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.

Stephen was great to work with during my divorce. He was always quick to answer any questions that I had. I was on a kind of time crunch trying to get it done before the end of the year (for tax purposes), and he and his team helped to make sure that happened. I will be glad to recommend him to anyone who needs a family law attorney. His work is stellar!

I personally, have dealt with A LOT of lawyers.Some are friends,some are business associates. I was blindsided by some very serious charges and had no idea how to handle them. Mr.Coxen took down all the facts of the case,answered questions and most importantly,returned text's and messages . When the court day came,I actually felt sorry for my opposition when they took the stand against Mr. Coxen. The 6 charges against me were THROWN OUT by the judge.Do you want a good lawyer?Use other lawyers on this site. If you want a great lawyer,use Mr.Coxen.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
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.
