Debra by her pedigree is extremely well educated not only in the law but the practice of defense. From the beginning she was a very good listener, direct about possible outcomes, challenges we may face, and opportunities to prove my innocence. As a professional she does not tell you what you want to hear just for you to hire her. She clearly shows her experience and concern for her clients from the moment you meet her.
You will not be just another client or a fee for the firm and their expensive office space. I was faced with some very serious charges, that if proven, would have destroyed my business practice, my reputation in the community, and the lives of my family. It was a misunderstanding based on some medical issues I had been dealing with for some time but simply could not come to grips with. As my attorney she helped me more than I can express or repay.
Ms. Corcoran not only listened to the facts of the case but dived deep into me as a person. She recommended some excellent health professionals, was compassionate, and worked closely with the prosecution to explain my case and circumstance. Ultimately the charges were dismissed due to closely working with her, her understanding and competence in presenting the evidence, and professional respect and relationships with the court and its officers.
I would recommend her to ANYONE that needs legal help. You will not find a more committed, talented, and honest attorney anywhere. She cannot and will not guarantee an outcome but will do everything in her education, experience, and work ethic to get you a positive outcome. I am truly grateful for her dedication to the legal profession and truly caring about her clients issues as if they were her own.

Debra Corcoran is a very intelligent lawyer. She knows the law better than the prosecution and looks for every possible way to handle your case. She took my case to trial and I was acquitted on two felony charges that were truly false. She is personable and I am very grateful to have had her as my attorney.

My husband was facing serious criminal charges (involving a false rape charge). Ms. Corcoran took over from our first lawyer (who was awful) and was very aggressive and really fought for my husband. She always kept us involved and kept in contact no matter what her demands were (she keeps in contact by texting, emails, phone calls and face-to-face contact). When we hear of other men facing similar trouble, we have actually called them and told them to call her. She also gives references. We can't thank her enough.
