Description of Practice

Daya J. Naef, Esq. is a third-generation member of the Construction and Real Estate industries. At an early age she gained experience working with her family’s residential construction company and was in close contact with relatives working as realtors, brokers, interior designers, developers and commercial contractors. When she decided to pursue her legal career, specializing in construction was a natural fit. Since 1999 she has represented general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, owners, developers, condominium associations, property managers, design professionals, agencies, associations and municipalities/non-governmental organizations.

Daya has a stellar reputation for seeing a job through from start to finish. She is proficient in drafting and reviewing construction contracts, preparing and filing liens/releases and bond/insurance claims. In addition, Daya can handle business formations, office and site set-ups, real estate transactions, title opinions and reviews, compliance audits, municipal and state taxing issues, board complaints and multi-party mediation.

Because of the depth of Daya’s knowledge of construction law and her excellent communication skills, her clients know what to expect in terms of time, outcome and cost. By choosing Daya Naef, LLC as your consultant and/or legal service provider, you will gain reliable expertise and excellent service.

I zealously represent my clients’ interest in an expedient manner, working cooperatively with other attorneys and firms to form a cost-effective and efficient strategy, for their clients and mine. I believe in working “For the Good of the Project”, much like the Family law concept for the good of the child. I will always strive to put the needs of the project first. I will do my best to keep the costs and wastes caused by a lack of communication. — Daya Naef, Esquire
