A Powerful Team Protecting Your Interests
Some people know from a very young age what they want to do with their lives. Shari Thieman-Greene always knew she wanted to be a lawyer. After a successful foray into banking in her early 20s, she made the move to the legal field and found her true niche. Ashley Gartman Bell grew up working in the construction industry, as did her father and grandfather. She knows the jargon firsthand and understands the business and legal issues our construction clients face.
Together we make a formidable team. The law firm of Thieman-Greene & Bell delivers counsel and representation across the spectrum of business law and construction law, with an emphasis on litigation and dispute resolution. Our firm serves business owners, builders and developers, condo/homeowner associations and individual homeowners in Navarre, Pensacola, Destin, Crestview and elsewhere in Northwest Florida.
Passionate And Prepared Representation
We are passionate about the legal system and protecting our clients’ interests. Effective lawyers must be prepared. In many cases, litigation is avoided by being ready for it. With every client we represent, we fully prepare for each stage, whether we are acting on behalf of the plaintiff or defendant. This includes going to court when that is the best or only recourse and pursuing your appeals when merited.
Mindful Of The Costs Of Litigation
In the majority of cases, formal litigation is not the best option. Nine out of 10 times litigation is more expensive and more time-consuming than working through an acceptable settlement. Whether negotiating a settlement or taking a case to trial, we always work hard to balance the interests of our clients with our passion for litigation.
We Understand The Construction Industry
Living near the Gulf, we know the power and destruction that a hurricane can bring to an area. Natural disasters tend to bring about a “boom and bust” cycle in a community, especially in coastal areas. Living in an area where weather constantly affects construction, contractors and local businesses, we both have a keen understanding of the needs and challenges of this industry. Ashley also has real-world insights from growing up in the construction business.
