Skilled legal counsel can help avoid problems due to paperwork

Paperwork can be both a help and a hindrance. Many times, the paperwork trail provides proof that a job was completed or that something was agreed to. However, paperwork can also get misplaced, lost or even destroyed. Paperwork can be essential to many Texas businesses and business owners. Without the proper paperwork, it is possible that the individual will need the services of skilled legal counsel to prevent or minimize problems.

Recently, a Texas builder was charged with a felony related to a government document. This builder is currently constructing a custom home and was asked to produce an inspection certificate. The builder did submit the certificate; however, the city building official who requested it was unable to verify the certificate. The firm that was responsible for completed the inspection claimed that the home had failed inspection and that the certificate the builder submitted was a forgery.

The builder claimed that the home originally failed inspection due to changes in the building plans. He also indicated that the home had later passed inspection. Regardless, the builder was arrested and now faces a felony charge.

In this particular case, an item of paperwork is in question. Is it possible that the builder simply submitted the wrong certificate? As the builder claims, is he the target of a crusade against his company? Paperwork mistakes are common, and they can have serious repercussions for the Texas business and the business owner. Sometimes the paperwork can lead to legal concerns that require guidance of skilled legal counsel.
