Matthew Coté

Matthew Coté has developed a strong civil practice by being passionate about protecting his clients’ rights against governments, corporations, and other individuals, while consciously counseling his client’s on their legal and financial best interest.

Coté Legal Services represents both plaintiffs and defendants in litigation.  In addition, we provide a wide range of non-litigation legal services, such a contract drafting and negotiation.   We represent variety of business entities in many different industries, along with individuals from many different walks of life.  It is only by having a positive impact for client’s that the practice of law becomes truly rewarding.

Instead of large scale advertising campaigns, Coté Legal Services has focused its efforts on client satisfaction and word of mouth referrals.  We make a difference by providing thorough and accurate advice along with exceptional legal representation to clients.

Incurring attorney fees is often not in the client’s best interest.  Sometimes, the best thing an attorney can do for a client is avoid court and the cost of litigation.  At Coté Legal Services we believe it is our duty to inform clients when a legal remedy may not justify the costs.

However, when litigation is necessary, such as when you have been sued or dispute becomes irreconcilable, we provide zealous and thorough advocacy to obtain the best outcome possible.
