Cotney Attorneys & Consultants

 

Watch Who We Are!


Cotney is a national law firm with offices throughout Florida, Charlotte, Denver, Grand Rapids, Houston, Mobile, and Nashville,  specializing in the representation of businesses and professionals in construction disputes and transactions throughout the State of Florida and beyond.

The firm has specialized in roofing litigation and arbitration since 1999, including defending roofing contractors on construction defect claims, prosecuting lien and bond law claims, defending OSHA citations, contractor licensing defense, and bid protests. Cotney is well respected for his extensive review and drafts of hundreds of roofing-related contracts a year for roofing contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and others in the industry.

Cotney is a unique construction law firm because all of its attorneys have a background in construction ranging from work as estimators for structural contractors, roofers, overseas manufacturers of construction products, and supply house distributors. At Cotney, we understand construction – not because we read it in a book, but because our real-world knowledge allows us to provide clients with both legal and practical advice.
