Service with a Personal Touch
Mr. Youngberg worked my divorce as quickly and promptly as possible. He returned all messages promptly and never left me wondering where I stood in the case.

As a single custodial father, my kids and I thank you!
My kids and I thank you. Mike was awesome. He set realistic expectations on the day I hired him. On the final day the outcome was even better. As a single dad, I ended up getting primary custody of both kids, and their mother is paying me child support through the state system. I interviewed three lawyers before hiring Mike. They just didn't feel right and were saying things that hadn't aligned with my research. Mike felt right, was realistic, kept me updated, was as prudent as he could be with my money, etc. The results spoke for themselves. Thank you Mike.....

Very Helpful
Very grateful for all the help and guidance provided on my recent divorce. It is never an easy time, however Mr. Youngberg and Carla were amazing. I was really important to have them on my team since my x-husband was not located in Texas and we needed to take into consideration the impact of him being over 1,000 miles away.

Fine example of a GREAT attorney!
Mike and his team at Coker Legal changed my life for the better. Because of his knowledge and experience, he was able to get me full custody of my 3 girls and stop my child support. It was a long battle, but we came out victorious. I would recommend Mike to anyone who was in that not so favorable position that i found myself in. He was able to sort out all the mess and make things right! Always gave me his full attention and was a stickler with the details. My family and I THANK YOU form the bottom of our hearts!! Mike and the great people at Coker Legal will take care of you. I PROMISE!!

Helpful, Knowledgeable and Patient
Mike and Toya were so helpful and proffessional through the process of my divorce. It wasn't contested but i still a big process and can be difficult to navigate. They made it so much easier and i felt very confident in my legal team.

Divorce made simple
I was impressed with Mike and Toya's follow-up. They sent me a package of questions that were easy to follow. My no-contest divorce documents were prepared professionally with directions for every step, as a result, I was able to file the documents promptly and with a fraction of the cost. Thank you Mike and Toya.

No-contest divorce
Toya and Mike helped me with my simple "no-contest divorce" and I have to say they were superb. My case went over the holidays and had delays on MY behalf. Yet every time I contacted them they were very patient with me and picked up right where we left off. They will work with you, your situation, your schedule, and everything you need to get what needs to be done done. They will go above and beyond in helping you and a real pleasure to work with.

"Mike used to work for the Texas Attorney General's Office, where he gained significant experience in representing clients throughout both the child support and child custody fields. I've worked with Mike on many cases addressing these in the past, and he has shown an ability to work with the needs of a client's particular case and to guide them through that difficult time in their life. I would recommend Mike if you are seeking representation for your child support or child custody case."
