Daytona Attorney Elected to Statewide Post
DAYTONA BEACH — Cobb Cole attorney Katherine Hurst Miller was sworn in on June 26 as president-elect of the Florida Bar's young lawyers division, the Daytona Beach law firm announced.
When Miller becomes president of the division next year, it will be the first time the statewide association of attorneys under 36 or in their first five years of practice will be led by a lawyer from the Seventh Circuit, which consists of Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns counties, according to a news release from Cobb Cole.
"I want to be a great ambassador for the Seventh Circuit — Daytona Beach, specifically — and bring some attention to the area,” Miller said.
Miller, who turned 34 this month, was voted in to become president-elect of the Young Lawyers Division in January. She has been an attorney with Cobb Cole since 2006 and a partner with the firm since 2013. She and Robert "Bert" Wohn of the New Smyrna Beach law firm Wright & Casey are the lone representatives on the board from Volusia County. Miller said the board meets eight times a year at different locations throughout the state.

Cobb Cole Donates to CLSMF to Help the Neediest of the Central Florida Community Attain Access to Justice
Top ranked Central Florida law firm Cobb Cole joined the Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida’s (CLSMF) Sustaining Law Firm campaign by donating $5,950 to support their work to provide legal aid in Central Florida. The donation is the largest Sustaining Law Firm contribution received by a regional firm through this campaign to date. The funds will help extend the reach of CLSMF to provide services to residents who are battling domestic violence, fighting for a proper education for their disabled children, attempting to save their homes from foreclosure or simply trying to keep food on their tables.
Cobb Cole has been providing civil legal services since 1925. With offices in Daytona Beach and Deland, the firm provides services in employment, business law, real estate, tax, land development and more.
The firm has a long history of supporting Central Florida’s communities. Harold Hubka, a partner at Cobb Cole, currently serves on the Board of Directors of CLSMF.
It takes considerable resources to deliver legal aid services the residents of Central Florida each year. Since the need is great and resources are limited, CLSMF relies on the financial support of local businesses and law firms.
