    • I recommend Donald Cosley.
    • I hired Donald 6-12 months ago.
    • Donald handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    After being poorly represented by a previous attorney and receiving an unjust conviction Don won an appeal to reopen my case. He got my battery conviction, which is on your record for life, reduced to one year supervision. I couldn't have asked for better representation. He explained the law so that I understood it, was very patient and always optimistic. I would highly recommend Don Cosley.

    I used Mr. Cosley for my divorce matter and I thought he did a superb job!

He was knew the law and I was easily accessable by phone. He got me a better settlement than I had anticipated

    • I do not recommend Donald Cosley.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I used him for a Divorce case. He did a very poor job in negotiations. Did not keep me informed. And, I had to do most of the work including talking to the other Attorney. I would not want any one to go through the pain and anguish I had to endure with this incapable Attorney.
