South FL Contractor Lawyer

If you are a contractor in the construction industry, you may have already found yourself in need of legal counsel a time or two. Perhaps you have been embroiled in a dispute with a subcontractor, have needed OSHA defense, or simply required assistance drafting or reviewing a contract. When it comes down to it, every South FL contractor needs a skilled and tenacious South FL contractor lawyer on their side.

License Defense

You have worked hard to become a certified general contractor in the state of Florida, and we will aggressively defend this accomplishment. We defend contractors on both a state and local level when they find themselves in a dispute involving their license.

Cotney Attorneys & Consultants attorneys can respond on your behalf to Department of Business and Professional Regulation investigations. We will also represent you before the Construction Industry Licensing Board and Electrical Contractors Licensing Board.

Remember, our South FL contractor lawyers have a robust understanding of construction law and can defend more than just contractors! We also argue for engineers, architects, and other design professionals in front of their respective governing boards.

What Types of Cases Do You Take?

Trent Cotney has been defending construction professionals since 1999, and Cotney Attorneys & Consultants is now a national firm that employs dozens of attorneys—yet retains its personal touch, which is tailored to fit each client’s specific needs.

Over our years of experience, many of our license defense cases have been based on the following:

  • Abandonment of a project
  • Failure to notify DBPR of prior criminal convictions
  • Failure to obtain a permit
  • Fraud
  • Improper licensure
  • Judgments relating to the practice of construction
  • Misallocation of funds
  • Negligence
  • Renting your license

No matter the specifics of your case, we urge you to treat the situation seriously and contact an attorney as soon as you can. When allegations against your license are not dealt with proactively, you could face costly penalties, restrictions on your service offerings, license suspension, or complete revocation of your license.
