    More About Attorney Coffinas

Small Firm Feel. Large Firm Results.

Although many firms advertise that they offer personal service and strive to make individual attention an important part of their process, our firm goes further in that ambition. At C&L, our dedication to personalized representation shows in our work and the results we obtain. Because we are a boutique firm by choice, the partners can personally devote more one-on-one time to clients. As we get to know our clients on a more personal level, we are able to delve into the unique facts of each case and develop innovative strategies to achieve each client's goals.

Time and again, we have presented creative arguments that do more than win cases; we also prepare the clients for the road ahead. At C&L, our commitment to your success means that if the law leads to an unfair outcome, we lead the courts to change the law. Whether you are facing a monetary issue, such as spousal support (alimony), or any other type of family law situation, you can count on the representation we provide.

Regardless of what your situation entails or how complicated matters may seem, rest-assured that our team possesses the skills, resources, knowledge, compassion, and experience to handle even the most complex case involving a special needs child.
