  • We won our case thanks to this firm.

    “We did our research and employed Coats & Todd to represent us for my husband, Patrick's' disability case. We were initially turned down twice and had to go before a judge to hear our case. Our attorney, Jason, discovered my husband had been "miscoded" by SSD and he immediately pointed this out to the courts. We won our case thanks to this firm. I want to say that not only did we like Jason, but we especially were impressed with the professional that contacted us to not only tell us our case was approved (we had not received an approval letter so it was nice to hear this from our attorney's office) but she told us exactly the amount of the back pay and the monthly check. She stayed on the phone with us to give us all of the details and answered our questions. She continued to follow up with us to ensure we did receive our check and auto deposit. This was AFTER Coats & Todd was already paid. It is important to note this as they still continued to do their job and make sure everything was done even though they were already paid. We are grateful to this firm and to fine professionals like Tynesha that continued to call us to make sure all was well. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone.”

  • I am so thankful and happy I chose this firm and I sincerely appreciate all that they have done for me.

    “To be very honest it has taken me a long time to fine the words sufficient enough to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for what the firm has done for me. I had an active disability claim with the V.A. with regard to lung cancer as a result of exposure to agent orange in Vietnam Nam. For some reason I was decreased from 100% disability to 0%. I went through grueling experience of trying to dispute the error on my own and was getting nowhere. When I thought I had nowhere else to turn I saw the television ad for Coats & Todd and was really impressed with their professional presentation. I sent them a letter with my complete medical records. I one day I heard from their office. I was very fortunate to have Mr. Coats himself, to take on my case. Words express what a sincere, honest and caring person Mr. Christopher Coats is. He is a true gentleman. In one month I was able to get my complete benefits back. I am so thankful and happy I chose this firm and I sincerely appreciate all that they have done for me. God Bless them!”

  • Catherine gave her the best legal representation my girlfriend could have.

    “My girlfriend, Tammy Domagalski, has had failing health the last few years. She is losing her eyesight in one eye and has had knee and back problems. She was very discouraged until she got legal help from lawyer Catherine Coats. Her lawyer took her case and guided Tammy through the Social Security disability claim. Catherine gave her the best legal representation my girlfriend could have. Tammy is pleased and happy with the help she got from this law firm.”

    Mario V

  • We were so thankful for the help with our case.

    “Everyone was always kind and helpful. Especially Tanisha who always put me at ease with my husbands case. If she didn't have the answer to a question she would say let me find out and call you back, and she always did. We were so thankful for the help with our case. Thank you Coats and Todd!”

    “Coats and Todd attorneys go beyond the call of duty. They have the best caseworkers, who are kind, willing to listen when I was in distress. Told me anytime I needed to talk feel free to call.

Thank you!!!”

  • Terrific, kind, supportive legal assistance.

    “I found myself, in an un-expected situation with my general health. I applied for Social Security Disability, but the claim was denied. Therefore, I turned to Coats & Todd for assistance and advice. I am very happy that I did. Diane and Michael were very focused on my case, and they conducted all the communications with the Social Security Office, which took a huge burden off my shoulders. They were open and willing to answer any questions from me. They caused me to regain a sense of hope, and the eventual decision of approval. I cannot fully express how very grateful I am for their support. Thank-you! Five stars from me!”

  • Compassion and Professionalism from the First Call to the Last

    “Contacting Coats and Todd to handle my disability denial was the best decision I could have made. They showed genuine concern, genuine compassion and true professionalism from start to finish. Everything they requested of me, tried to provide in a timely manner. Even so, I was denied twice, and then I had to appear before Administrative Law Judge. Coates and Todd was with me every step of the way; I could not have won my case without their knowledge and expertise. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a disability attorney. Jason was my representative at the hearing.”

  • You know I am so GLAD I hired them because I truly do believe that's why I got approved so fast!

    “A few years back I applied for disability myself in Feb. Got letter of denial I believe in late Aug early Sept? Called 3 attorneys, they were the ones that got back to me that same day to accept my suit. Others were days later & I was so happy because they were so professional & explained everything in layman's terms! They sent me papers and ask me to get them back asap which I did. The very next phone call I got was from my agent at SSI saying that he had good news! That was in Oct of the same year! So? 8-9 months? Approximately! I had been APPROVED! I was so excited! I remember him saying to me " it's just too bad that you hired the attorneys because they will get the max pay for working for you. I think was May still be either 25% OR $4,800: which ever is greater! I remember saying to him "you know I am so GLAD I hired them because I truly do believe that's why I got approved so fast!" I've known friends that didn't hire til 3 or 4 denials & then finally yrs later hire attorneys! Some won then & some didn't! U have of course have records, tests, Dr. documents, statements etc (which they got for me in order to win of course but I remember it was 10 days/2 was before Christmas when I got my first check (including all the back pay I had ask for minus the Attorneys fee!!!! I was so thrilled to take that roughly $14,000 check/ pay some bills/ fix some things up that needed fixed / and then I did a little Christmas shopping! I felt very blessed and to think I waited even longer to apply in the 1st place was so outrageous! People said why not apply I kept saying "I just don't want to ask for help!" Esp seeing soon than were questionable to me (just was still telling myself I'd get better and go back to surgery and work again! Ha! I tried! I usually left after an hr & went home to cry in pain! Have a good pairs management doc that has helped me tremendously with a spinal cord stimulator (after numerous other surgeries etc. I still have some pain but have been able to ween down on my pain meds and "get my life back somewhat!" Yeah I finally decided I'm not anyone but myself, can't speak for anyone else but finally realized No I can't work and I had worked for 26/28 years and wasn't retirement age so I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND COATS & TODD!! If I wasn't too old to learn computer use and not tech challenged maybe I could lay in my bed like I'm doing now w/legs and back up! You will all be glad I Have to get up and stand for a sec. :) thx again COATS & TODD”

  • I been overly impressed with the knowledge, professionalism, promptness responding to calls and inquiries.

    “Previously, I retained Binder & Binder. After a year of nothingness, and through the suggestion of several of your previous clients, I dismissed them. It was the best call I've ever made. From my first consultation to current, I been overly impressed with the knowledge, professionalism, promptness responding to calls and inquiries. Very difficult to impress someone who has worked in upper management and the financial industry for over 25 years. Thank you everyone from my case worker to my attorney for making this one of the most pleasant experiences of my life.”

  • You guys are awesome!

    “I had just about given up after being denied for Social Security Disability. I thought I would give it one more shot when I contacted Coats and Todd. Thank you for taking my case and helping me all the way through this journey. I appreciate everything you did for me and my family. Catherine you are be best. ”

    Lisa McFarlin

  • Awesome experience! Truly recommend these guys!

    “I didn't know what to expect when I called this attorney for my brother in law (Lambert Wilson). He went years of having back problems to the point that doctors recommended him to have surgeries to improve his condition. I decided to help get his disability started and found Coats and Todd as I searching on the internet for a good attorney. They immediately took his case and in less than one year they got my brother in law approved for his disability. During that time these people consistently informed us of what was going on with his case and responded quickly with calls and concerns we had. Awesome experience! Truly recommend these guys!”

  • If they take your case be assured that they will do an excellent job to win for all involved.

    “Just when I thought I was at my last resort, this team (Christopher) helped me. The genuine expression of help came from my first interview. When ever i meet anyone who needs legal consult I immediately refer them to Coats & Todd. They did most of the work when I couldn't, which doesn't happen any more. If they take your case be assured that they will do an excellent job to win for all involved. Good luck to everyone one in need of an attorney.”

  • I feel truly blessed to have them represent me and my husband during such a trying and difficult time.

    “Words will not express the sincere gratitude I have for this firm! They have made every single step in the bankruptcy process so simple for my husband & I. Not to mention they have handled our stresses and worries in the utmost professional manner. Our attorney Cindy Brown and the staff at Coats & Todd are very professional, friendly, supportive and caring. Bankruptcy was such a scary thing to go through and if it weren't for their constant communication and openness with us we would have lost everything we owned. I feel truly blessed to have them represent me and my husband during such a trying and difficult time. THANK YOU Coats & Todd for your constant attention to our questions, concerns and for being so supportive!”

  • Thanks Coats & Todd for continued hard work...

    “I am in the hearing stage after being denied twice. My assistant Shane notified me today 10/28/15 is his final day with the company and that he was training Amber to take over my case. I just wanted to say that Shane proved the concern and comfort provided by Coats & Todd Law Firm is most definitely helping people like myself had nothing to fear. I would recommend this firm to anyone due to all the hard work and attention provided. Good luck to you Shane, thanks for even if I just needed someone to talk to, you were always there and willing even to just lend an open ear when I just needed someone to talk to. This is what you can expect from this firm is not only a lawyer, but a friend like Shane.

    “I would like to thank everyone at Coats & Todd law firm. They did a fantastic good with my case! They contact me to inform me where my case was at and what to expect. At time I understand that they were busy and I didn’t receive a call or email. So, I would call and talk to the person that was taking over my case. They did not hesitate to inform me any information I ask (which was great). I can honestly say that, if you have any problems with your Social Security or questions, I would recommend Coats & Todd Law Firm. FYI: they also have people that speak Spanish.

  • The associates and lawyers were flawless.

    “The associates and lawyers were flawless. I could not have been more surprised. It was very difficult to realize I could not work any longer, my representative and all the associates that handled my case were supportive and compassionate, I was shielded from all difficult issues. I was accompanied to hearing by my personal lawyer Bradley Rasley, and he actually held my hand when I became emotional. I would recommend Coats and Todd to anyone who is facing any of these difficult situations”

I appreciate all of you! May God Bless You and Your families.”
