Trial-Tested Violent Crimes Defense


Serious felony crimes require legal representation from a highly trained and experienced attorney. In order to achieve a favorable outcome, your attorney must understand how to scrutinize evidence, thoroughly examine the legal issues involved in the case and then build an effective strategy. We pledge to give you the representation you need under the most challenging of circumstances.

Cook & Connelly represents clients in criminal defense matters ranging from murder to assault to domestic violence in the Southeast. Established in 1959 by attorneys Bobby Lee Cook and the late A. Cecil Palmour, our firm continues their tradition of excellence as a recognized and trusted source for legal counsel in criminal defense matters involving felonies.

Serious Charges Demand A Serious Defense

Violent crimes such as rape and murder are felony offenses that can carry extremely harsh punishments. If a proper defense is not built for your case from the start, the repercussions could follow you for the rest of your life. If you are facing multiple charges, your attorney must fully understand how to examine evidence, the base of the charge or the arrest, and other external factors that may be involved in your case (such as additional charges).

Our attorneys are highly experienced litigators who have handled a wide range of criminal matters. Bobby Lee Cook has handled more than 250 murder and other criminal cases in 37 states. He has handled criminal cases in South Vietnam and Germany, and has tried a number of courts-martial cases involving violent crimes. He has gained favorable outcomes for nearly 85 percent of his cases, and offers each client the individual representation that he or she deserves.

Now led by grandson Sutton Connelly, our firm features an accomplished group of attorneys who have built strong reputations in their own right. If you value aggressive representation from lawyers with vast legal knowledge, we are your source for legal counsel.
