University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law
For 30 years as a trial attorney in San Diego, I have had incredible experiences with a large number of major cases with dedicated judges and talented attorneys on the other side. Most recently I represented a plumbing contractor in a Miller Act claim. Our client was one of many seeking to recover, but was the only party who actually recovered a substantial amount.
I came to San Diego 30 years ago to go to work for Jan Goldsmith, the current City Attorney, doing business litigation. Subsequently, I went to work with Tom Gade and began representing a variety of clients from all segments of the construction industry including owners, architects, prime contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and sureties.
In 2003, Tom Gade and I merged our firm with our great friends, Ross Schwartz and Dick Semerdjian, to form what is now Schwartz Semerdjian Cauley & Moot LLP. We have striven to develop a law firm of incredibly talented attorneys and staff. We take great pride in the people and companies we represent, applying our legal skills to achieve success and excellence for our clients.
I am currently the chapter counsel to the Associated Subcontractors Alliance in San Diego. I am the past chairman of the San Diego County Bar Association Construction Law Section and a member of the American Bar Association Construction Law Section. Our firm has been honored twice with the Associated Subcontractors Alliance Affiliate of the Year Award in 2010 and 2014. I have been recognized in the 2010-14 editions of Super Lawyers in the construction litigation category. I am a member of the Associated Builders & Contractors and Associated General Contractors of America.
