Overcoming impediments of her own - stuttering, blindness, tuberculosis, and cancer - and roadblocks from those who refuse to accept a woman as an attorney, McCombs relied upon two things for success: an abiding faith and a devotion to work.

Currently serving as a Senior Superior Court Judge for the State of Georgia, McCombs looks back at her life and remarks, If you live long enough you begin to regret it.
