Andrew Cobin focuses on estate, elder and special needs law, helping clients protect their family from the perils of poor planning. Whether sheltering assets from Medicaid spenddown or avoiding the costly and unnecessary administrative proceedings, Andrew helps clients plan while they’re alive and well, and assists families after death and during a disability.
Andrew works with families of all stripes from parents with minor children to the elderly, and from those with modest means to the wealthy. Estate and elder law touches everyone, whether or not they are prepared for it.
Andrew discovered his passion for estate and elder law during law school. He aspired then to open his own practice. However, Andrew decided to heed the call of duty of service to his country in the Navy Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corp. After seven years of active duty, a couple of deployments, and a stint stationed abroad, Andrew and his family decided to return to civilian life so that he could pursue the practice he had always envisioned. After two years as a solo practitioner, Andrew merged his practice to form Brady | Cobin Law Group, PLLC, an estate and elder law practice in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Andrew’s time outside of the office is spent primarily with his family. You can often spot him on Shelley Lake with his wife and children, or at home in and around the barbeque. Physical activity has been a big part of Andrew’s life. A high school wrestler, turned Brazilian ju-jitsu practitioner, turned Russian kettlebell instructor (RKC), if you’re up early enough, you make catch him swinging a heavy kettlebell (or two).
