Easy, friendly, and professional
I was embarrassed to admit that for the first time in many many years I had obtained a speeding ticket...Curran was friendly and professional and helped me get it reduced to a non-moving violation. He didn’t make me feel silly, and the whole process was very convenient and efficient, being able to mostly work through email communication. I recommend Curran and his partner to anyone in need of a lawyer!

Great Attorney
Mr. Coulter helped me through what had become a very difficult situation. He was very professional and informative. Presented me with alternatives, and kept me in the loop. I had hired a different attorney during my divorce and felt poorly represented and indiferent. Mr. Coulter was the complete opposite. I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. During emotional litigation, one doesn't always get what one hopes for, but I feel confident in saying that because of Mr. Coulter I was able to get some justice. Thank you for everything.

Modification / Custody
Curran is a tremendous lawyer always thinking of ways to get things done. My case just settled and was better than I could have imagined it would turn out, and believe me my case was like a ball of yarn. My case drug on for nearly 10 years with insane situations. I met Curran a year ago and handed him the ropes. Now I have custody of my son and finally a good path to look forward to. If you want a lawyer that thinks on his feet then Curran will suit you. Thanks Curran for not letting up even when things looked crazy!!

Highly recommended Lawyer
Curran Coulter was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a reasonable resolution seemed impossible. Mr. Coulter represented me in a rare child custody/jurisdiction case while I was living out-of-state and was always calm and compassionate. He was responsive, kept me informed, caring and respectful about what I was going through. His support helped me walk through a difficult and confusing process. Curran was always readily available and even when I had “emergencies” after hours, he always responded within minutes-instructing me as to the best course of action. In many cases, the timeliness of his replies turned out to be essential to the outcome of my case. Curran always was on my side financially and constantly advised me about the costs and alternatives available. I am eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Curran Coulter and the Law Firm without reservation.

Highly Reccomend!
Curran took over my husband's custody case and did an amazing job with absolutely everything. He was an amazing communicator, very understandable, highly knowledgeable about everything & very honest. I, hands down will never reccomend a different family law lawyer! I have already passed his name along quite a few times & will continue to do so. We got everything we asked for & my husband & myself are so thankful for Curran's dedication & help in our case.

Easy, Painless and Professional
I received a traffic ticket in Southern Missouri several months ago and called to ask Curran for his help. The whole process was extremely easy and painless. Considering I hadn't received a speeding ticket in several years, I was concerned that the whole ordeal would require me to drive back to the municipality to go to traffic court. I gave Curran all the information and within a few weeks everything was resolved. Painless, easy and professional. I'd highly recommend Curran and the team at Coulter Law to anyone in need of legal services. -Chris, St. Louis
