Procopio Construction Litigator Recognized by Super Lawyers in Southern California for Second Straight Year
Procopio Partner Mary Salamone has been recognized by her peers as a 2023 Super Lawyer for Southern California (Orange County and Los Angeles). This is her second straight year earning the recognition. Thomson Reuters announces Super Lawyers and Rising Stars throughout the year in various geographic regions. In 2022, dozens of Procopio attorneys were recognized in Southern California, San Diego, Northern California and the Southwest. Each year, no more than 5% of the lawyers in the state of California are named a Super Lawyer.
Mary counsels public and private construction industry clients on alternative project delivery methods, competitive bidding, contract drafting, project management and contract administration, scheduling and delay issues, lost productivity, differing site conditions, change orders for added scope, cost overruns, mechanics lien, stop payment notice and bond rights, risk management, claims resolution, and more.
She represents a wide array of large contractors, subcontractors, and designers, as well as counties, municipalities and other governmental agencies both in California and nationally. Mary has handled multimillion-dollar disputes on high profile, complex construction projects, achieving favorable settlements and judgments on behalf of her clients.
