Courageous champion of justice
I’ve known Andrew Coffman for many years. His practical, clear-eyed, unfailingly reassuring guidance is a rock of steadiness in a chaotic world. He has a sharp mind and a gentle heart. He knows the law. He can explain the law clearly. He is fearless. He stands up to big, intimidating organizations without backing down and still maintains his civility and humility. If you’re looking for a tireless champion to see that justice is done, he’s the right attorney for you.

Andrew was great to work with and answered every question I fired at him. He did everything he promised and would use him again if needed.

Responsive and thorough!
Andy is well-respected by many other lawyers in his field. From my first consultation with him, it was apparent he was knowledgeable of all the particular issues present in my case. And, he and his staff were prompt and responsive, helpful, and protective of my interests. He is a careful lawyer, too, and by that I mean thoughtful and strategic in his approach on a case. When you seek help from a lawyer, you want someone to exercise their legal skill, not just parrot what you think. Andy does that well. I much appreciated his help in working the best resolution for me and my family.

Not what I expected
PCW has a reputation for being aggressive and attentive to clients wants and needs. I did not receive that. I felt as though I did most of the leg work and was completely ignored at times. Andy misinformed me of when to file an appeal. This caused me to lose my option for an appeal. I did not get the representation for the reputation of the firm.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
After submitting information to this attorney for review, I received an extremely rude response that was so unprofessional to be an attorney. I would not recommend this man to anyone. I would not have selected this attorney to represent me even if he felt I had a case. I would not give this man no stars but had to in order to post my review.

Response from Andrew Coffman October 8, 2019
I should have known this review was coming based on a surprisingly aggressive email exchange. Unfortunately, not every unpleasant work situation presents a legal issue for an attorney to resolve. This individual simply had no claim against the employer, even though I know they wish it were otherwise. I strive to provide clear information to potential callers and regret that I cannot always tell people what they want to hear.
