Doug Coggins has been my attorney for over 5 years. Doug was highly recommended to me when I learned that my attorney of several decades had announced retirement. I have turned to Doug for representation, counsel and advice for general corporate, contract, and real estate law. I have found his work to be of the highest quality and his advice to be invaluable.
Based upon my 40-plus years experience as both a small business owner and real estate investor, I can without reservation recommend Doug Coggins.

Let me start by saying that if it had not of been for Doug Coggins, my career and future welfare could very well be jeopardized. A little while ago I got into some trouble with the Montgomery County PD and received some fairly serious criminal traffic charges. I had never been in this situation before and had no idea where to start. I met Doug under the referral of my parents and after my first visit, I immediately began to feel better. He told me that based on my past record which was pretty clean considering what I was facing and my decent sense personal integrity, the outcome of my case had a very good chance of being favorable. However, he made sure that he did not give me a false sense of hope and reminded me that I was always at the mercy of the court and that he would do everything in his power to help me. Sure enough a few weeks later Doug came through ten-fold. After our initial meeting, he met with the states attorney and was able to negotiate a deal which entailed that my more serious charges would be dismissed if I agreed to perform 24 hours of community service. I met with Doug one more time after that to discuss the details regarding my community service and how it affected my charges specifically. Following that meeting we went to court where Doug and the states attorney presented the details of our agreement before the judge and asked for an extension so that I could complete my community service. I kept in touch with Doug via e-mail letting him know when my community service was done, and a few months later we went back to court and essentially sealed the deal. The serious charges were dismissed, and the points were dropped on the less serious ones pending that I paid the fines. Doug's proficiency and courtroom demeanor were impressive to say the least and I hardly had to tell the judge anything which was very reassuring since I knew he was on top of it. I highly recommend Doug Coggins to anyone who finds themselves in a situation where they need professional guidance and someone who has their back.

Doug has always been available to answer questions to confirm my Instinct is correct. As an owner of a company I do not have a manger to go to for questions and answers.

When starting my new business, Doug severed as my attorney and he provided me with great service. He responded to all my requests in timely manner and the advise he provided allowed me to make the best decision for my business. When it came time to close on a 1.5 million deal, Doug performed exceptionally and I did not have any worries about any legal issues because Doug was my attorney.

As owners of nursing homes, we have some very challenging cases involving aspects of family law, guardianships, collection cases and general litigation. Doug has ably assisted us in a variety of these matters. He is knowledgable not only about the law, but also is able to work through issues in a common sense and economical way.
