I recently moved to Florida and was pulled over and cited for D.U.I. Mr. Cobb represented me in my defense of this charge. I chose Mr. Cobb because of the amount of time he spent discussing my case pro-bono before I ever even became his client. He took time to discuss all of my options and the probability of my successful defense of the charges before I ever committed to him as a client. He was extremely thorough in my defense and completely on top of everything.
Inside the 10-day appeal window, he was able to get me a temporary driving permit so that I could continue driving, which was critical for my work situation. Additionally, I was able to get my license returned to me in full when he successfully appealed to have my stop suppressed. The hearing concluded that the officer did not have sufficient cause for pulling me over and my license was returned.
Although I won this hearing, it has no bearing on the criminal aspect of the case itself. That is a separate part of the process. Although Mr. Cobb had demonstrated his ability to defend me, I could not use the fact that the hearing for reinstating my license had indicated that the officer didn’t have sufficient reason for pulling me over. I wasn’t weaving in traffic, speeding, or any other moving violation. Basically, I was on the road at 4 a.m. with out of state tags in Destin, and that was all that the officer needed to assume I had been drinking.
Because of my strong evidence in suppressing the stop, I was offered several plea bargains and I choose to accept a plea to a lesser charge the day before I was scheduled for trial. This was completely my decision and Mr. Cobb supported me either way I wanted to go on this. I just didn’t think it was worth the gamble and wasn’t in any position to be rolling the dice. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my representation by Mr. Cobb and although I found him to be a fantastic lawyer, I hope that I never require his services again. But I am gladly referring him as a guy who knows the law and will work with you to all ends to win your case.

My significant other actually started the process of hiring Mr. Cobb, so his office actually contacted me. Though I felt quite bewildered by my circumstances at the time, the attention to detail provided by Mr. Cobb himself, his staff, his website, and the subsequent information I gained from his recommended media helped me tremendously in a time of great doubt.
Mr. Cobb's very good at what he does, and I was given that impression from the start. He and his staff helped return my girlfriend back home, my confidence, and my life back to normal. No more anxiety, trouble, or doubt. Just mental and emotional restitution. A special thank you to Ms. Janice for her kind nature and care. If you need legal advice, visit Mr. Cobb's website for information or contact him directly, I highly recommend it. A top level individual who can be summed up in one word: Professional.

I was falsely accused of a crime that if I had been convicted of I would have been looking at 15 years in prison. Even though I had passed two polygraph tests and had DNA results that proved my innocence, I was still arrested. The judge that had me arrested was not aware of the polygraph test or the DNA results that proved I was innocent. Before I was arrested we were contacted by 2 law firms seeking money. After the arrest this became a high profile case and was in every newspaper and on every radio station within a 100 mile radius.
Even though the prosecuting attorney had 2 polygraph exams, exonerating DNA evidence and records that we were able to obtain proving that the accuser lied, it became clear that the prosecuting attorney would stop at nothing to win their case. In the end Mr. Cobb prevailed and I was found not guilty of the charge.
Not only is he the best attorney I have ever seen, he is the smartest person I have ever met. He conducted himself with professionalism and the highest integrity at all times. Mr. Cobb showed concern for the well being of myself and my family and gave us ways to deal with the stress.
Make no mistake about it, the prosecuting attorney will stop at nothing to convict you and I strongly urge you to have the best legal defense you can get . I believe that is Mr. Cobb!
