Airport Practice Group


Marchena and Graham, P.A. has extensive experience in airport representation. Our attorneys have particular experience in advising boards and board members with respect to satisfying the legal requirements of their actions and their office. The firm has recent and significant experience addressing complex federal aviation issues and navigating the requirements for successfully concluding matters with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Florida Department of Transportation. Over the past seven years, Marchena and Graham’s attorneys have advised large hub and general aviation airports in no less than fifty revenue use questions. Our attorneys have addressed and resolved
complex issues arising out of the interactions between the airport and local municipality to such an extent that it has become routine as a result of our experience. Over time our attorneys have become highly regarded advisers in all matters dealing with civil rights programs, including the development of DBE and Title VI programs. We routinely advise public officials with respect to matters dealing with Government in the Sunshine, public records requests and real property development. The airport industry issues described above involve unique regulatory rules and processes and, as a result, require a different type of experience than is generally gained in non-airport related administrative, transactional, land use and financing matters. Consequently, specific airport experience in these areas is invaluable to competent representation of airports.

  • FAA Relations and Compliance
