In 1972, Mr. J. Richard Cheeks graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Engineering with the BSCE and MSCE degrees.
Mr. Cheeks' Masters work concentrated on this emerging discipline of geotechnical engineering.
Mr. Cheeks began his private practice of geotechnical enginerring with Law Engineering Testing Company where he worked first in Jacksonville, Florida and then Nashville, Tennessee.
At Law Engineering
, Mr Cheeks
technical skills and developed a reputation for his
attention to detail and his
Mr. Stokley's desire to slow down and retire merged with Mr. Cheeks'
desire to return to Central Kentucky in 1978 when they joined to form Stokley-Cheeks and Associates, Inc.
Mr. Cheeks became President of Stokley-Cheeks and Associates, Inc., and Mr. Stokley retired in 1981.
Over the last 20 years, when these failures have geotechnical grounds, Mr. Cheeks
has been asked to determine what went wrong and who was responsible.
By the early 1990s, about half of Mr. Cheeks'
personal practice was forensic, and in the late 1990s, Mr. Cheeks
decided to attend law school and dedicate his
remaining engineering career to forensics.
Today, Mr. Cheeks
provides forensic geotechnical engineering services to owners, design professionals, contractors and their lawyers.
