Many times this leads to Alternative Dispute Resolution to remedy the situation instead of costly litigation. Mr. Petit is a trained mediator according to the Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators
(Maryland House Rule 17-104). His experience is based on current building codes, tradesman manuals, 12 years working for other construction companies, and over 20 years of owning his own remodeling firm in Maryland.
