Excellent Knowledgeable Attorney
I had the opportunity to discuss a matter with Mr. Coyle and was impressed with the depth of his knowledge in his practice area. I am an attorney in VA and had an issue arise which required that we seek local Counsel in OR. Mr. Coyle was spot on with his assessment and provided several possible avenues for a resolution. His focus was on the client's best solution, which is the attitude I needed.

Excellent Attorney
At the age of 63, I was forced to file bankruptcy due to the closure of the company I owned. I also owed quite a bit in taxes. Having never gone through this, I was terrified of losing my home, car, and everything. Chris came highly recommended to me by another attorney, so I made an appointment to meet with him. Chris was very empathetic to my situation and thoroughly explained everything to me. He was always available whenever I had questions, or just needed reassurance. Although still a very difficult thing to have to go through, Chris made it much easier for me by putting everything into perspective. I am so grateful for all that Chris has done to help me with this. I would highly recommend him.
