Most criminal defense lawyers have what is known as a General Practice. A general practitioner handles several different types of law at one time. The Cobb Criminal Defense Law Firm only handles Florida criminal defense matters and Florida criminal lawyer Stephen G. Cobb is a recognized specialist certified by The Florida Bar Association.

Board Certification is important: All criminal defense lawyers are allowed to advertise, but only Florida Bar certified attorneys are allowed to identify themselves as "Florida Bar Board Certified," an "expert" or as a "specialist" in criminal law. Board Certification is the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar Association for a lawyer's competence and experience. UPDATE: Mr. Cobb was recertified as an expert in December of 2007.

NOTE: Do not be fooled by what I believe are no more than advertising gimmicks such as "AV Rated" or "Super Lawyer" claims. Neither of these gimmicks require the lawyers rated to have either specific trial experience in a given practice area nor do they require seriously difficult mastery exams. A lawyer is either a Florida Bar Association certified specialist or not.
