Overview

Jevon Bindman focuses his work on construction and appellate litigation as well as general commercial matters. He provides practical advice to help his clients navigate all phases of their construction projects, from contract negotiations to asserting or defending claims. He has represented owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, design professionals, and sureties in construction and design defect claims, delay and extra work claims, performance and payment bond claims, and mechanics liens.

Jevon has significant trial practice experience, having taken complex construction matters to jury verdict. He is skilled in all stages of pre-trial civil litigation, including leveraging written discovery and deposition testimony to improve settlement position, drafting successful dispositive motions to avoid trial risks, and working with expert witnesses. Jevon also regularly prosecutes appeals in the Eighth Circuit as well as in Minnesota appellate courts.

Jevon values pro bono service and regularly volunteers at the Minnesota State Law Library Appeals Clinic. He was a member of the Maslon team who successfully vacated Douglas Tyrone Armstrong's death sentence. Jevon also reversed a criminal conviction in the Court of Appeals on the basis that evidence was obtained in violation of the client's constitutional rights.

Jevon is active in his community and engaged with a range of legal and arts organizations. He is a member of the Minnesota Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the Rules of Evidence, and is active as a speaker and presenter on the topics of evidence and the rules governing federal and Minnesota state courts. Additionally, Jevon is a governing member of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and a founder and board member of Arts Roseville, which seeks to advance local arts and creativity.

Before joining Maslon, Jevon served as a law clerk to the Honorable G. Barry Anderson of the Minnesota Supreme Court. Prior to law school he was a middle and high school choir teacher. In his spare time he enjoys singing and performing home renovations.
