When we first opened our law office in neighboring Forysth County, Cherokee County was a part of the Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit so we shared such things as judges and judicial services; now, the circuits have split, but we continue to maintain a very active practice preparing and filing Georgia Mechanics and Materialman’s liens and making payment bond claims in Canton, Ballground, Waleska, Woodstock and throughout Cherokee County. In fact, through our two offices and virtual law firm, we advise and protect our clients throughout metro Atlanta and all of Georgia.
The Cobb Law Group is not a “general practice” law office; in fact, all we do is construction law with a focus on meeting the needs of general contractors, specialty trade subcontractors, and equipment and building material suppliers. This is beginning to be referred to as “Subcontractor Law”. Cherokee County, a part of the metropolitan Atlanta-area has a bustling economy and a robust construction market. Consequently, national firms, regional subcontractors and local “mom-and-pop” contractors rely upon our experience, professionalism and our knowledge for all their construction law needs in Georgia.
With its small town charm and its big-city amenities, Canton, Georgia has seen a great deal of growth stretching from Lake Allatoona to Woodstock to Waleska and Ballground. The construction of businesses and residences need proper legal guidance for construction contract drafting, negotiation and interpretation. For those who have provided materials or services but haven’t received payment, you may have the right to file a Claim of Lien against the real estate or make a claim against the surety. We can help you enforce your rights expeditiously and economically. Contact us today if you need help collecting money owed to you on a construction project!
Most construction professionals work in multiple locations–this is particularly true in the metro-Atlanta area as you may have projects going on in Fulton, Cobb,Cherokee and Gwinnett Counties simultaneously. You could engage the services of a construction lawyer in each, but it makes sense to have one law firm which is centrally located that can advise you on jobs in the metro area as well as north Georgia and south Georgia as well. Since all we do is practice contruction law from our multple offices, we can help you. How can we help?
- contract drafting, review and negotiation (including AIA contracts, ConsensusDocs, etc.)
- per-construction statutory notices including Notices of Commencement and Notices to Contractor/Notices to Owner
- Interim and Final Releases and Waivers
- Affidavits of Nonpayment
- preparation and filing of Materialmen’s Liens
- Miller Act and Georgia Little Miller Act claims

- construction lien foreclosures and enforcement
In short, we help our clients anyway that we can with their Georgia construction law needs. If you have legal needs or any questions regarding Georgia’s lien or bond statutes, please feel free to contact us today.
