Devin S. Girardi is an associate attorney with Lyman & Nielsen, LLC. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Girardi clerked for several years for the Hon. Lisa R. Curcio in the Mechanics Lien Section of the Chancery Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Mr. Girardi’s clerkship centered on mechanics lien litigation and construction disputes. His extensive research and writing focused primarily on mechanics lien and real property law, contract performance issues pertaining to developers, builders, and suppliers, and construction defect disputes. Prior to clerking for Judge Curcio, Mr. Girardi clerked for the Hon. Mary K.
