Mr. Coleman handled my criminal case on short notice. He was very well prepared, displaying an expert knowledge of the law and, most importantly for me, knew the local court systems and how to manage my case. He is very well respected in the courts. I could not have hoped for better representation.
i have had a 14 year relationship with Attorney Coleman covering many issues - real estate, civil actions, tax assessment ,power of attorney, estate and will concerns.... and in each and every situation he has given me the best advice and guidance . He has been the only person who has been able to cut thru the often highly charged emotions that accompany my various legal problems and steered me clearly to make the correct decisions. His intelligence is remarkable and his incisive rhetoric is a rare talent that gives him the ability to clarify every issue that needs to be addressed . He does not waste your time ( or his...) and he gets things done efficiently and correctly every time. In effect , he is the only lawyer you would need for most legal issues , and when he feels you would be better served by someone with more expertise, he does not hesitate to refer you ( and continue to assist you in the process) . I consider my self fortunate, on many levels , to have met and worked with Attorney Coleman .
I used Chris as my lawyer during the time I owned a small retail business. The advice and counsel he offered me as a business owner was superb. Chris is not only a brilliant attorney he's also a common sense, down-to-earth, business person. He could speak legalese as well as P&L. During the time I owned the business I did encounter a few situations that required Chris to act upon my behalf legally ... and he did so masterfully & quickly. He respected me as a person and a business owner. I'm now in the stages of forming a new company and I, of course, went back to Chris to engage him as my lawyer. But after hearing about the type of business I'm attempting to start-up Chris steered me to another lawyer with the particular expertise I'll need to get my business going and to keep it safe - he simply had my best interest as his guide. Superb lawyer, great guy!
I have engaged Mr. Coleman on a number of occasions for various legal matters ranging from family Wills, setting up corporations, real estate purchases, and corporate contracts. I found him to be expert, extremely responsive and compassionate. I have recommended his services to my friends and family, and they too have had like experiences. I typically don't provide feedback on sites like this, but I also don't typically don't find such quality services. I can recommend Mr. Coleman without hesitation.
I've worked with Chris on several real estate transactions from 2004 until now (2009) and continue to do so. He is the most helpful and responsive attorney I've ever worked with.
Chris had represented my wife on two different occasions and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. His knowledge and understanding of the deal was extremely insightful and knowledgeable.
Chris provided me with excellent service over a 4-year period. He distilled complex documents to the essential issues for me to understand. His technical knowledge, practical experience and local relationships have been very valuable.
