Wonderful experience with Patrick. He took my traffic ticket case through and got it dismissed without my headaches. Really recommend him.
I would like to thank Patrick for helping me out from the traffic violation -missing red light ticket. I am based out of Virginia and had travelled to California for work. During my stay in California , I mistakenly went past the yellow turning red traffic light for which I had received an traffic violation ticket. Patrick took up my case and helped me from this situation, while I was away back in Virginia. I definitely recommend him for this professionalism,knowledge and other factors. He kept me informed about the case proceedings. Many Thanks Patrick and thanks Avvo for helping me find Patrick.
I had multiple traffic tickets that I neglected before going on an overseas work assignment, and Patrick resolved the whole situation. He called up the traffic courts, set up trial dates, and he spoke on my behalf in court. He was communicative about what details he needed from me and he kept me informed about everything throughout the process. If you're looking for a thoughtful, hard-working lawyer with a positive attitude, I recommend Patrick.
Last year I was stopped because I was driving while on my phone. What I didn't realize, that due to an unpaid previous ticket and an address change, my license had been suspended.
I was facing a misdemeanor driving on suspended with a hefty fine and points on my record.
Patrick handled the matter from start to finish, and kept me in the loop constantly. Ultimately, he was able to have the charges reduced so that there would be no impact on my driving record, and had the fines reduced dramatically. The only fines I had to pay was my original speeding ticket that was originally owed to Mendocino County and the fine for driving while using a mobile device. He was professional, honest, and his fees were reasonable- he even took time to explain how his fee structure worked, and was flexible with how I could pay him. For all traffic and criminal matters, I would recommend Patrick to friends and family
Patrick has been my attorney for a while now and is extremely knowledgeable, professional, thorough and attentive. He is well versed in the law making him a great choice for a wide variety of legal issues.
Patrick Coughlin is an extremely knowledgable, affordable, and well connected bay area attorney. He helped me avoid a hefty traffic fine and all I had to do was basically email him once. He kept me aprised of the procedings and I recieved a very favorable outcome. I would reccomend Patrick to any friend, colleague, or family member who needs a legal issue resolved in the Bay Area. In fact, if I ever require the services of a lawyer again Patrick will be the first and only one I'll call.
Patrick handled 3 separate traffic tickets for me. His results and follow through were outstanding. He handled everything. I only had to email him the information and was able to pay his fee with a credit card over the phone. Patrick will be my "go to" person for any legal help in the future.
