Amazing Lawyer!!!!
I worked with Devin and one of his fellow colleagues and I cannot say enough great things to say about him as a lawyer and person. His expertise and strategy made my settlement the success that it was. He was efficient, smart, good listener, kind, and an great lawyer. I hope I do not need legal help again but if I did, I would reach out to Devin Coyle without a doubt. I cannot say enough kind and great things about him. Thank you Devin!!!

A true advocate, tirelessly working to get real justice.
I hired mr coyle almost 5 yrs ago with nothing more than a signature and a complex story to tell. That was 2012. Since then he has worked on my case continually, eventually going to trial 4+years later in early 2016. After a grueling 14 day civil trial, the jury found in my favor with a monetary award. Constantly during the trial both my attorneys, Mr. Coyle and Mrs Lisa Peck were complimented on the presentation of our complex case by the judge as well as the cout clerk. Their knowledge of the ins and outs of civil trials, and their professionalism were clear to everyone in the court room. Mr Coyle also readily made himself available to me at any time I wanted, often having to suffer through some emotional outpouring, that this case often brought out of me. In those moments when my angst and extreme agitation got the best of me, he wouldid assure me that we would seek justice. These interactions went beyond what I expected from an attorney, and made me feel/ as if a friend was comforting me and were incredibly reassuring at a time when all my friends and family seemed tired of hearing about my case afyter 4 yrs. That to me was the defining moment; when he sincerely believed in me and our case. On a personal level. I felt like my own brother was fighting my case alongside of me. Believe me, when faced with the daunting spectre of a courtroom, judge, jury, defense attorneys, etc nothing eased my tension and apprehension liker having a sincere advocate that both my attorneys were to me in those darkest of hours. Mr Coyle is an outstanding attorney as well as person in my opinion and I would reccomend him to anybody who has legal questions regarding civil rights or employment law. I dont think I would be where I am today without him; but I KNOW I wouldnt feel as if the truth was brought to light or that I was vindicated in any way without his determination and sense of justice that won our case. I will sincerely be indebted to him for the rest of my life. Gratefully,, Jeremiah

Excellent Attorney with Integrity
Mr. Coyle has been very helpful to me in my case, and especially kind and understanding in my circumstances. It has been a long a tenuous process for me to go through this legal process, however I feel I am in very competent and professional hands with Devin Coyle. My case is still pending and has not met a conclusion as yet, but I have complete confidence in the knowledge, integrity, and abilities of Devin to bring out the very best outcome!

Forthcoming, resourceful and always available if needed...
Because of the complexity of my case it was extremely difficult for me to find an attorney who would represent my case until Devin agreed to represent me. He responded to all my phone calls and e-mails efficiently and effectivley and was articulate about explaining the pros and cons of my case. Although at times his honesty in answering my questions were not exactly what I wanted to hear, his honesty was always appreciated.
