Georgia Construction Lawyer Mark Cobb started the firm in Atlanta in 1992 on the principle that construction professionals deserved to have responsive, knowledgeable attorneys meeting their legal needs efficiently and cost-effectively. Since that time, our firm has grown but our values have not.  We apply our same diligent work ethic to our large, national suppliers and to mom-and-pop special trade subcontractors.  If you have a project going on in Decatur, DeKalb County or anywhere in Georgia, please contact us today.
