Mr. Coleman has never let me down. He's excellent at what he does and always prepares his clients to the best of his ability. He's upfront and honest about all information with his client. If you need someone to fight for you in the courtroom - Bobby Coleman is the bulldog you want.

Excellent and well trusted attorney!
Mr. Coleman helped me win custody of my son. As a man, I know how hard it is for a man to get sole custody. I will be in his debt forever and highly recommend his services.

Bobby was hired after my husband passed away. There were some things in the estate that were not clear and he handled everything with ease. He is the best there is in this area and I would recommend him to anyone needing legal advice and representation.
