Tom Coan has the rare ability to actually stay engaged and listen to what his client is saying. With great patience, and without being condescending, he is able to gather all the evidence, good and bad, and mold it into excellent defense strategy. His attention to the smallest of details, coupled with his demeanor in the courtroom, has given my friend the confidence and strength needed to make it through his trial. Thank you Tom Coan, for not only being a great attorney, but for also being a good man.

I called Mr. Coan after getting arrested for pot possession. He made me
feel comfortable immediately and assured me he would do his best.
Mr. Coan was always there to answer questions and concerns, keeping in
contact through email and phone. This case could have included jail time,
a fine, and suspension of my license.
Thanks to Mr. Coan's expertise, the case was dismissed!
I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, knowledgeable

I think most would say that the need for a Criminal Defense Attorney is unplanned. Being an unplanned event it is often and can be jarring should it be a first experience. The justice system if it can be called that isn't concerned about justice and is instead concerned about winning and losing. For these reasons it is important to be represented by an attorney that understands what you're experiencing and guide you through what can be described as a minefield. Your goal is to have your first experience be your last and I can whole heartedly recommend Thomas Coan as an advocate with your best interests as his sole interest. Thomas is trust worthy and how many people can you say that about?
