    Mr. Coughlin is an excellent attorney. Thanks to his hard work and sharp legal skills he was able to settle a legal matter in which I was both a plaintiff and a defendant against Wellmont Health Systems. The settlement of the claim and counter-claim gave me everything I had hoped to get. Mr. Coughlin is an attorney of great integrity and his services are very reasonably priced. He is also a voice of reason when my tensions were running high. I could not be more pleased with his legal services.
