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.
Why We Only Handle Certain Types of Legal Matters: When selecting a Georgia construction law firm, it is important to know whether or not the firm has a proven and reliable track record. We do. We are not general practitioners who handle all types of legal cases; instead, we focus our practice in just a few areas of construction law and business law so that everyday we build upon our experience and our legal knowledge in the same niche areas. Take, for example, our understanding and vast experience with the Georgia Mechanics and Materialmen’s Lien Statutes: we have prepared and filed thousands of liens throughout the state of Georgia on behalf of our clients; consequently, we are very familiar with every requirement and deadline needed to enforce your rights–and we understand the exceptions and alternate options when a requirement is missing. In short, we know what to do, and we do it correctly the first time!
We Regularly Work With Other Lawyers: Since we maintain such highly concentrated practice areas as lien law and payment bond claims, other Georgia lawyers frequently consult with us in handling their clients’ matters; in addition, our decades of experience in filing and enforcing liens and payment bonds have allowed us to work with lien and bond attorneys throughout the United States. Thus, if you have a claim in another state or an issue that is outside of our practice areas, we probably have a colleague with whom we have worked previously in that jurisdiction who specializes in that type of law.
What Do You Mean by the Phrase Subcontractor Law? In addition to general business law, our significant practice area is Georgia construction law. Although we represent all types of clients participating in Georgia’s construction industry–project owners, real estate developers, general contractors, specialty subcontractors and material suppliers–many of our construction clients are national manufacturers and material suppliers on Georgia construction projects. In Georgia, a party’s rights vary depending on its relationship to the general contractor or the owner. Those who are second and third tier subcontractors and suppliers have unique obligations and remedies available to them, and only attorneys who are familiar with these nuances can help. Subcontractor Law addresses these unique legal issues, obligations and solutions. In fact, one of our subcontractor law attorneys, Mark Cobb, is co-authoring a book on Subcontractor Law to be published by the American Bar Association in 2014.

Why We Don’t Accept Every Client: The attorney-client relationship is very important to us. In addition to honesty and frankness, our construction law attorneys and staff work very hard to provide you with the best legal representation possible–we are constantly tracking new legislation, case law, and legal theories as well as honing our negotiation, drafting and litigation skills. However, we expect our clients to be equally professional. We only work with clients who are honest, forthright and professional on every level and that includes providing quality labor and materials on their jobsites. This type of relationship greatly improves the likelihood of success of your legal issue and allows us to concentrate on resolving your issues.
