Axley’s DOT Attorneys Buck Sweeney is a licensed engineer and regularly works with the Department of Transportation (“DOT”). We are very effective in negotiating with DOT on a wide range of issues, including contracts, change orders on various projects, easement issues, and all components of projects where contractors interact with DOT. At times, there is a necessity to work with various parties to come up with a creative dispute resolution and a win-win for the taxpayers, as well as the contractors working on these challenging transportation projects.

There is a wide gamut of interaction with DOT, including working with the aeronautical division, land acquisition division, and the primary bread-and-butter of contract-related issues. Mr. Sweeney’s engineering expertise helps solve problems in ways not found in other law firms.
