He also drafts probate court petitions and represents clients in probate court.
Cobb has experience in the drafting and implementation of sophisticated wealth transfer planning techniques, including complex wills, generation-skipping trusts, life insurance trusts, intentionally defective grantor trusts (IDGTs), grantor retained annuity trusts (GRATs), Tennessee Investment Services Trusts (TISTs), and other estate planning instruments.
