Excellent Attorney!
Ann did an excellent job helping me navigate a very complex child custody case. I felt she was fully invested and had my families interests prioritized and top of mind. Professional, compassionate, and skilled! I would highly recommend Ann!

Trustworthy and Incredible
Ann was truly an amazing attorney for my case and I do not think I could have found someone else who would've represented me better. I was in a custody battle/parental right termination/adoption case and Ann helped me through all of it and we won in the end. She studied my history thoroughly and was constantly educating me on my rights and options for our situation. I rarely had questions because she was consistently a step ahead of me anticipating my needs and concerns. Ann was always punctual when it came to paperwork and court hearings and clearly demonstrated her knowledge and confidence in all aspects of our case. She made me feel secure in court and she fought hard for the best interest of my daughter which I am forever grateful for. Ann had great experience with our judges and with other attorneys involved with the non-custodial parent and my daughter's legal representation. I highly recommend Ann to represent anyone as their lawyer with divorce, custody, and adoption hearings. Not once was I disappointed because she always went above expectation for me. She changed our lives for the better.

Fantastic Services
After talking for just a few minutes, I knew I was going to hire Annie. She and Nicole (her paralegal) are smart, efficient, and responsive. Luckily I did not ever need to go to court to fight over money or property, but I knew that Annie would go to bat for me if necessary. Nicole handled most questions and paperwork, while Annie handled our settlement meeting with my ex. They are in my opinion, affordable for the quality of service given.

Outstanding attorney.
Attorney Ann Coleman and her professional staff did an outstanding job handling my divorce case from beginning to end. I really appreciated her knowledge, experience, and responsiveness to my questions and her efforts to protect my rights as a parent of minor children. She was very fair and honest with respect to billing me for her time. She worked very hard to obtain a fair outcome for me in my divorce case. Ann and her staff are very personable and demonstrated genuine concern for me as their client. I have already recommended two friends who have unfortunately had to undergo a divorce and child custody proceedings. I would certainly recommend Ann Coleman again because of her professionalism, expertise and finally her very pleasant and agreeable demeanor.

You WANT her on YOUR side!
To begin, if you are looking for an attorney you are probably not in a happy place. Consequently, you need an attorney who LISTENS to you and will keep you appraised of what is going on. I can not begin to say enough about Ms. Coleman. I have worked with several attorneys in various matters in both business and personal and Ms. Coleman ranks right at the top. Her staff is excellent, but it is what she brings to the table for your issues and THAT is what is important. Communication is foremost. Knowledge is exceptional. And you will find in her a very strong advocate for YOU. To say she "fights for you" can sound trite, but in her case it is a fact. You will NOT go wrong with having Annie on your side. If she is on the other side of your case - then just give up and move on.

You can't go wrong
Annie is highly talented and a very good lawyer. I believe she is absolutely the best family law/divorce attorney. Annie was able to guide me through my divorce without ending up in court. She really had my son and I's best interest the whole time. Annie is extremely good at what she does and is always quick to respond. There is no need to look elsewhere for a lawyer. Annie is the real deal.

Review of Ann M. Coleman
I recently wrote a letter to Attorney Annie Coleman thanking her and her staff for all their help and support through a very difficult divorce. I was so grateful that they were always there to answer any questions I had . My emails were answered on the same day. I appreciated the fact that I was able to reach someone during working hours if needed. I told them they were like a family to me. They understand that emotions run high and they were very professional through out the entire process. Annie is as steady as they come offering sound judgment and support. I also appreciate Terry and Nicole. Im so thankful that I had Annie and her team to help walk me through this process.

Hands Down Best Attorney in OC!!!
I hired Annie to represent me in my Child Support case. This was a long drawn out battle caused by opposing party and Annie was incredible through out the entire process. She was informative, patient, incredibly confident and knowledgeable. I was secure and very well taken care of during the pre trial and the actual hearing. She never would over charge me or nickel and dime me for anything. She was extremely fair with her charges. You will NOT be disappointed if you retain Annie. She is one of a kind!

Fantastic
I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received from Mrs. Coleman. She always listened to my wants and needs and had my best interests in mind. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Recommended Highly
Annie will forever be the legal representation I would recommend to anyone in need of this type of help. She always kept my interest in mind, helped me understand what the reality of a situation was and was very responsive...even during her pregnancy and the birth of her child. I was very impressed with her professionalism and ability to listen and guide my decision making process with my interest in mind. Going through a divorce is never an easy undertaking but Annie made it as easy as that situation can be. I am forever great full for her help in my matter and would have been much worse off had she not come into my life at such as hard time. God bless and I pray for all others who have to make such a life changing decision.

Fantastic attorney
Ann Coleman was personable, thorough and extremely knowledgable in every aspect, however the best thing is that she made me feel like I was her only client. Annie never missed returning my calls in a timely manner and was easily accessible at every point during my case. She is very professional and honest. Annie is so experienced, not only with the legal aspects involved, but she also knows most of the opposing counsel you may face and the judges you will be assigned as well. If you are looking for an attorney to bend the truth for you or to use shady practices to win your case, then this attorney is not for you. If you are looking for someone to straighten out the bents truths from opposing counsel and to present your case in an honorable, legitimately legal and riteous manner, then hire Annie Coleman. She wins the right way.

EXCELLENT ANN ROCKS!
Ann became my attorney in the middle of a 3-year long divorce. She's skillful, knowledgeable, always prepared, and a quick learner on complex family-law related financial issues. Because I was hands-on with my case, Ann worked closely with me, always provided me with strategic options and thoroughly-researched legal advice, and never forced me into any decisions. She was fair and honest with her billable hours, and she allowed me to carry out many tasks to keep costs down. Ann always kept me informed and always returned emails/phone calls promptly. Ann has substantial court experience; she's savvy about working within the framework of the family court and child support systems and has an obvious rapport with court staff. In fact, Ann successfully won me in court a very favorable Ostler-Smith bonus obligation and helped me reduced monthly support significantly. During the final settlement negotiation, Ann worked tirelessly and persistently into the 11th hour and never once lost hope. She even delivered the final judgment packet to court in person just so that I could be divorced before the end of the year! To anyone going through a divorce or dealing with ongoing family-law issues, I strongly recommend Ann. Please talk to her before retaining a lawyer (initial consultation is complimentary, by the way)! Thank you for everything, Ann!

An attorney who cares!!
Ann did an incredible job representing me in my divorce. She walked beside me during this very difficult time and was always patient and helpful when I had questions/concerns. She successfully negotiated a settlement and kept me out of court altogether and kept me from paying any alimony. Mrs. Coleman's services were top notch at an excellent value. I'd highly recommend her to anyone searching for a family attorney! Thanks Ann!!

As good as it gets...!!!
If you are in the market for a divorce attorney then do yourself a favor and stop looking, you've just found her. Annie Coleman is as good as they get..!!! I've personally utilized her services for over two years now and would not dream of having someone else represent me. This young lady is sharp and on her "A" game. A professional who will go far in her career. She is very knowledgeable as an educator of law, professional, and when need be a pit bull. The hard thing about knowing if you have good legal representation is that, you don't really know until you've had an opportunity to see them perform in court. Not only was I impressed when she went to battle on my behalf in court but I actually overheard other attorney's in the court room, after hearing her argue, say, "Wow, she's good". I knew I had the right attorney before I heard that... But, it didn't hurt my confidence to hear that in a stressful situation... Bottom line, I'm glad she was not the opposing counsel in my case... Again, if you need and attorney, meet with her, you'll save yourself a lot of time. I must have consulted with approximately 10 different attorneys prior to meeting with Annie. She's very pleasant and will put your nerves at ease. You'll instantly know what I'm talking about and will be glad you took the opportunity to meet with her...

consultation
I consulted with this attorney for a finance matter in my post divorce thinking she is knowledgeable in that particular field. I only paid which was not at all useful even one bit. she never gave me any tips or any proper legal explanations other than just trying to instigate me to file a case stating how bad my ex was etc. totally unprofessional. she is not knowledgeable wrt finance, tax at all.
