The Coye Law Firm

As a young boy growing up on a farm in upstate New York, Wade Coye learned early on the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the reward in helping others. Working with his grandfather and father, handling daily chores of a dairy farm, planting crops, and delivering the Syracuse Herald Journal every day of the year in heat, rain, or snow (literally), Coye learned that you must work hard, even when conditions are not the best.

Unbeknownst to him, such guiding principles would continue with him throughout his life and help to distinguish his law practice. Coye’s government service has included working for two United States Congressmen in both campaign and staff capacity on Capitol Hill and active duty in the United States Army, Infantry. His military experience and knowledge of government and the private sector continues to aid him in fighting for the rights of others in his law practice. He furthered his education at the State University of New York at Morrisville and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree. He then completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science at The State University of New York at Buffalo.

Fulfilling a lifelong goal and having a passion to help others, Coye attended law school at the State University of New York at Buffalo, receiving a Juris Doctor, cum laude. “The law is a helping profession that you often times need to take the sum of your experiences to aid in helping others solve their problems.”

Coye was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1989 and to the District of Columbia Bar in 2008. When asked about his philosophy on working with clients he states, “It is important to take a 360 degree view of their life and understand the difficulties they face in order to tailor a solution that works well for them.”

He began his legal career with a large commercial law firm where work included handling matters on behalf of the Resolution Trust Corporation, products liability, directors and officers’ liability, and other commercial matters. In 1991, Coye started his own practice, Coye Law Firm, focused on handling personal injury, workers compensation, wrongful death, and insurance claims. He was an early adapter of computer technology and the Internet; appearing on one of the first national lists of lawyers using the Internet in 1995. His continued interest in technology led him to develop a custom database for handling client matters.

The firm, whose main office is located in Orlando, has enjoyed outstanding success obtaining million dollar recoveries in catastrophic injury cases and successfully handled appeals to the First and Fifth District Court of Appeals as well as the Florida Supreme Court. Mr. Coye was recently admitted to practice and represent claimants seeking veterans’ benefits in front of the United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs. He is also admitted to practice in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Tax Court.

Coye Law Firm has now grown to 5 attorneys and handles a variety of matters including personal injury, workers compensation, social security disability, probate, and family law. The firm provides continuing representation to several area condominium and homeowners associations. So what makes his firm different you ask? He will tell you, “Our collaborative team-based approach paired with compassionate client-based service gives clients the best possibility of achieving a favorable result.”

Mr. Coye, his wife, Joan and five children make their home in College Park. In his spare time, as an instrument rated private pilot, he enjoys flying and traveling with his family.
