"I have had the opportunity to work with Gary a few times during my career as a contractor here in Santa Cruz. Gary wrote all the contracts for a large custom home I was working on as the project manager for the homeowner. The documents covered everything from bid packages to lien releases and the project, which lasted three years, was completed without any problems.
I was asked to arbitrate a small case with Gary and another local construction attorney. I found Gary to be fair and reasonable and I have a great deal of respect for Gary from both a legal and a builder perspective.  We too, still use his legal documents from the Contractor’s Legal Kit!”

“I recommend Gary Ransone, Esq. to the building trades.
I have worked on and off with Gary for about two decades here in the Santa Cruz area. Gary is a very knowledgeable and well seasoned construction attorney. I know a fair deal about construction disputes and I strongly recommend that any construction business law questions or problems that you have – you take to someone who specializes in it – like Gary Ransone, Esq.
Gary is an excellent choice.”

“Gary Ransone is a clear thinker helping to navigate the complex system of construction law. The Contractors Legal Kit is a comprehensive resource; I have used his contracts for the past 15 years and find them to be invaluable, proven over the test of time. A good contract protects both the contractor and the homeowner. Gary understands how to support a win/win relationship through contracts that actually communicate what is important for both parties. Over the years, I have consulted with Gary several times and he has been extremely informative and helpful. The construction industry is complex, especially for my business as a design build company. Gary has distilled his experience and knowledge and is an excellent resource to the Santa Cruz community. He is a big fish in a little pond, much to our benefit.”
