I am 60 years old and have been practicing law in Georgia since 1981. I am married with three adult children and three grandchildren. I went to Hapeville High School and graduated from College Park High School. I have a B.B.A. from Georgia State University. After college I spent time in the Army and then decided to go to law school. I received my Juris Doctor degree from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon in 1981. I lived and worked in Hapeville for several years and we then moved south to Lake Jackson which is about half way between Jackson and Monticello. I practice family law, wills and trust and personal injury law throughout the metro area. I maintain offices in Monticello and Forest Park. My Forest Park office is located in an apartment complex that I own in order to reduce overhead  and keep your fees me for a free consultation.

Wonderful representation and communication throughout my uncontested divorce.

Family Attorney | Jul 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Being an avid contributor to the Avvo network myself, I have had the pleasure of observing Mr. Cobb's work. Unlike some other attorney who provide brief replies to peoples questions, Mr. Cobb always takes the time to provide insightful and substantive responses to peoples concerns. More importantly, the responses he provides evidence the fact that he is well experienced in his field and I certainly hold him in high regard. Georgia is certainly lucky to have a practioner of Mr. Cobb's caliber."
Family Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Other
"Mr. Cobb is a frequent contributor to the Avvo community. I have had the privilege of reading many of his answers, being a fellow family law attorney, and it is refreshing to see such insightful and helpful comments given without any financial incentive. Avvo is a great resource for people seeking to be pointed in the right legal direction and attorneys like Mr. Cobb are the reason for it."
Family Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Other
"I endorse this lawyer's work for family law matters in Georgia. I am admitted to practice in Washington and New York States. I am familiar with Mr. Cobb only through his AVVO listing, AVVO Legal Guides and Answers to AVVO Questions. As a retired Army JAG Lt. Col., I appreciate his record of Army service and know that his military clients will appreciate his experience. In my own practice I have a significant number of military clients with interstate and international child custody issues. This is an area of special interest to me, and I have written AVVO Legal Guides on the Hague Convention and Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. Like Mr. Cobb, I have received a high rating from clients and other attorneys, so I understand the significance of this honor. AVVO reports that he has no record of professional discipline, despite running a busy family law practice and being licensed for almost 30 years. Based on this record, I am sure that his clients will be well served"
Family Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Cobb takes the time to address the tough questions. With almost thirty years of experience, he possesses the combination of family law experience and wise counsel. After reading his Avvo responses, I appreciate the service he is providing to those in need of legal direction. When it is time to retain an attorney, these are the qualities I would seek."
Family Attorney | Jul 29
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Cobb consistently provides counsel that is straightforward and helpful. Although it is often necessary to retain an attorney to fully resolve the issues, Mr. Cobb provides information to get the person on the right track, and does so in a caring and professional manner."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Jul 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Anyone with the patience and knowledge of attorney Cobb with respect to domestic relations work deserves a great deal of credit. I'm glad attorney Cobb is in GA and I'm up in New England because to the extent that we have overlapping practice areas, attorney Cobb is a formidable competitor."

"I endorse this lawyer's work. I have read his answers to questions on Avvo.com and his answers are always concise and comprehensive. There is much to be learned from this attorney's expertise in Divorce Law."
