Frederick L. Kobb


Frederick Kobb has been handling family law cases for over 25 years, and built the Family Law practice at Wright, Constable & Skeen.

Mr. Kobb prides himself in providing quality service to clients through evaluating circumstances and identifying the best approach for creating viable solutions. He enjoys the area of practice in that the work provides the ability to really help those in times of need, and also build personal and professional relationships with a variety of people.

He is described as an assertive attorney who can also work well collaboratively with other attorneys. In all cases, Mr. Kobb is accessible to his clients and keeps his clients well informed throughout the representation. He handles all types of family law matters, including separation and divorce, custody, access, child support, spousal abuse, adoption, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and adult guardianships.

In addition to his family law practice, Mr. Kobb has considerable experience defending railroads in FELA litigation. He also handles personal injury matters, both bringing claims on behalf of the injured party and defending claims against parties alleged of negligence. Mr. Kobb is available to meet with clients in the firm’s Baltimore City oor Towson office, both of which have free parking and are conveniently located in close proximity to the court houses.

Mr. Kobb frequently speaks about his areas of practice at various professional groups such as the National Business Institute.
