Since we are real Georgia lawyers helping real people who haven’t been paid for their work, we are able to offer our mechanics liens, payment bond claims, and construction contract drafting services throughout the state which provides our clients with many advantages. With decades of experience helping contractors in Central and Middle Georgia, our clients rely on us to help them with all of their construction law needs.
With a physical office in metro-Atlanta and another one in South Georgia, we represent all types and sizes of companies. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies as well as Mom & Pop subcontractors; we represent many general contractors, but the vast majority of our clients are either specialty trade subcontractors or building material suppliers shipping their products to Georgia.
What We Do
For more than 20 years, the Cobb Law Group has excelled in its statewide practice in Georgia construction law with an emphasis on filing materialmen’s liens, mechanic’s liens, and construction liens as well as enforcing payment bond claim rights, Miller Act and Little Miller Act litigation, business & corporate law and commercial collections for the construction industry. We represent numerous businesses, material suppliers, specialty subcontractors, general contractors, and others in the field throughout Georgia.
We are not general practitioners; instead, we focus our practice towards those in the construction industry. Our firm represents clients in all Georgia state and federal courts in the preparation and filing of mechanics’ liens; perfecting, enforcing and foreclosing upon materialmen’s liens; making claims against payment & surety bonds, and all aspects of construction litigation related to materialmen’s liens and payment bond enforcement.
So, what makes the lien and payment bond attorneys at the Cobb Law Group different?
We are Leaders in our Field:
Since 1992, construction law has been our firm’s focus, and we have been privileged to publish extensively on the subject–from online articles to books–and we have addressed most of the common issues impacting Georgia’s construction industry particularly those related to lien rights and enforcement and Miller Act claims (including Georgia’s Little Miller Act claims). In addition, we regularly speak at seminars and symposiums throughout Georgia. We have led panel discussions in clients’ conference rooms, presented to a national group of construction attorneys, led educational seminars on lien and bond rights in Georgia, and we have been instructors at continuing education seminars. As if that is not enough, some of our attorneys have taught in area university business and MBA programs including teaching construction law basics! If you want lawyers who are respected in their field of construction contracts, Georgia materialmen lien law, and payment bond law, please contact us today.
We Pioneered the Concept of Subcontractor Law in Georgia:
Being a leader in the field means setting yourself apart from the pack. Mark Cobb has been instrumental in leading the way for subcontractors and suppliers in Georgia. He was there at the institution of Georgia’s Statutory Construction Notice Scheme and he developed the footprint used by many notice services today (in fact, we represent two national construction notices services!) More importantly, Mark was a contributor–the only contributor from Georgia–in a 2014 book published by the American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry which established “Subcontractor Law” as a unique “specialty” within construction law.
We have Filed 1000s of Successful Materialmen’s Lien Claim and Payment Bond Claims (Miller Act) in Virtually every County in Georgia:
By using technology and having two real offices, we have prepared and filed more liens under Georgia’s Mechanics and Materialman’s Lien Statutes than we could ever count. Most of our clients rely on us for all of their lien and bond claims throughout the State of Georgia. Using our state-wide services, we build strong relationships with our clients, we develop custom strategies for accomplishing their goals, and we can take lien and bond claims from inception (filing the claim of lien or making the bond claim), filing suit to enforce lien rights, materialmen lien foreclosure actions or post-judgment collection. We do it all for our clients!
We Understand All Aspects of Construction Collections:
Although our focus is on using the benefits of liens and bond claims for our client, that’s not all we do, and that’s not all you need. Most of our clients have multiple collection options including contract claims, materialmen’s lien claims, private surety claims, claims under Georgia’s Prompt Payment Act (or the federal version), and collections on account. Knowing this areas as well as we do allow you to know all of your options, weigh the cost-benefit of each option, and reduce overall attorney fees. Because this is all we do, we are not reinventing the wheel–let our experience benefit you and contact us today.
We are a Small, Personal Law Firm with a Proven Track Record:
We’re small, and we like it that way. Our clients value the personal attention we bring to every matter; we know our clients, we learn their expectations, and we can customize our services to meet their unique needs. Our firm has a culture based upon honesty to ourselves and clients, and provide the highest-quality representation at fair, reasonable fees.
