    "Outstanding trial and appellate attorney in Eugene"

    Mr. Coit has assisted me with a variety of legal matters including criminal charges, a stalking order and child custody and parenting time. When I hired Mr. Coit my ex was making absurd allegations about my conduct. I hadn't seen my children in months. Mr. Coit corrected this and go a stalking order filed by my ex overturned, helped me avoid criminal charges and put me on track with my children. Mr. Coit did outstanding work on my trials and appeals in this case and justice prevailed.
    – Aaron

    "Aggressive and Reasonable!"
    I hired Andrew after I got my 2nd DUII and felony attempt to elude. Thanks to him, the DA completely dropped the attempt to elude and I got the minimum sentence on my DUII.
    – Anonymous Client

    "Andrew Coit is a fantastic trial lawyer in Lane County"
    My child custody and parenting time issues were extremely complicated. Andrew made me feel comfortable with sensitive yet serious family law issues. His comprehensive knowledge was always reassuring to me. He was consistently able to handle my legal matters professionally and firmly and all of his advice was sound and well-reasoned. Andrew was patient and kind during a very difficult and emotional time in my life. He delivered legal advice clearly and in an organized manner that was easy for me to understand.

    Andrew's heartfelt dedication to focus on the best interests of his clients is admirable. Furthermore, Andrew's desire to protect clients from pursing matters that are probably not worth pursuing based on emotional reaction is commendable. Mr. Coit and his staff always display professional integrity, compassionate understanding, and efficiently deliver excellent results for their clients.

    He has represented me over the past 4 years and has never let me down. On one of my cases we had a 5 day trial in which we prevailed. His trial skills are outstanding. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a lawyer in the Lane County area.
    – Kate

    "Worth the money!"
    I had a very complicated divorce and child custody case that spanned two states. Mr. Coit was competent and right to the point. By the time we hired him we had already had two other lawyers in two states and were exhausted. He took the bull by the horns and got the job done. He worked with our other attorneys professional and promptly. It was great to be able to work through email and telephone. He always made time for me. Highly recommended!
    - Crystal

    "Straight talk, no wasting time. Extremely favorable outcome."
    Andrew and I prevailed multiple times against what are considered the top Attorney's/ Law Firms in Eugene. My situation was complex and Andrew put/kept me on the simplest path to achieve my objectives. My Family Law case involved the potential out-of-state (or) International relocation of my children. Andrew assisted me in improving my overall parenting time AND custody situation. No wasted time, no extraneous or frivolous meet-ups. I was given straight advice, based on the wealth of his prior experience. Andrew is an outstanding communicator with an excellent support staff. I followed his guidance and advice to my total satisfaction.
