My name is Stephen G. Cobb and I have practiced criminal defense law since July 2, 1990.
I opened my own criminal defense law firm on October 1, 1997. In August of 2002 I was officially certified as a criminal law specialist by the Florida Bar.
My Avvo "10 Supreb" Rating is actually not very important. Board Certification is what the legal profession uses to rate lawyers in Florida. Less than 1% of the lawyers in Florida are officially Bar Certified as specialists in criminal law, and almost 90% of lawyers attempting to pass the certification exam the last time it was given, failed.
Becoming a Board Certified Specialist is hard.
So, what kinds of cases have a handled?
Name ten criminal charges off of the top of your head, and I've probably handled every one of them more than once or twice.
Whether you want to just beat the case or cut your losses, I can help you. Just give me a call at 850-651-656.
My staff has been instructed to be prepared for your call.
This means that Lisa or Janice will ask you some questions so that a report can be prepared for me before we speak. Then you and I will speak and it helps a great deal if you also watch the short video in on my website's home page, CobbLawFirm.com. Thank you.
