About me

  Born in Jackson Tennessee, Ms. Cobb grew up primarily in Northern Virginia, but graduated from Pope High School in Marietta, Georgia. After high school she attended Vanderbilt University where she earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. After college she worked for the Wake Forest University Medical School conducting scientific research in the fields of Microbiology and Immunology. After publishing two scientific papers, she decided to attend law school at Wake Forest Law School in Winston-Salem.


 


  At Wake Forest, Ms. Cobb was a member of the Innocence Project and served on the Intellectual Property Law Journal as well as took numerous classes to hone her litigation skills including the Litigation Clinic, Trial Practice and Advanced Trial Practice.


 


After graduating from law school Ms. Cobb returned to her hometown to practice at Spragins, Barnett & Cobb, PLC. There she gained experience in general civil litigation, family law and criminal defense. After almost two years in Tennessee, she decided to return to North Carolina to focus primarily on criminal defense and traffic law at Arnold & Smith, PLLC in Charlotte.
