Adam B. Edgecombe


Adam B. Edgecombe is a partner at Cobb Gonzalez, PA, having joined the firm in January 2023.  Adam’s practice is devoted to commercial and business litigation, with a focus on construction law, real estate law, and business law.  Adam’s clients include general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers, property developers, property managers, landlords, homeowners, commercial real estate tenants, and numerous small businesses; Adam also currently represents numerous roofing contractors throughout Florida and is very familiar with that industry and the legal and business challenges they face. 

Adam frequently represents his clients from a transactional standpoint as well and drafts, reviews, and negotiates construction contracts, commercial leases, and other contracts for his clients.  Adam is also experienced in dealing with contractor licensure issues, having learned that area of the law from the firm’s managing partner, Chris Cobb, who is Adam’s former boss and mentor and who previously served as the Chairman of Florida’s Construction Industry Licensing Board.

Adam understands that most individuals and many businesses do not plan or budget for litigation and that involvement in a legal matter is stressful and costly for his clients.  Adam prides himself on being easy to work with and addressing his clients’ needs in a realistic and practical manner, often finding a way to resolve a given dispute in a manner that saves his clients time and money and reduces the stressful nature of litigation for them.

Adam is a proud (almost) native of Jacksonville, having lived here for over 40 years.  He grew up in the San Jose neighborhood and graduated from The Bolles School, where he attended from kindergarten through 12th grade, and he also holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from The University of Florida.  Adam received his J.D. from Florida Coastal School of Law in 2009, where he graduated in the top 12% of his class and was a member of editorial board of the Florida Coastal Law Review.

In 2021, Adam was appointed by the mayor to the City of Jacksonville’s Public Nuisance Abatement Board, a quasi-judicial board that handles problematic commercial properties within the City of Jacksonville.  Adam is also a longtime member and supporter of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, having served on its ImpactJax board for several years and currently sitting on the board for the Chamber’s Downtown Council.  Adam is also a member of the Chester Bedell Inn of Court, the Jacksonville Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors, and the Jacksonville Bar Association.  Adam currently sits on the Board of The Bolles School Alumni Association as well.  Since 2012, Adam has been a member of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners, serving as an author for Florida Bar exam essays and multiple-choice questions, as well as a grader of the Florida Bar exam.

In his free time, Adam and his family can often be found watching Gators sports, at the beach, by the pool, or riding bikes and socializing with friends in their Miramar/San Marco neighborhood.
