Whitney Coyne took all the stress out of my situation. He professionally handled my case in a timely and expeditious manner. I would highly recommend him and all bough I hope I don’t need to use him again, but if the occasion arises I most definitely would.

At-ease soldier
Had a quick, but extremely productive consultation with Attorney Coyne. I agree he was very friendly, and productive all at the same time. For example, I ended the call less than 15 minutes later, because he advised me on his charges, the amount of work it will intel, and what makes sense, and why. I left feeling pretty clear on what to expect and budget. I felt he heard and listened, and said only what was needed. I loved his friendly, yet professional approach in my matter. I am looking forward to seeing if he is the attorney for my family.

Great Attorney
Great lawyer, very friendly unlike most attorney's, he doesn't make you feel like an "idiot" for asking a question. As many as you want. I highly recommend him for any type of ticket. Great personality, that's very important to me and I'm sure the judges also. Very easy to work with. AAA!!
