70th Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion

On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D.

The cost in lives on D-Day was high.

God Bless all our troops and Thank You to all the Service Men and Women that have served, fought and died in the name of all Americans.

In order to address the problems, we first need information.  After internal discussion, the construction attorneys at Sacks Tierney P.A. have prepared a short, five-question survey in order to gather information about contractors’ experiences under the new complaint p…
