Neale T. Johnson

Smith Moore Leatherwood Partner Neale T. Johnson has been selected chair-elect of the Subcontractors and Suppliers Division of the American Bar Association (ABA) Forum on Construction Law. His term as chair begins in September 2018.

Johnson’s practice focuses on construction law (transactional and dispute resolution), real estate litigation, financial services litigation and general commercial litigation.

He assists owners, designers, general contractors and trade contractors with contract negotiation, dispute avoidance and dispute resolution. Johnson leverages more than 15 years of construction litigation experience to help clients identify and allocate business risks during contract negotiation to reduce conflict during the project. His experience in construction litigation and alternative dispute resolution includes the full range of public and private construction disputes.

The ABA Forum on Construction Law is the largest organization of construction lawyers in the United States. The Forum’s roughly 6,000 members and associates are drawn from all types of construction practice – law firms large and small, solo practitioners, in-house and government counsel, as well as construction professionals and the public sector. Forum members represent all segments of the construction industry: owners, developers, design professionals, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, construction managers, lenders, insurers and sureties.

Habitat House 2017 Volunteers & Contributions Needed

Efforts to build our eighth Habitat for Humanity House are underway and we are asking for your support through financial contributions and volunteer hours. Please complete the 2017 Habitat Contribution Form the 2017 Habitat Volunteer Form now. We also offer the option of donating online at Habitat House Online Donations.  Although your payment can be made either this year or by February 28, 2017, we need to obtain donations and commitments as soon as possible.

Donations are tax deductible and can be made to the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation, Inc., marked for the Habitat for Humanity House.   You have the option of making a donation in honor of or in memory of persons you specify.

Please also complete and submit your volunteer form.  You do NOT need prior construction experience.  In fact, you may wish to sign up for an unfamiliar task in order to obtain a new skill.  In addition to volunteers for construction, we also need volunteers to help schedule work crews and volunteers to act as liaison with the homebuyer and their family.

 

We plan to begin construction on Saturday, April 1, 2017.  Typically we work on Saturdays and construction takes 18 weeks.  However, if there is sufficient interest (typically 18 or so volunteers for outside tasks or 8 to 10 for inside tasks), we can schedule workdays on Wednesdays or Thursdays in addition to Saturdays.  Please indicate on your volunteer form if you can work during the week.
