Smart, multidisciplinary attorney
Toby Coleman has represented and advised me on more than one occasion, primarily in business law. I have found his advice both sound and practical. Additionally, his business and finance experience have also added value to his consultations. Toby is a trustworthy and dependable advisor.

Mr. Coleman handled a legal issue for my business. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained my options and suggested a course of action. He kept me informed every step of the way thru the resolution of the matter. Mr. Coleman will be my first call should I have a need for an attorney in the future. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services.

Toby Coleman has represented our family on several occasions in totally different scenarios. In each case, Toby did an excellent job. He paid attention to every detail and possessed a knowledge of the law that applied to each situation. Toby was very professional, completely trustworthy, and easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend Toby.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Compassionate Professional
I used Mr. Coleman’s services based on a trusted family friend’s recommendation and was not the least bit disappointed in the quality of service. Not only was he very accommodating about meeting times and places but was upfront about my options as to how to address my very serious legal issue. He offered me several points of view and options to address my legal problem and after thoroughly discussing each one with him and my immediate family we agreed on his recommended plan of action. He got me the most favorable result I could have hoped for under my circumstances. I was so pleased with my first experience that I used him again when in need of legal help. Not only was his consultation comforting in a time both personally and legally challenging, but he once again was able to advise me about several options that I could pursue to end my very serious legal issues that could easily have resulted in my “temporary loss of freedom”. Just as with my first experience I took his advice on our legal plan and he was able to secure me another very favorable result. I would highly recommend his services and at the very least a consultation with him to see if he can meet your legal needs. Mr. Coleman has saved me and my family a lot of hardship over several mistakes in judgement I personally made that could have cost us more than just a monetary loss.
