I hired Gerry to help me during my divorce. He will only work if money is placed in an advanced trust fund. If you cannot come up with the money he will not proceed. He is knowledgeable, but his billing is to the second so every question is COSTLY!!!!

I would first advise anybody who can avoid dealing with the legal system period, to do so. No matter how good your attorney is, it is no fun. With that being said, if you need to go with an attorney, Gerry is a very good choice. His guidance kept me from going to court, at least up until this point. He was understanding, knowledgeable, and was really good about helping me keep my emotions in check. If I am so unfortunate to need legal representation again in the future, I would not hesitate returning to Gerry.

Gerry was recommended to me by a good friend and I have worked with him for nearly six years now. When I first came to him I was unfamiliar with the legal processes, fearful and anxious. Gerry has always taken the time to explain the legal proceedings and various courses of action available to me, kept me aware of any new developments and whenever possible allay my distresses.
Divorce, Child Custody/Support and (in my case) the numerous subsequent battles are no small matters! These things can take years to untangle and resolve. It's a heart wrenching process because ultimately I have had to let a judge have final say over my child's well being. With so much on the line I have been extremely fortunate to have Gerry as my attorney. He is a knowledgeable, meticulous, powerful counselor in court, as well as a compassionate, sympathetic humanitarian. These qualities combined are extraordinary and rare. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerry Coggin to anyone needing a Divorce and Family Law Attorney.

Do not hire this attorney. I hired him for my initial divorce and while we did complete an order he called me at all hours of the night leaving voice messages stating very inappropriate things. I don't think he was all that good of an attorney either. There are much better and more professional people in charlotte to consider.

Mr. Coggin has handled my daughter's divorce since 11/15/11, and we still fail to have a final outcome for her regarding child custody, child support, and equitable distribution of assets. My husband and I have met with him and had teleconferences with him and our daughter. He is arrogant, lacks compassion and patience, and is oftentimes condescending. He has dragged this process out and refused to continue representing our daughter without sizeable "trust account" balances. We have spent $40,000, but our daughter has not been treated with empathy and respect.

I had a complex divorce and custody case. Gerry has handled it perfectly and the results of the case were even better than originally expected. He is tough in court when he needs to be, but also works to settle and find solutions before judges are involved. I am extremely happy with Gerry Coggin and Coggin Law!

I would highly recommend Gerry Coggin and I have. I was fortunate to find him first try in the sea of attorneys that Charlotte has to offer. He's simply the best. He's straight forward, honest, knowledgable and dedicated. My favorite attribute is he will not tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear. He is dedicated to his customers and will keep you informed.

I have been a client for three years. Mr. Coggin skillfully directed me through the court system, being sensitive to the needs of me as a mother and the children.
He's the most skilled attorney in Charlotte.
