I could not have been more fortunate to have stumbled across Stephen Cobb's name when trying to find a lawyer for my misdemeanor case. He and his assistant Janice were extremely professional, honest, and sincere. Not to mention, it was very affordable and worth every penny spent. Both Stephen and Janice returned my calls promptly and thoroughly. The most comforting part was knowing that my case was in great hands and throughout the process I felt Stephen Cobb would be successful in getting the outcome I had hoped to achieve - and he did!

I ended up in a bad set of circumstances because of a State Driver's License computer error. I am a CDL holder so protecting my license status and not having a criminal record is vital my ability to drive & earn an income. Mr. Cobb was EXTREMELY knowledgeable in traffic & criminal law and was able to come up with the best route to win the case. He represented me tenaciously against the State of Florida and the case was dismissed. I could not be any more thankful that I had the opportunity to be represented by Mr. Cobb.

I was very fortunate to have rendered Mr. Cobbs service . Due to multiple DUI's I was facing a substantial amount of jail time. One of Mr Cobbs request is that I go to Amen clinic for Brian imaging.
Not only was this a tremendous help for me it also was a major contributor in my jail sentences. I also would like to thank Janice for her hard work and constant communication over the few months. I highly recommend Mr. Cobb.

Mr. Cobb and Associates, my family and I want to express our gratitude for your dedication when it came to our son’s case. We had no knowledge of where to solicit local, Okaloosa County, trust worthy professional legal counsel. After reading through reviews we chose to place our faith in Mr. Cobb and Associates. Mr. Cobb the faith you placed in our son and your ability to demonstrate your faith in our son to the court was instrumental in the court-granting leniency.
Mr. Cobb has expertise and wit. He has the respect of the Okaloosa County judicial system. He uses only the necessary facts needed to get the best results.

Mr. Cobb successfully resolved my case, prior to jury selection, through progressive negotiation with the Prosecuting Attorney. In the end, he provided the Prosecuting Attorney with a written statement that included the salient facts and sequence of the arrest, and a supported argument that the officer in fact had no grounds to arrest me, and therefore I could not be charged with resisting arrest.
Mr. Cobb makes use of a comprehensive four day report, completed by the defendant, to determine the most effective course of action in winning a case. He also provides assistance to the defendant in the form of a self-help material list, and a dress code for court that has been proven to contribute to the outcome.
Mr. Cobb is easy to talk to, and is careful not to belabor points before the judge, and swiftly moves forward. He is one of only a handful of certified Criminal Trial Attorneys in Pensacola - which is why I chose him, having never been in any sort of situation concerning the law, other than one speeding ticket, prior to this event. I would certainly recommend him.

I needed a lawyer 14 years ago for some trouble I'd gotten myself into with my drinking. I wanted to straighten out my legal issues, but also wanted to straighten out my life. That would demand I adopt a lifestyle based upon rigorous honesty. My wife and I picked Stephen Cobb to represent me, not only because of his stellar reputation as an attorney, but because of his principles, which has inspired me to remain true to my own.

Mr Cobb came unprepared! After investing my savings to help my son get probation dropped Mr Cobb really didn't know much! I spoke to his secretary Janice life saver trying to find out what was what upon showing up at the court room I still wasn't sure who Mr Cobb was. He disappeared to council with my son for 10 min had no clue my name or my son. This should have been a closed case. Son did everything court asked him to do paid all court cost drug court even had a letter signed by the Judge who had him in her session. All good. I feel Mr Cobb doesn't get along with State Attorneys either. Sorry Mr Cobb I feel you owe me some money back

My significant other actually started the process of hiring Mr. Cobb, so his office actually contacted me. Though I felt quite bewildered by my circumstances at the time, the attention to detail provided by Mr. Cobb himself, his staff, his website, and the subsequent information I gained from his recommended media helped me tremendously in a time of great doubt.
Mr. Cobb's very good at what he does, and I was given that impression from the start. He and his staff helped return my girlfriend back home, my confidence, and my life back to normal. No more anxiety, trouble, or doubt. Just mental and emotional restitution. A special thank you to Ms. Janice for her kind nature and care. If you need legal advice, visit Mr. Cobb's website for information or contact him directly, I highly recommend it. A top level individual who can be summed up in one word: Professional.

If you messed up, you are probably Googling anything you can relating to your issue, and there is no doubt you came across this web page in search for a lawyer. At least I did, so when I saw a ten out of ten rating I certainly figured this was the attorney I needed to help me. After all was said and done, I want to make a couple things clear. First, if I did not get an attorney, I would of ended up in jail most likely. Second, I can not give this attorney more then 2 stars.
I made a bad decision in life, I needed legal representation. As stated above, I Googled and researched and tried to figure out at as much as I could, about what exactly I was up against. I also recognized I needed an attorney, and saw Stephen Cobb's profile on this website. I saw the high rating and decided this was the attorney I wanted. I immediately called his office and scheduled a free consultation, in which I talked to Mr. Cobb. I appreciated his honesty and candidness with the details surrounding my case. The free consultation is good to have.
After I hired this attorney, I never once spoke to him again. He never emailed me, he never called or talked to me in anyway, nor did we have any face to face meetings, even at the courthouse. All the work was accomplished by his secretary (who is amazing and worked extremely hard for me, answered all my calls and answered my questions the best she could, and if she did not know an answer she would get the information and call me back. Kudos to Janice.) Mr. Cobb utilized his co-council for my case, and I was able to get in touch with that attorney, but only if I made the effort to contact them first. However, after we did talk, I felt confident and reassured by the co-council.
The court date was the first time I met face-face with any attorney, and that was Mr. Cobb's co-council. The co-council and I talked about our options and after meeting the judge, were able to come to an ideal plea. It was quick, painless (considering the circumstances) and after an hour we parted ways. And that is where the majority of my dealings with this attorney end, and frustrations begin.
I have had issues with the DMV regarding hardship license renewals. I would like to talk about this, and include it in my review because this is what seems "shady" about Mr. Cobb in my opinion. After trying to renew my hardship license, ( a license suspension was part of my strife in this case) the DMV told me I could not for a month because I never showed at my first court appearance. However, I was told by (well, the secretary told me.. remember, I never said a word to Mr. Cobb after he was hired.) the secretary that I did not have to show, and we would be given a new court date. Fast forward time, and now because of some kind of miscommunication, I was not able to get a hardship license for a month. Calling back to Mr. Cobb's secretary, his excuse was I needed to complete DUI school before the original temporary license expired, like he said. I would like to point out this is false, he never once even talked to me.. how could he have told me to perform DUI school prior to renewing my hardship license?
Before this becomes "he said, she said", let me say I have no one to blame about this besides myself. But let me tell you, if I dropped 5k on an attorney, and this is what I got - I am extremely dissatisfied. Yes, he kept me out of jail, but who is to say any other attorney couldn't of done that, for much cheaper cost? Maybe another attorney would have actually spoken to their client who paid good money for representation, and would have had the foresight to mention everything that needed to be accomplished for a hardship license, court date appearances, etc. Maybe DUI cases are too mundane, regular, or predictable, but I did not ever feel confident in this attorney throughout this process. I would not recommend Mr. Cobb. You will get an attorney that will not speak to you, and pay a small fortune.

Mr. Cobb was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He has extensive knowledge concerning Brain Imaging Scans. I have a family member who has had a serious drug problem for many years nothing worked, until I found Mr. Cobb. His knowledge, experience, and honesty has made a tremendous difference in this case. I normally do not have such a wonderful experience with lawyers, until now.
