Reliable and Trustworthy Attorney
Samuel Coe represented me on a case this morning. He was very thorough and handled things with the utmost professionalism. We both went into court, thinking perhaps this case would be resolved in two or more appearances; however, with his astuteness and reputation as a great attorney, he was able to get the case dismissed in one appearance. I recommened this attorney to anyone looking for good representation as he is someone who pays attention to detail.

Sam Really Goes the Extra Mile for Clients
Sam Coe is an incredibly knowledgeable, organized, and capable attorney. He was vested in my interests all the way through the process and made my experience feel like it was not the end-of-the-world by navigating for me in a helpful, kind way. I would not hesitate to hire him as my counsel again.

I have been a firefighter for 17 yrs. After a misunderstanding I was hit with pretty heavy assault weapons charges. My life and career were on the line. I was put in touch with Sam and all I have to say is Life, career and family intact. Could never thank him enough

Brilliant, Diligent, and Powerful lawyer in Every aspect !
Sam understood my situation and what I wanted to do achieve from very first phone call. After the call, he visited my house to talk about detail and possible outcome of my case. Believe we sat there for over an hour.All my concern was answered in detail. Sam was very polite and patient and go slow with me since I do not understand many of legal terms. At court Sam was also friendly talking to couterpart and staffs who was handling my case. This was also one of my reason to choose local attorney who knows people in the area. After the court date, Sam continued to communicate with me and listen to my needs. He did extra work with court to resolve my case faster and smooth without me being in a court again. My case seems start with darkness but it was closed clearly with huge success. Many thanks to him. Highly recommend him to others

attorney review
I appreciate everything Sam did for me. I was being charged with 4 different criminal charges, one of them being under felony investigation, Sam took his time to gather the facts from my case and worked diligently &i was more than happy with the end result, he was able to get everything dropped. Thanks again!

a top-notch attorney
Sam Coe proved to be just the attorney I needed in a particularly stressful situation. He provided great advice, was always available, and offered the right combination of perspective and pragmatism to get me to the end of the process, at which point a set of unsubstantiated charges were dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

Professional and Efficient
Mr. Sam Coe deeply impressed me, here I am with my life in danger only two weeks away from trial and Mr. Coe takes my case on. With much to caught up on, getting to know me and every detail of the case, Sam Coe was confiddient and ready for the fight of my life. Literally jumping into the eye of a storm I was being consumed by and ripped me out, I was on trail charged with four felonies, in a high profile politically driven case, something to be a huge victory for the DA office and my life and everything I’ve worked for, was summed up as collecterial damage, and another days work, Mr. Coe put an end to that. Mr. Sam Coe being very knowledgeable of the law, and challenging the evidence and against me, created a brilliant defense that proved my innocents and lack of criminal intent the case consist of. I had a bench trail and the judge found me not guilty of all charges. With all the chaos and emotions running wild Mr. Sam Coe remained confident, imformative and made himself available to discuss and work on my case. Thank You Mr. Coe
