I was impressed when I first met Coldwell. He is tall, charming, articulate, confident, with a great website, and office. I heard his colleague has a good reputation. Well, I handed him $15K to work on an issue during my divorce and he did nothing to solve it. After 4 months I was in a worse place than where I started and the retainer was gone. He got fired by another mom too; maybe he is good with dads only. He will waste your money meeting you and rehashing the same rhetoric over and over again while no court action is taken. He placed me in a lame duck position during mediation and spent most of the time out and about chewing tobacco. He is not board certified and he is not worth what he charges. His assistant Donna is the only real value- she knows her stuff.
Pros: He presents himself well, very articulate
Cons: Too expensive, not as knowledgable, bad negotiator
