A true blessing
I have so much to say but so little space to say it. Sam was a referral. He flew from Lauderdale, came to my hospital room in Ocala and listened patiently to my story. At that point I had been in a coma due to a "mild" brain bleed, which resulted in withholding my blood thinner medication, which resulted in the amputation of one leg. On top of all this was a stack of bills and documents I was to deal with My head was spinning. When Sam left my room he took all took all the bills, documents and more important all my worries. I never had to look back on the legal matter. He and his right hands, Alex and Sandy handled and continue to handle everything for me to my complete satisfaction. As a result I have been able to concentrate on learning to walk again with the prosthetic and a walker, at this point. I am now independent again. The case has settled and Sam, Alex and Sandy continue to clear up the loose ends. I would highly recommend Samuel Aaron Coffey and Company to anyone in need of an honest, kind, gently and hardworking man that happens to be one heck of an Attorney, with a staff that goes beyond the meaning of helpful. God Bless you Sam, Alex and Sandy.

Attorney Sam Coffey
I can’t say enough good things about Attorney Sam Coffey. He’s experienced, smart, hardworking, honest, tenacious and a nice guy. As a former personal injury paralegal, I chose Sam to represent me, after being injured in an auto accident, because I knew he would pull through and get the best result. He’s an exceptional attorney with a great team. 5 stars.

Sam Coffey is an excellent lawyer
Sam Coffey is absolutely the best at what he does. If tragedy were to strike anyone in our family, Sam would be hands down the man I would want representing our interests. Very smart, experienced, and he gets the job done with favorable results.

My experience with both Sam and Alex was excellent, all my questions answered quickly, did not have to resend anything to them which I have experienced in the past. Made the whole experience more less traumatic. Sam is very professional at all times informing of each process and what to expect. I would recomend Sam Coffey in the future he has changed my oppinion of attorneys. thanks Sam and Alex.

Simply didn’t care
My experience was poor. In the beginning, Mr Coffey made it seem we had the best case & he would put his all into it. Alex (his paralegal) did little & was very unconcerned & unreachable. After more than a year, I had finally found out Coffey had dropped my case without telling me. I found out by continuing to call the office months after. I was able to reach a sizeable amount by obtaining a new lawyer who kept me informed with each step. Coffey is the attorney I would always advise against using.
