Legal Services

A Unique Approach

Cotney’s legal team is unique because most 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.

Cotney Attorneys & Consultants Law is changing how the construction industry handles legal, risk and safety challenges. Since 1999, Trent Cotney, CEO of Cotney Attorneys & Consultants, has dedicated himself to serving the construction industry. Cotney’s team of lawyers have represented hundreds of contractors from all trades. The firm provides extensive services including defending contractors on construction defect claims, prosecuting lien and bond law claims, defending OSHA citations, contractor licensing defense, and bid protests. Having reviewed and drafted thousands of contracts, the Cotney team has a wealth of knowledge used to navigate and negotiate the contractual process. Their focus on key challenges such as alternative dispute resolution, employment law, immigration and succession planning makes them a truly unique group.


We are dedicated to providing our clients with competent and cost-effective legal representation. We routinely handle all facets of construction litigation, including appellate work. We have the knowledge, experience, resources and passion to level the playing field for our clients.
