I retained Kimberly Killebrew from Coker Legal in September of 2014, for a divorce. I met with Kim on a couple of occasions and I requested minimal work to be done by Kim and her team. Over the next few months, I was billed thousands of dollars to simply reply to some emails and file a counter petition. While not being satisfied with results and reviewing my bills, I began to seek alternative council. In doing so, I noticed I was double billed initially for "opening and preparing new client file". Additionally, most of what I was billed for adhered to their billing guidelines, however, being billed for multiple conferences with her legal assistant that I was not aware of as well as billed to perform a motion to withdraw that was not requested were certainly questionable items. I attempted to work with the Coker Legal team, including Duane Coker, to adjust my billing and they did recognize and refund the double billing, but only after I had brought it to their attention. Coker Legal declined to work with me on the other items as they stated it was within their guidelines. While they were within the letter of most of their charges, in consultation with other attorneys in the area, they were not common practice. I cannot recommend anyone at Coker Legal and, if you have already retained them, I encourage you to diligently review your bills.
Duane and his legal team were always available with great knowledge and made a difficult situation a breeze. We got everything we wanted and got the case closed in record time. I would recommend this firm to all!
I worked with Duane concerning Family law. He was very professional and courteous. It's hard to find such an intelligent, well informed lawyer such as Duane who is not condescending. Duane has real “customer focus” skills and made me feel relaxed and well informed about a complex topic. I highly recommend using him.
I moved to Texas in 2001, since then I have used Duane Coker Legal for all our family legal needs. They have always been professional and right on the spot on what to do and how to do it.
I understand there might be another good lawyers in the area but Coker Legal has always exceed my expectations and needed results. Highly recommended.
Duane L. Coker was a pleasure to work with over the course of 2012 and 2013. Mr. Coker commissioned his team to help me in the unfortunate matter of a divorce. I cannot imagine having to go through such an experience without the incredible support and advice he offered. He is very trustworthy, impressibly responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and he kept me informed throughout the process. Through Duane's impeccable leadership, his firm managed my entire case with me being outside of the continental US, making the experience almost a breeze for me. What impressed me the most was his willingness to speak candidly with me and actively brainstorm win-win solutions. I would highly recommend Duane Coker for any of your family law needs. You will not be disappointed with the level and quality of service will receive.
Duane and his team handled my child custody issues very quickly. When I first met with Duane he outlined the options and the how things would proceed after I decided the direction for my case. Duane and his team kept me informed during the process and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend Duane to anyone seeking honest, fair and thorough legal assistance.
Mr. Coker has been my attorney for the last 3 years handling my divorce, enforcement, modification and other issues. He and is staff are an amazing team and are always quick to respond to my questions and concerns. They go above and beyond to ensure you get the best possible result. I will never use another family law attorney again. I refer all my friends and family to them as well!
He is an excellent lawyer I will always use him
I have known Duane Coker for many years and have had to use his services on two separate occasions. On both occasions, Duane's legal counsel has been exemplary and far exceeded my expectations. He is very professional and a class-act attorney who will get results without having to "play dirty". Duane is very sensitive to his client's needs and the circumstances that bring his clients in. I HIGHLY rate this attorney for his skills, compassion, communication and an excellent supporting team he has in place in his office.
I was looking for a lawyer for what I knew was going to be a very difficult divorce. Because I had no other personal referrals, I reviewed the Avvo recommendations and decided to meet with Duane for an initial consultation. During the proceedings, Duane was very professional. He never over stated what the possible outcome could be, presented me with the different options and guided me towards to what I believe was the best possible outcome in a terrible situation. At no time I had to question if he acted in my best interest.
Besides his own skill and his team, he impressed me with the other people he brought into the process to handle custody arrangements and mediation.
I've already recommended Duane to friends and will continue to do so. Even though I hope I will not heve to work with him again, I know where I need to go if the need arises.
