Marcie Patton-Coffman said practicing family law appeals to her because “I’m built for it.”
“In addition to a thorough understanding of the law, I have the patience, sympathy, and ability to listen and communicate effectively that is necessary to be a successful family law attorney,” Ms. Patton-Coffman said.
She had a recent case where she secured temporary custody for a father via an emergency order that eventually turned into her client having full custody of the minor child.
“Why I am proud, though, concerns the part I played in making this particular little girl’s life better,” Ms. Patton-Coffman said. “She is now in a safe loving home with her father and stepmother. Her quality of life has improved so much I can’t help but smile. Not much can beat that at the end of the day.”
