How do I get out of my American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract in Maryland?

There are countless ways that your project could go wrong, and there are a few ways that you might be able to get out of your AIA contract. First, see what options you have in the terms of the contract. Although AIA contracts are standardized, you can always negotiate them prior to execution. If you are not getting paid monthly or by milestones, there are some situations where you can simply stop working, but it is usually better to finish the required work and file an action for unpaid balances.

We can help comb through your contract and determine the best options based on your specific circumstances.
