Cofer & Connelly, PLLC – Fixing Problems So You Can Return to What Matters Most

Any kind of legal dispute can be daunting. If you're trying to navigate a family law dispute, facing criminal charges, or are working through a personal injury case, identifying the best path forward can seem impossible—and that's to say nothing of how emotionally challenging legal matters can be.

At Cofer & Connelly, PLLC, our lawyers have over 55 years of combined experience. We've handled more than 18,000 cases across a wide range of practice areas including over 315 jury trials. Our legal acumen enables us to pursue an optimal outcome on your behalf.

We're committed to achieving excellence for each and every one of our clients. Our attorneys understand legal trends and best practices across family law, criminal defense, and personal injury, ensuring you receive high-quality legal counsel throughout your legal dispute. For example, in the last year, 80% of our clients facing felony charges resolved their case without receiving a felony on their record. We strive for that level of success in all of our practice areas, and treat every case with the respect and attention to detail it deserves.

At the end of the day, our mission is simple: We want to shoulder the burden of your case, so you can focus on your health and well-being while we handle the legalities.

A Different Approach

Experience • Creativity • Professionalism

We know that life doesn't stop when we're done working with you. The outcome of your family law or criminal case could change your life forever, and too few law firms help their clients know what to expect when their case is finished.

Not us.

We approach every case with a client-focused, top-down perspective. We analyze all the details of your legal situation to develop a comprehensive case strategy custom-tailored to your unique needs. As part of that process, we identify a way to handle your case that not only helps you successfully resolve your legal dispute, but also enables you to build the foundations for a happier, healthier life down the road.

You deserve a law firm that genuinely cares about your future and handles your case with care and compassion. We wouldn't settle for anything less.
