Scottsdale, Arizona - (June 15th, 2015) – James Sparks is an Arizona native. He graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Finance. He was a financial advisor at a large mutual fund company for about a year and then left to study law. James graduated from Phoenix School of Law with a J.D. in 2010 and immediately began practicing in the field of civil litigation, with a focus on construction law. James has represented numerous plaintiffs and defendants in commercial contract disputes. He has represented numerous professional license holders before the Arizona Office of Administrative hearings. He is admitted to both the State and Federal Court in Arizona. He is a member of the construction law section of the bar. James Sparks now offers assistance with stop notices, which can be very trying for a business. A stop notice can be used to force an owner or construction lender to withhold money for a particular subcontractor or material supplier, if that person has not been paid. In general, once served with a stop notice, the owner/construction lender may be required to withhold monies that would otherwise go to the prime contractor, in an amount that is sufficient to satisfy the amount owed to the subcontractor. Stop notices can also be used by prime contractors and material suppliers. In general, anyone that is entitled to record a lien is also entitled to send a Stop Notice. However, the procedural requirements for Stop Notices are complicated and are different depending on whether the type of Stop Notice and whether there are other bonds already in place for the project. There are penalties for serving a false stop notice. As such, an attorney should be consulted before sending a Stop Notice.
