Coffield PLC provides advice and legal representation to employees and groups of employees in Virginia and North Carolina.

This practice is defined by its clients, built from the ground up, providing legal advice and services that are tailored to you and your situation.

Before you sign a contract with an employer, talk to me. Before you decide whether to pursue legal action, talk to me. I frequently find issues and strategies that would otherwise go undiscovered.

    Client Testimonials

    • Tim Coffield represented me for an employment issue, and I was very impressed with his legal expertise and his ability to break down the issues into layman’s terms–and point out the pros and cons–to guide my decisions. I was also impressed that Tim reached out to the other side’s attorney to establish a rapport and kept the entire matter very cordial and professional. I wanted a quick resolution, and Tim kept the matter moving along quickly in order to do so, and kept me informed. He had a vested interest in getting a positive outcome for me, which he achieved. I would recommend him without hesitation.

      Darrell S.
    • Mr. Coffield is a superb attorney. He was able to ascertain quickly the key issues involved in a case and then hone in on strategies. He was able to run through different scenarios–e.g., if you do this, they might argue this, then you could say this–and help determine the best course of action. I sent him a raft of material and he was able to separate out the key pieces from each that were most relevant to the case. Last, I felt he took a genuine interest in me and the well-being of my family, and the potential repercussions for their future of various legal paths. I give him my highest recommendation.

He offered several scenarios of what my options were and helped work through them for the most suitable and affordable. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable and caring! Great attorney!

      Alan M.
    • I highly recommend Tim Coffield. He was extremely thorough, very tenacious, and those were skills very necessary in dealing with my former employer, a Virginia state agency! It was impressive to see how much he put into my case, which got me a cash settlement, by the way! He put in long hours- nights and weekends- and really went the extra mile!
