I'm a Maryland native, having been a member of the Baltimore Washington community my entire life, except for 3 years in law school at the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle, Pa. campus. My life has always revolved around family, friends, church and academics of one form or another.   

I am the eldest of four children. My Mother, my 2 younger sisters and their families live in Baltimore County, Maryland. My Mom, the youngest of 7 children, grew up on a tobacco farm in Prince Georges County. My Dad, now deceased many years, was a corporate executive. He was born in Queens, New York. My younger brother Danny died unexpectedly at age 27.      

My husband Web passed unexpectedly in January 2016. That experience has made me very sensitive to my clients estate planning needs. I make sure my clients understand the estate planning and probate process and that their documents accurately reflect their planning wishes. Losing a loved one is hard enough. It gives me great satisfaction to know I help make sickness and loss of loved ones a little easier to bear by providing my clients complete and accurate documents tailored to their individual needs.   

I am Mom to two "twenty something" children, my son Christopher who is "finding himself" in Cheyenne Wyoming, after graduating from Skyline High School, Front Royal, Va. graduate where he was Co-Captain of his varsity soccer team, and my daughter, Savannah, who lives in Edgewater, Md. 

I love meeting new clients, interacting with current clients and facilitating successful resolution of various estate planning, education/special education and related family dynamics issues.

I have many interests and hobbies, including running (which has become "jogging"), biking, swimming and horseback riding. I play a little guitar and I "appreciate" many different music genres. I enjoy travelling. I love to read, write and learn about estate planning, business succession planning, education/special education and motivational issues. I am constantly seeking and implementing ways to improve my legal skills and legal service to my clients and to the community at large.

I have a particular passion for special needs and disability issues, including Special Needs Trusts with strong commitment to protect families and children with special education and special needs issues. My own personal and professional experience includes substantial special education and special needs issues. I am a very proud Mom to my 2 children adopted from St. Petersburg, Russia.    

The business philosophy of Cox Law Group can be summarized in a recent quote from Jon Gordon, Author of "The Energy Bus": "The greatest marketing strategy of all is to do something great for another person." That is this law firm’s goal for each and every Cox Law Group client.

Almost to the finish line
We retain Ms Cox and her law firm after a bad experience with a different firm. Ms Cox is very black and white ...meaning she says what needs to be said. We came into the case with Ms Cox in the last ending with very little light. Game should have been over but we are still swinging.
Response from Linda Cox October 1, 2021
Thank you "Ms. T"; it's been a pleasure representing you "Mr. S". We have been able to put you in a better place. I look forward to helping you close out the pending litigation as soon as reasonably possible. Then you can return to enjoying your life.

Trust and Estate Planning
I was very fortunate that Linda Cox of the Cox Law Group was recommendated to me. I didn't know what to expect. Ms. Cox is a people person. She was very relaxed, knowledgeable and right away she put me at ease. We went over the worksheet I filled out in detail. She was very thorough and answered all my questions. Ms. Cox puts her clients needs and concens on the forefront, she's very understanding. She offers suggestions and guides you through the process - you don't leave her office wanting. She is a true professional. Ms. Cox and her staff are wondeful people to work with. I highly recommend the COX LAW GROUP. You will not be disappointed.

Estate Planning
I met Mrs. Cox as a referral and it was a home run. Her sincere caring and knowledge of the law made me immediately feel that I had chosen the correct legal counsel. I was happy to find a person with the knowledge and diligence to get the job done. The rapid responsiveness to my needs was really important. I would be happy to refer her again and again . In fact I have send her a referral.

Keep current
I trust Linda to keep me informed as the latest changes from the legislature come down. I want to keep my estate planning up to date.

Linda Cox is a 10+
Linda has been instrumental in helping us think through all of the scenarios to prepare for writing all of our estate documents. She keeps up on the law and changes that can affect me now or in the future. She communicates with us often to see if there have been any significant changes that could impact the current documents. I trust her wholeheartedly with such an important topic - estate planning.

Estate planning.
Linda and her staff were just great. They were very timely, knowledgeable, and efficient. One of the important things about estate planning is the attorney's ability to keep her clients on track during the whole process. Linda managed to do this and, in the end, created the document it will serve us for years to come. Thank you very much.
