Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 18
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ms. Coffin is one of the smartest trial lawyers I have ever seen command a courtroom. Her ability to tell her client's story faithfully, in a way that everyone can understand, is remarkable. If you have the opportunity to see her in court then you are in luck. Either as a juror, judge, or accused, you will be delighted that she is there. It is attorneys like Ms. Coffin that bring dignity and respect back to the profession in a way that seems to come right out of a movie. Hollywood should keep an eye on this one."
