I CANNOT RECOMMEND ZACHARY ENOUGH! TRULY!
Zachary was beyond helpful in a situation my husband and I were in recently where we reached out and acquired his services. I cannot express in words how easy Zach was to work with, and how much he helped put our fears at ease. His assistance was bar none, and I am nearly positive that we would not have had the same outcome had he not been our attorney. He communicated with us throughout the entire process, was extremely responsive, and helped us through a situation that could have had a completely different result had we not been fortunate enough to have Zach and his beyond exceptional services.

Zach and Cara are the BEST
When I was in need of an attorney for a financial matter, Zach and Cara were recommended to me. Zach is a level head smart and savvy attorney that gets the Defendants to buckle to their knees. As for Cara, she is just as smart and savvy, but she has a calming presence about her that makes you feel at ease when fighting in a court room. Put them together and you definitely have an A Team!

Exceptional Legal Representation
I cannot express how fortunate I am to have had the privilege of working with Zach and his remarkable law office. Zach successfully represented me in two complex civil cases that had a profound impact on my life. His unwavering commitment, legal expertise and professionalism led to a favorable outcome in both cases, with settlements that exceeded my expectations. Zach took the time to understand the unique aspects of each case and provided not only legal guidance, but also emotional support during an incredibly stressful period. His responsiveness, transparency, and genuine care for my well being made the entire legal process more manageable and less daunting. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, I wholeheartedly recommend Zach without hesitation.

Personal Legal Matter
I was faced with an unexpected personal legal matter and Coon & Cole, LLC was recommended as a Law firm that was well versed in the complexity of my legal situation. After speaking with Zachary on the phone, I was 100% convinced his firm and more importantly Zachary was the lawyer I required in resolving my legal matter. Zachary was able to formulate a quick strategy that brought a quick resolution to my legal issue prior to the noted court date. Zachary's professionalism and legal knowledge of my situation created the off ramp needed which eliminated much personal stress that legal matters bring into ones life.

Client
Mr. Coon is personable and professional. He delivers what he promised and beyond. I was completely lost and helpless when a referral of a referral lead me to Zach. Our initial consultation was enlightening, in depth and factual pertaining to all things real-estate. I learned a lot very quickly. I was excited to hire him. I believe that he empathized with me. He sent a letter to my builder on my behalf and we received a favorable response quickly. When Zach called to tell me the news, he was as happy as I was. His one letter saved me almost $5,000. This is a beginning to a great relationship. Job well done!! Thanks Zach.

Very Quick Settlement!
I had a dispute with a contractor involving work not completed and I reached out to Zachary Coon to get compensation. Zach was very knowledgeable and had a quick remedy for my situation. It didn't take long before I received a full reimbursement from the contractor. Zach's prices were extremely reasonable and he did a fantastic job at explaining everything so that I understood what was happening every step of the way. I highly recommend his services!

Zach and his firm are all professional and considerate, they truly show this from the first conversation through settlement. I felt that they had a refreshingly reasonable approach and were very responsive and strategic throughout.

Business Owner
I reach out to Zach to have him review my business contract which will be used for my residential construction business. He was prompt to respond upon initial contact, and turned everything around in less than 48 hours!! He even spent over an hour with me on the phone answering questions that I had and ensuring that I fully understand the full scope of the contract. I would highly recommend him because of his expertise, quick response time, and thorough answers to my questions!

Mr. Zachary Coon has been representing our 211 year old historical company for several years. He has a vast knowledge of Construction/business law which has proven to be indispensable. He has helped us negotiate contracts, set up corporate documents and settle disputes. What I really appreciate about Mr. Coon is that he is extremely responsive and speaks in a matter that is respectful and understandable to a layman.

A debt of gratitude
Zac Coon spent an amazing amount of time representing me personally and a business I owned. His attention to detail was far beyond what I would have ever imagined. He added a personnel touch to fighting a case that was described as a conundrum . The challenge was to unwind a scam and fully prosecute the person who perpetuated the crime. His keen attention to the problems this presented where unmatched. I truly owe him a debt of gratitude. He brings unmatched dedication to his profession. I believe the firm of Coon & Cole hold as their business model true dedication to their clients.

Fantastic!
We have hired Zach through the years for a variety of services, most recently for the living wills for my wife and me. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and prompt. He also explains everything so us normal (non-lawyer) people can understand. The level of detail he provides for the work he's done for us has been unmatched. We recommend him to anyone who needs the services he offers and can't recommend him highly enough!

Cared more about his money.
Our family took a leap of faith when we hired this young attorney to represent our business. After his work was finished, he notified us of his inflated bill on Tuesday 11/20/2018; he then pestered us to demand payment FOUR TIMES in less than a week. His very strange, very aggressive, behavior caused us to lose trust that he had our best interests at heart. We sent his payment immediately and communicated our feelings to him in an e-mail on 11/26/2018, which he ignored. Why he would treat a potential regular client like this is a mystery to us. We can safely say that money was more important to him than the relationship; and we certainly will never hire Zach Coon again.
