    Attorney Coolidge represented me on a DWI case from 2013. We received a not guilty verdict in August 2016 after a number of administrative hearings. Attorney Coolidge did an excellent job presenting the facts of the case before the judge. I was extremely pleased with the services remdered by David Coolidge and would recommend him to anyone needing legal representation within his scope of counsel.

    David did what he said he would do and it happened. No fuss no drama no surprises. David told me what to bring to court. I did and my charges were dimissed and he argued for no court cost and I left without owing the court a dime.
    I thought David's fee was reasonable and I will do business agian if I need an attorney .

  • Suspected DUI traffic stop

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    After a traffic stop in southern Wake County that resulted in blowing a .09, I received many offers for legal services. I interviewed several and selected David Coolidge to help guide me through an unfamiliar legal system. I had never been in trouble with the law and had no idea I was over the legal limit. After reviewing the audio and video of the stop, David concluded there was enough evidence to take my case to trial. The legal process for a DUI/DWI arrest is expensive, stressful and difficult to navigate on your own. David and his staff were both patient and honest with me and walked me through each step of the process. It is helpful, however, if the client is proactive in taking care of those items that are your responsibility. In the end, my case went to trial and David was successful in obtaining a favorable outcome for me. I have complete confidence in him and would recommend his services should you find yourself in a similar situation.

  • WONDERFUL

    A few months ago, I was charged with reckless driving. I was arrested and given a bond. This was my first arrest ever, I was worried and stressed out. After first meeting David, I had established that he was extremely knowledgeable about traffic law. I knew I had a great attorney who would fight for me and use every resource available to him in order to argue my case. The case ended up going to trial, and I was very worried. David brought his A-game to trial, and argued very fiercely on my behalf. The case was ultimately dismissed based on a certain factors that pertained to my original arrest. I am so glad that David along with Ed were on my case, I couldn't have had a better team.

    David Coolidge was a great attorney to work with in managing my DWI. I have never had any previous offenses, and had no idea how to navigate the justice system. I reached out to him within a week of being charged, and he was able to get my limited driving privilege and provide step-by-step checklists for all the steps to come. He was also initially very affordable. The case took over a year to come to trial, and then almost another year to go through appeals court. David was confident that I had a sound case based on his extensive research and experience, so I felt comfortable moving forward with the appeal and paying the extra fee. Best money I have spent. I was aware that the initial trial was probably going to go negatively due to the structure of North Carolina law, but it was an excellent decision to move forward to an appeal with an idea of what the State had in mind for a case. Overall, his office staff was prompt in response, his research and presentation were performed exquisitely, and my experience was about as seamless as could be possible.

  • David A. Coolidge: Hardworking and Caring

    David did an excellent job of both helping me win my case and in a timely manner. He was always readily available whenever I needed to contact him to provide him with more information about my case. During the various hearings he and I attended, he gave me useful advice and coaching beforehand that made me more comfortable going into these stressful situations. Additionally, he explained all the nuances of my case to me in ways that were easy to understand, and it was evident that he genuinely cared about me and the outcome of my case. If I ever encountered another legal issue, I would call David first thing.

  • I thought I dug myself into a hole. My case was dismissed.

    Before meeting Mr. Coolidge, I consulted with a couple of defense attorneys for my student conduct case. Most of them were by default motivated in some kind of "plea" or "reduction" in charges (Trial = More work. Plea bargains = quick buck for the attorney). I touched base with Mr. Coolidge's office after being referred to him by someone from NC State who advised me that he helps quite a few students with cases at student conduct. He was willing to listen to my case. I knew I wanted to hire him; to my surprise, he had already drafted a clear, simple-to-understand retainer agreement. As my retained attorney, David communicated with me through texting, which I prefer over email and direct phone. During case prep, he was very knowledgeable and thorough with the information thus helping me with my personal statement and going over how to present information. And guess what? My case was dismissed. Mr. Coolidge is a busy man and can be at times slow at getting back to you. To compensate, his partners and assistants give diligent responses when you call the office. If you are feeling troubled that the frequency to respond is not high enough, just remember Mr. Coolidge is working on multiple cases. Still compared to other busy attorneys, Mr. Coolidge has your best interest at heart. Just calm down and trust him because he knows the system better than your searching any rules/policies by yourself.
