If you are reading this, you have likely hired my office for your case or you are searching for the best lawyer for your case. I sincerely believe that before hiring ANY lawyer you need to know something about them beyond the basic information like where they went to school, what organizations they belong to, how many years they have been a lawyer, etc.
Hiring a lawyer is, in many cases, a very intimate decision since many legal cases are about the impact of an event on you and your family. It's very personal. If we are to work together in a legal case, it is important to get to know each other!
In my case, you should know that the most important thing in my life is my wife, Joan and my five children. They are the lights of my life. I met my wife, Joan at a Methodist church picnic. Fun fact: We were married in and still attend that church today. I was raised on a dairy farm in Central New York where I worked for my Dad and Grandfather. Being raised on a farm, I am no stranger to hard work. In addition to farm work, my brothers and I had a paper route and delivered the Syracuse Herald Journal 7 days a week!
I have had a variety of life experiences, from serving in the United States Army Infantry (1/41st Infantry Battalion, 2nd Armored Division), to serving two Members of Congress in Washington D.C. I have practiced law in Central Florida for over 27 years, representing thousands of consumers in large and small, simple and complex legal cases in Florida, New York, District of Columbia, Georgia and Michigan.
I started Coye Law Firm in 1991 (then known as the Law Office of Wade Coye) and over the years, I have developed a multi-disciplinary expert legal team that I am very proud of. My team and I handle cases as diverse as personal injury, workers' compensation, disability, probate and family law. We have recovered millions on behalf of our clients.
My goal is to be helpful with a client's legal matters. In fact, my practice areas and my office revolve around our efforts to help our clients. Many times I find that a client may actually have several legal matters that have arisen from one incident and in order to get a better result we find it best to coordinate efforts. For instance, if a person was working while driving a motor vehicle and was in an accident, this injured person could have a workers' compensation case, a personal injury case, a no-fault case, possibly a social security disability case, a long term disability case and possibly a case against their health insurance company. In some cases, a person may even have a family law matter that has been somewhat caused by the loss of income from an accident. We find the same applies when there has been a death.
This type of case requires both a probate action and a wrongful death suit, along with other areas of the law to coordinate. The interrelationship between these practice areas means if your lawyer doesn't understand each area well and coordinate benefits appropriately, you, the client may not receive the best result.
So now that you know a little about me, I want to leave off by saying I value our relationship and work to completely understand the impact of a legal case on you, which I believe is invaluable to obtaining the best result possible for you. You will find that my advice will be direct and straight forward, as if, in some cases, I was making a decision with a family member.
