Excellent attorney
I have worked professionally with many attorneys. Britt is outstanding. I was one of the first in the state to be prosecuted under the "super drunk" laws. I blew a .29 yikes. I got time served 1 day and 72 hours community service and 12 months probation. I paid $800. Outstanding result from a knowledgable an very professional attorney.

One of the Best
Britt Cobbs has proven herself to be an exceptional attorney, particularly in light of her handling of a legal matter in which I was involved. During the course of working together, she demonstrated a high level of proficiency and expertise in her field. One aspect of Ms. Cobbs' work that stood out to me was her ability to handle my complex situation with professionalism and poise. Moreover, Ms. Cobbs took the time to carefully explain each step of the process to me, ensuring that I had a clear understanding of what was happening. This approach helped put me at ease during what could have been a stressful and overwhelming experience. In summary, I cannot recommend Britt Cobbs highly enough. Her skill, dedication, and professional demeanor make her an outstanding attorney who truly puts her clients first.

Cannot thank you enough.
Britt Cobb responded to my inquiry almost immdiately and the next day she was representing me. Fantastic to work with. She listened to every question I had and was explaining how things worked on the prosecuting a defense side the entire way. Not only did I feel that she really had the knowledge to handle my case, the best part about my experience with Britt was the emotional support, and peace of mind throughout the case. I was extremely stressed about my situation and talking with Britt really made me feel that i still had control over the situation and my life. Britt was always available when I needed her and, was consistently friendly and professional, and though my case was short and low paying, I knew she still put all the energy needed to help me into her work. Once again I can't thank you enough Britt!

Exceptional attorney
Ms. Cobb recently represented me on a matter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was always available to take my questions and carefully walked me through the process. I could tell she was very prepared to handle my case. As a result, she was able to secure a much needed dismissal on my behalf. I would highly recommended her.

Complex financial transactions
The case involved the issue of ownership of funds in a garnishment proceeding involving a government debt dated to 1998. Specifically an inheritance, not intended for the garnishee was seized, inappropriately was the opinion of garnishee. Complex financial transactions was made more complex by the garnishment arm of the government. However the case ended better than expected with a settlement that exceeded expectations, great work by attorney Cobb.
