I have hired Mr. Coxen on two separate but connecting cases, a divorce & a contempt case. It has been a long 6 year battle, but Mr Coxen has been very supportive, knowledgeable & honest all the way. His communication skills are commendable, he ALWAYS returns a phone call or an email even when he is out with his family which is why i consider him so dedicated. He makes you feel so at ease & comfortable because you know that he is doing every thing in his power to represent you. He is wonderful lawyer, I will highly recommend him to anyone that needs representation within his scope of practice.

Working with Attorney Coxen was a great experience! He helped me close out my daughter's Legitimation case quick and with no drama. He was very knowledgable about the law and explained in depth what the process would be and what we could do to avoid having to go to court. I was very please with his professionalism and his ability to talk to me like I'm a person and not just a client. I would highly recommend him!!!

I hired Steve Coxen to represent me; for the State of Ga probation office would not release me from supervision of probation. Steve recommended not only to ask for release of supervised probation but to also ask to terminate probation all together. No other lawyer out of 8 that I contacted made that recommendation. At the hearing I was granted release from supervision and the judge asked that I at least serve half, that would be 5 out of 10 years of my probation before he would even considered making a decision on such a request for early termination. Normally this is unheard of for such request to terminate with only half term served. To note this why no other lawyer made that recommendation to me , but Steve did, in saying we have nothing to loose by asking the court of this request- which made sense. So after completion of half the sentence , we went back in front of the judge - needless to say my case was a difficult one, and the ADA was hard in hitting and pleading to the judge not to grant my request. I thought for sure with no doubt in my mind the judge would not grant the request, I could just tell in the way he looked and in the judges body language that he was not going to grant my request after hearing the ADA. Steve with his knowledge and wisdom of the court system spoke and delivering words credible on my behalf, that influenced the judge to change and instead he favored in my request and granted my termination of probation. That of also with only serving 5 out of 10 years which itself is hardly heard of . If you want a lawyer that can deliver words in court to influence a judges decision to your favor , then I highly recommend you hire the talents of Steve Coxen.

I recently tried a case against Steve. It was my first experience dealing with him. We typically practice in different judicial circuits and do not have the occasion to encounter each other. I was extremely impressed by Steve's knowledge of the facts of the case -- both those that supported and that hurt his client's case. He was prepared for everything that I threw his way. Additionally, this case involved some fairly complex legal arguments. Steve was well prepared to address each of those arguments. There are a lot of potentially good lawyers out there that just don't invest the time necessary to get to know their clients. It is clear to me that Steve is a hard worker and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking representation in his practice areas.
