall community.

Appellate Practice

Our firm has experience in the Nevada Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal. Appellate advocacy is a discrete practice area that requires specialized skill. Our civil litigation attorneys will take your case to the highest Court if necessary to ensure your rights are protected.

Frances Castelli

We used Maddox, Segerblom & Canepa to represent us in a legal suit re problems in construction on new properties that we purchased from a developer.

We were very pleased with the representation provided by this law firm. They were fully communicative, responsive to our questions and were very knowledgeable about the issues that required resolution. Even after we reached a resolution, they have been responsive in making sure to point us in the right direction for help with repairs that are required.

We would recommend them to others with similar issues that require legal help.

Atam & Margo Lalchandani

Maddox, Segerblom & Canepa did a FANTASTIC job in our construction defects case. I interacted with several people from their office throughout our 2 year litigation. Their staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always prompt about getting back to you when you have questions/comments/concerns. I especially enjoyed working with Darcy, Ardea, Eva, and Sandra. Being part of a lawsuit is no fun for anyone, but if you have to be a part of one, I can’t say enough positive things about this firm!

Victoria Fox

The law firm of Maddox, Segerblom, and Canepa were amazing to work with. They were thorough and always available for any questions we had. We worked a lot with Sandy who was always professional, friendly, always on time for appointments and just a great person to represent this firm. We have never been involved in a law suit before and they made it comfortable for us. We appreciate the hard work the lawyers and people who work for the firm did and would recommend them.
