CokerLegal

The CokerLegal offices opened in August 1998.

We chose to become a part of the Denton Community because we find Denton to be a place that continues to embrace the traditional values of community. We are proud to be a part of a caring and connected society.

Our office believes in the importance of our clients. We strive to return your phone calls, answer your e-mails, remember your appointments, and treat you like the important person that you are.

Likewise, our office will put forth the same determination and willpower that motivated Duane L. Coker and his wife, Louellen, on their 24-day hike to the base of the highest mountain in the world. With this determination at work for you, you will receive the attention, service, and results you deserve.

Our Denton office assists clients in many ways:

Duane L. Coker and shareholders, Kelly K. E. Robb and Jacqueline D. Cannon, along with associates Kimberly Killebrew, Bonnie Bundens, Marci Martinez and Peggy Rensberger, are Denton County and Collin County Texas lawyers who represent clients in family law cases. More than just Texas divorce lawyers, our office helps clients with child custody litigation, adoption, child support, modifications, and juvenile cases.

We also handle probate litigation, including guardianships, probating Wills, and Will contests.

With the presence of the Denton State School and several senior communities, Denton County has one of the highest per capita rates for guardianship cases in Texas. Our Statutory Probate Court strictly enforces the requirements of the Texas Probate Code that guardianships be tailored in the least restrictive fashion possible. Hiring a Denton, Texas lawyer, familiar with the specific requirements of the Denton County Statutory Probate Court, is a good first step in obtaining the guardianship you need to help your loved ones in his or her time of need.

One of our areas of practice which we are most excited about is assisting clients with Collaborative Law cases. In these cases, clients agree to settle their case with the opposing party in a dignified and efficient manner without contested Court proceedings.

Duane L. Coker, Kelly K. E. Robb, and Jacqueline D. Cannon are trained in Collaborative Law. Duane is a charter member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas and is active in both local and international Collaborative Law groups.

We are happy to assist you in any of our primary law practice areas.

Best Lawyer!!
I hired Jackie Cannon for my divorce and I’m so so thankful to God for sending her my way. I met with so many lawyers regarding my divorce case and child custody but nobody ever explained like Jackie did. She was patient, explained everything in detail, took her time with me always and never rushed me. Her paralegal Holly Keen, I would say the best too because every time I had a question I would email holly and Jackie and I would get a response from them both right away. I would definitely recommend Jackie, Holly and Lauren.

Would highly recommend.
I would highly recommend Jacqueline Canon and all of her staff. She and her staff worked very hard on my case for the past 3 years and never let me feel alone or out of the loop. It was a very long and tiring process, but was made easy by the professionalism, care and concern for myself and my family. There is nothing that I would not trust this office with, and while I hope that I don't have to hire them again, I would in a heartbeat.

Client
Hiring Jackie Cannon was the greatest decision I ever made. She was unbelievably professional and responsive and fought tooth and nail for my best interest. I have recommended her to several friends already and will continue to do so.

Professional and Supportive
I was referred to Jackie Cannon by another attorney and I am so thankful for the referral. Jackie, and her paralegal Holly Keen, were kind and professional in handling my divorce. I couldn't have asked for a better team. They were kind, straight forward and supportive. Every divorce is expensive. Jackie and Holly made sure I was aware of all the fees that would be charged at our first meeting. I will pass Jackie's name along to anyone that needs a great family attorney and with top notch paralegal.

Helpful in Painful Times
I had unique difficulties during my divorce. Also, I was overwhelmed with the terminology, and Jackie patiently explained to me the ins and outs and the whys.

Worth every penny
I hired Jackie for my divorce, I used Jackie again through a tough custody case Jackie took the time to get to know me as a father and a person. She is straight forward, tough and honest. Jackie protected my rights as a father. I am forever grateful to her for how hard she fought for me. I have my kids today full time because of her.

Excellent Attorney!!!
I hired Jackie as my attorney for a divorce and child custody case this year. She walked me through every step of the law and made sure I got what I deserved. She is aggressive but professional and does not back down in court. She is confident in what she is doing and she does not waste your time. She exceeded my expectations and won my case at a 110% in my favor. If you want an attorney that knows her family law, look no further Jackie Cannon is it!

Excellent Attorney
I recently had the need for legal representation and Jackie at Coker Legal was a God send. She was professional and extremely knowledgeable regarding family law, but was also compassionate and caring as a mother and wanted to help me get the best for my child. We were successful and she made the process as painless as possible. I highly recommend Jackie Cannon and will return to her for my future legal needs.

Outstanding
I initially consulted with Jackie to get some more imformation about divorce. I've never done anything like this before, so I was in the dark. She was extremely helpful and encouraging. I later hired her, and it was a smooth and seamless process. I am so thankful for her representation.

Thank you Jackie Cannon!
CokerLegal helped me with my divorce almost 3 years and just recently helped me with a child support modification. I cannot thank Jackie Cannon enough for all of her help and guidance through both processes. Thank you Jackie and CokerLegal for everything!

Wouldnt go anywhere else but Here!
I would recommend this firm to anyone looking for Family law representation. Going through a divorce is hard both financially and emotionally but they were there every step of the way in guiding me during the process. My attorney from Coker Legal is Jackie Cannon and was very professional and always had my best interest in mind. Lines of communication were always open and response time with answers was great. At the end of my divorce case I felt that my goals were reached and interests were protected. Would definitely use Coker (Jackie) again if i ever needed representation again.

Excellent Lawyer
When same sex marriage became legal in Texas I was very excited because this meant I could legally get a divorce. I had no idea where to start or who to talk too. After speaking with several different firms and being turned away either due to beliefs, the complication of my case or money I finally found Jackie's firm. Jackie & The Coker Firm where not discouraged due to the difficulty of my case or the other party, they where not discouraged by my financial abilities instead they worked with me. Jackie will stand by your side for what is right with no judgment and truly cares about her clients. I will definitely use Jackie again & her firm in any legal situation I may require in the future!

Amazing!
Jackie is the best lawyer I have ever had. Jackie is well prepared and on top of things. Thanks to her I now have custody of my little girl. I can't thank her enough for being the best dam lawyer around. I would recommend her for anyone!
Posted by Stuart | December 23, 2014
The best support
Having never been through a divorce before, I was not sure what to expect. Jackie was supportive, always available and addressed all of my concerns. Even when the process got bumpy, she was there to get me through it. I would not hesitate to recommend her services, and should I need them again myself... It would be a pleasure speaking with her again.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Jackie during the difficult time of my divorce. She truly is an amazing person and attorney. She took me through the process and worked at a pace that I was completely comfortable with never pushing me "go after" my ex-wife but not allow me to be "run over" either. Although I would never recommend a divorce, if you are in need of an excellent attorney that will represent you fairly and completely, I can highly recommend Jackie Cannon and the firm of Coker & Associates.
