Attorney and firm partner Britt Morton Cobb has been practicing law since 1998. She began her practice in Colorado before relocating to Michigan in 2006. She has worked exclusively as a defense attorney, representing the accused in criminal cases at the trial level — while also representing individuals in licensing matters, immigration matters, and in appeals at both the federal and state court levels. She has handled appeals in the Michigan Supreme Court, the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Colorado Court of Appeals, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Since joining Willey & Chamberlain, Britt’s practice has included a wide variety of trial and appellate work at both the state and federal level. She has handled felony and misdemeanor cases in state courts across Michigan. She has emphasized her federal practice in Michigan, handling everything from serious drug trafficking and fraud offenses to more minor federal offenses.
Britt graduated with a B.A. from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from the University of Denver, where she received a number of awards and was General Editor of the Denver Law Journal. She is a member of the Michigan State Bar, the Criminal Section of the Michigan State Bar, the Colorado Bar Association, the Grand Rapids Bar Association, the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Federal Bar Association. She is admitted to practice in the Colorado and Michigan state courts, as well as federal courts in the Western District of Michigan, the District of Colorado, and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Britt remains active in giving back to the community and recently completed a pro bono for Clemency Project 2014 — launched after Deputy Attorney General James Cole asked the legal profession to provide pro bono assistance to federal prisoners who would likely have received a shorter sentence if they’d been sentenced today. Her primary role involved screening applicants charged with drug crimes and making recommendations to the project’s steering committee as to whether the particular inmate was a candidate for clemency under the policy statements advanced.
