Smith, Currie & Hancock’s Washington, DC office is located in the heart of downtown at 1025 Connecticut Avenue, NW, just blocks away from the White House, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  From its founding, the firm has had a robust practice related to construction and federal government contracts.  The attorneys associated with the DC office have years of experience not only handling private and public construction issues but also in dealing with a broad spectrum of federal government contracting issues.  These include the preparation and prosecution of claims and bid protests, defending against suspension and debarment and false claims, and handling matters related to the rules applicable to small businesses, minority contracting and the mentor/protégé program. 

Prior to entering private practice, Alan Saltman was an Attorney-Advisor at the Government Accountability Office, and thereafter has successfully prosecuted enumerable bid protests and contract disputes involving all types of contracts.  Rick Goeken, for the past 17 years, has also concentrated his practice on federal contracts including those related to the sale of natural resources, access to federal lands, and compliance with federal environmental rules.

Also working out of both the DC office and the firm’s Atlanta office are Steve Reed and Charles Surasky. Steve served for 18 years as an Administrative Judge and Hearing Examiner with the Corps of Engineers and the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals. Charles specializes in the trial and arbitration of complex construction disputes involving both private and government construction contracts.

The most recent addition to the DC office has been Scott C. Turner who also works out of the San Francisco office.  Scott is one of the foremost attorneys in the country on the subject of construction insurance coverage and the author of the leading treatise on the subject, “Insurance Coverage of Construction Disputes.”

These attorneys, in addition to the associates and of counsel attorneys in the DC office and others throughout the firm, provide unparalleled experience both in the federal government arena and in handling construction matters.
