With nearly 30 years of experience, Mr. Molineux enjoyed an active litigation practice handling cases for both defendants and plaintiffs in a variety of areas, including breach of contract, business, construction, construction defect, insurance bad faith, insurance coverage, negligence, premises liability and real estate.  His emphasis was on complex construction defect cases where Mr. Molineux represented commercial building owners, general contractors, subcontractors, homeowners, homeowner’s associations, hospitals and Indian casinos. For 15 years, Mr. Molineux also acted as insurance defense counsel for a number of insurance carriers, handling the defense of personal injury and premises liability cases.  He has served as lead counsel in hundreds of mediations and Special Master proceedings.  His breadth of experience and understanding of issues important to both plaintiffs and defendants, make him ideally suited to assisting parties and their counsel in resolving a wide range of disputes.
