Practice areas

I'm a partner with Cobb & Gonzalez, where my practice encompasses a broad spectrum of community association law; real estate development and construction law; and business and commercial litigation matters. I am licensed in both Florida and Georgia and Board Certified in Condominium and Planned Land Development Law by the Florida Bar. I represents various community associations, property owners and developers, handling everything from complex legal issues to day-to-day operational needs. I ensure my association clients are optimizing their assessment revenue, properly enforcing their covenants and restrictions, and protecting their financial interests, legal interests, and property rights.

As an attorney who is Board Certified in Condominium and Planned Land Development Law by the Florida Bar, I am considered an expert and specialist at (1) serving as counsel to community associations, property owners, community association members, sellers, purchasers, developers, lenders, governmental agencies, and investors in matters related to community associations and planned developments; (2) drafting governing documents or their amendments, and preparing filings with governmental agencies that regulate community associations or planned developments; (3) serving in or for governmental agencies which regulate community associations or planned developments; (4) representing parties in construction lien and defect claims; collection of assessment actions, governing document and community association statutory enforcement and dispute actions, and other litigation, arbitration, and mediation in matters relating to community associations or planned developments; and (5) the planning, development, construction and financing of condominium and planned development communities.

Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a business major graduating from the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business, earning dual degrees in Finance and Business Management. I worked for nearly a decade within the financial industry for two Fortune 500 companies, and consider those experiences invaluable to my business and commercial litigation matters. My extensive business background and financial industry knowledge helps me to better serve my corporate clients in matters involving AR collections, business torts, franchising, corporate formation, secured transactions, bankruptcy issues, contract negotiations, and various contractual disputes
My practice areas include the following:

• Condominium Association Law
• Homeowner Association Law
• Real Estate law
• Construction Law
• Business Litigation
• Creditor's Rights and Commercial Collections
• Banking and Lender Liability Law

Thank You Hans Wahl
Recently, actually about three years ago I had a lawsuit brought against me. I didn't know who to turn to. Know one I actually knew, even attorney friends from my church could give me any clear direction. At this point, I prayed that God would help me. This was a potential life-changing event in my life. I then received a letter in the mail from Jimerson & Cobb Law Firm. I felt this letter was a gateway to the answer I was seeking. I then retained Jimerson & Cobb to represent me in this matter. Knowing my time to responding to this lawsuit was nearing its deadline to respond, they went right to work. They responded right away. Throughout my case, I felt the assurance of a seasoned, professional, family atmosphere from the entire firm. I was represented by Hans Wahl who is a very knowledgable professional attorney. He felt my burden and carried it throughout the case. Finally our day came, he as always he was well prepared to take my case to trial. But, before our trial, is mediation (court ordered in all cases), and much to my dismay, while in mediation, he mediated my case with the opposing party who reluctantly gave in to Mr. Hans demands after not giving in to the pressure from their demands. It was a classic case of David vs. Goliath. I was very pleased with the results that Mr. Hans Wahl produced for me. Special thanks goes to Mr. Hans Wahl and Mr. Chris Cobb for representing me and helping to overcome a seemingly impossible situation. God Bless!
