SPECIALIZING IN HELPING SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS WITH ALL THEIR LEGAL NEEDS AND AVOID LEGAL EXPOSURE.
As a member of the legal community for over a decade, I have gained experience in diverse areas of the law, including business law, civil litigation, corporate, employment law, and insurance defense. Currently, my practice focuses on corporate organization and formation; general commercial claims (i.e. breach of contract), employment consulting (i.e., policies and procedures, non compete and non-disclosure matters, overtime issues), landlord/tenant matters (i.e., lease review and negotiation, lease disputes), shareholder and partnership disputes (i.e., breach of fiduciary duty, director/officer liability) business competition claims (i.e., unfair competition, deceptive trade practices) and commercial and consumer fraud. Additionally, my litigation experience gives clients valuable insight into navigating through potential disputes. To that end, I offer an alternative to the traditional in house general counsel and assist small business retain a competitive advantage and maximize profitability while maintaining the ability to react quickly and protect themselves from legal exposure.

Brilliant
I can’t even begin to explain how incredible Melody is. She is a true master of her profession. She’s balanced, educated, and honest in all of her legal council. She’s protected our practice for well over a decade and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Sale of Business
I was lucky enough to have Melody represent me during the sale of my business. From start to finish the process took nearly 6 months and Melody was on top of everything. The buyer retained a very large and well known firm and Melody anticipated almost every move before they made it. She was in another league frankly. Can't recommend her highly enough.

Thank you Melody!
I want to thank Melody and her office for representing me during the sale of my business. I am truly grateful that she was referred to me. I can not imagine having gone through this complex process without her in my corner. I especially appreciated her willingness to explain even the smallest aspects of the transaction so that I would always feel comfortable and informed. She is the definition of "Consummate Professional".

Extremely Effective Attorney
Melody handled a contract dispute for me, and making the task more difficult was an opposing counsel who appeared to be doing the work as a favor to his client, so he was not fully engaged. Melody handled the matter for me efficiently, professionally, and most effectively, and I was able to achieve all of my goals thanks to her. For those of you who doubt these reviews, until a few weeks ago I had never interacted with Melody before, but she was recommended to me by not one, but two of South Florida's best litigators. If you need her services, do yourself a favor and call her.

Excellent corporate law attorney in Boca Raton
Melody has worked with us with contracts, partnerships, and all other areas of corporate and business law. She is extremely bright and at the same time very friendly and easy to work with. She truly enjoys her work and is very positive and enthusiastic. It was a pleasure working with her and she really can get the work cranked out very quickly. We work in health care and she was very quick to pick up what we needed and to be protective of our interests. i would not hesitate to work with her again. She really went over and beyond to help us. Would definitely recommend her strongly.

Owning and operating a mid size firm, as a CEO, that achieves success by serving their clients, requires great individuals to support the mission. The team must share abundant, caring mindsets, while having the intelligence and courage to navigate the necessary challenges that are bound to occur when attempting to deliver on the mission. Melody Cobbe has been the perfect partner for our firm, the past 6 years. as she exudes all of the qualities you would look for in an experienced attorney. She not only cares and protects myself and our firm, she brings a level of professionalism that has placed our firm in the best standing possible.

Dr. Gary Moran, EdD
My wife Pat and I were selling our business after 35 years of operation. We couldn't have entrusted this major life-changing event to a better attorney. I knew that selling a business was much different than selling a home but I had little idea of just how complicated it actually was. Melody Cobbe made it clear and concise and surely minimized risk. Throughout the 6 month process, Melody was proactive, responsive and very easy to work with. When we needed her, she was there quickly. Our concerns were met with interest and understanding. She "held our hands" the whole way and this in the face of Covid-19! No return call, email or text was ever delayed or ignored. No question was ever left without a thorough answer. No follow-up task was ever forgotten. We are very happy with our transaction. Her fee was reasonable; her representation - impeccable. Would we hire Cobbe Law again? You Betcha!

Look nowhere else
I hired Ms. Cobbe during the early stages of what would become a very complicated business acquisition. During the entire process, which would ultimately last nine months, Ms. Cobbe was able to assist with every required step as well as resolving issues with the landlord and sellers attorney. There were many times I felt the transaction would be lost however Ms. Cobbe was able to resolve everything as needed with little to no sacrifice on my end. Ms. Cobbe also replied to calls, texts, or emails almost always within the same business day throughout the entire process which proved to be a very reassuring and helpful attribute as I always had answers and was updated on the process. I am certain that had I not been fortunate enough to hire Ms. Cobbe from the start the business acquisition would not have gone through. I found her to be so impressive that she has now become the recommended business attorney for any potential new owners within our franchise.

We are so lucky to have Melody.
We hired Melody after starting at a big firm and realizing that we were a small fish in a huge pond. Melody's approach was exactly what we needed, she explained everything in simple English and not the legal jargon that caused me more confusion. She met all the timelines and her price was always fair. I love that she truly cares about our business and that we are not just another file on her desk. Also, her network of other lawyers is amazing and they have all demonstrated similar values. Truly thankful to have Melody on our team.

Forever impressed
Ms. Cobbe is an amazing Business attorney. She has written contracts and letters and offered a plethora of advise! Because of her legal guidance my business is growing. She has written the terms of agreement for my website and is trademarking by creation of a blueprint for life mastery. She has reviewed contracts and documents as well. She was a hero when I ran into a glitch with Getty images. Over the years, I have referred numerous people to Melody and all have been wonderfully pleased. She is precise, accurate, knowledgeable, and professional. She has a great reputation in the community. Further, she is very active in the community through charitable and community organizations. I would (and do) recommend Ms. Cobbe for all legal business needs.
