Now, as is often the case, OUR CLIENTS SAY IT BEST.

Impeccable Knowledge, Thoroughness, and Confidence

"I recently had the pleasure of utilizing Mr. Andy Goldstein's expertise. I simply cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Goldstein's impeccable knowledge, thoroughness, and confidence. From the start of the consultation, I knew my trust could be placed in him to represent me, and with exceptional time and care taken to ensure my questions and concerns were addressed entirely. At the end of the day, I couldn't be happier with my decision to have Mr. Goldstein in my court."

Competent, Responsive, and Comforting

"Mr. Cole and his team have been excellent to work with during my case. They are competent, responsive, and comforting during a stressful time."

Couldn't Be More Pleased!!

"Scarlett and Andy were amazing!!! They both worked diligently and put all their dedication into my case. After 6 years of hard fought, continuous situation, Andy and Scarlett helped me prevail and I couldn't be more pleased!!"

Nothing but Great Things to Say

"I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with the Cole Law Group. The lawyers were both experienced and professional - I felt well accompanied in a timely manner and I also felt heard. Highly recommend."

Helped Guide Us Every Step of the Way

"We had a great experience with Cole Law Group! Both Scarlett and Andy were a pleasure to work with. They were friendly, easy to talk to, quick to follow up, and helped guide us every step of the way. So glad we decided to have them help us because it would've been much MUCH harder without them. Thank you so much."

Succeeded In Winning a Difficult Appeal

"Andy Goldstein and Cole Law Group are wonderful. We had a long, hard legal battle, and Andy was with us every step. Andy has excellent knowledge of the law. His knowledge of the law is how he succeeded in winning a difficult appeal. Andy is always professional, has integrity, is honest and sincere as well as incredibly intelligent. I highly recommend Cole Law Group and especially Andy Goldstein. My family and I are forever grateful!"

Prompt, Professional, Straightforward

"From the first phone call the entire team has been prompt, professional, straightforward, and easy to work with. I can't thank them enough for their knowledge and timeliness."

So Understanding on the Bad Days

"I found Cole Law from a friend local to Nashville. Paul and Alyssa were very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to my divorce.They answered all my questions and were so understanding on the bad days. They were able to settle it professionally and I will definitely come to them for any legal advice!"

Navigated Me Through My Case, as Well as the Emotional Roller Coaster

"After my first attorney placed me in a bad situation, I hired Andy Goldstein to represent me in my divorce case. Mr. Goldstein navigated me through my case as well as the emotional roller coaster. What I valued the most was his character and legal knowledge."

Exceptionally Knowledgeable and Very Candid

"I had the pleasure to have an excellent case consultation with Mr. Cole and Mr. Goldstein recently regarding a case. They spent just over an hour with me and were exceptionally knowledgeable and very candid as to recommendations, possible outcomes and all avenues that could be legally pursued. Although the merits of my case are complex they were very honest about how the process would likely unfold. They really care about the cases they handle and are honest in their approach. Definitely not in to taking a case to keep billing for money. They want to do what is right!"

Saved Our Daughter's Life

"Todd Cole saved our daughter's life!"

Very Honest and Upfront

"I hired Andy Goldstein for a family issue. From the first phone call I could tell he knew his stuff. He was very honest and upfront about each step and what I should expect. He was right each time. He didn't beat around the bush nor did he ever give me the impression he was wasting my time and money. He always kept me up to speed on everything involving my case. Phone calls before and after each court appearance as well as constant updates. I highly recommend Andy Goldstein. He helped me reunite with my son after 7 years being denied my rights as a father. He actually cares about you as a client."

Exhibited Incredible Legal Prowess

"Todd Cole and his team at Cole Law Group are exceptional. Their commitment and attention to their clients is impressive and they have exhibited incredible legal prowess. In addition to their tremendous competence and effectiveness, everyone on their team is compassionate and easy to work with. I would recommend Cole Law Group without hesitation."

Did an Incredible Job

"Scarlett Sloane did an incredible job resolving a case I had with a former employer regarding a non-compete agreement. Highly recommend!"

Very Empathetic as Well as Realistic

"Andy was my attorney and he was great! He was very empathetic as well as realistic when it came to all possible outcomes regarding my case. Andy was also very prompt in his responses whenever I had a question. Even though It wasn't the exact outcome I wanted because of my son's father being so unreasonable it was still better than letting the judge decide my case completely. Andy advised me to go to private mediation and that's what I did. Of course with my son's father being so unreasonable he didn't agree to much, but I went with Andy's and the mediator's advice which seems to be the best course of action for now until my son is school age. I will definitely look forward to having Any represent me again in the future when needed. I can't stress this enough of future clients of Andy or any other attorney: be thorough when explaining your issues to your attorney so that they can come to a better understanding of your case and help you come to the best solution/outcome possible."

Extremely Knowledgeable and Very Efficient and Thorough

"My attorney Andy Goldstein was amazing throughout my entire case. He was extremely knowledgeable and very efficient and thorough. I believe his hard work and attention to detail was the reason for the timely completion of my divorce. I would highly recommend the Cole Law Group and Andy Goldstein specifically."

Communication Was Exceptional

"I have worked with several attorneys over the past few years, and Andy Goldstein was the most professional and pleasant of them all. His communication was exceptional. He always responded quickly and thoroughly to my questions and concerns. Andy always maintained his composure and professionalism during periods of high stress (and there were many). I felt comfortable taking his advice and grew to trust him. He is a good person, easy to talk to, and a hard worker. Thanks for your help Andy."

Not Only A Good Attorney, But Thoroughly A Good Person

"Andy Goldstein is one of the most professional attorneys I have yet to meet. My business had a very unique case re: a John Doe Lawsuit towards a business / competitor leaving my company negative and fake one-star reviews. Despite the complexity of the case, Andy handled it with the utmost knowledge, advice, and respect. He traveled multiple times from Nashville to Knoxville to make sure my voice was being heard. He is not only a good attorney though, but thoroughly a good person. Even when politics played into our case in Knoxville, Andy still was professional, respectful, and always had such a good demeanor - his character as a person cannot be attested to more. I highly recommend Andy Goldstein and am glad I chose him to represent my business case."

Nothing Short Of Spectacular

"Cole Law Group has been nothing short of spectacular for myself and family. Their knowledge and experience is a solid and valuable asset to have at one's disposal in today's world."

Cared About Me And My Wellbeing

"I found Cole Law online because they offered services that pertained to my specific case. I met with Todd Cole to see if my case would be a good fit and I felt very comfortable and confident that they were the firm I wanted to work with. Because of Todd's background, he brings some things to the table that most attorneys don't and that is exactly what I needed. I also worked with Andy Goldstein who handled the day to day matters of my case while he consulted with Todd daily. Andy is incredibly hard working, smart, kind, and great at what he does. He's a great lawyer. My case was traumatic and life disrupting for me. But I always felt like Todd and Andy cared about me and my wellbeing and did everything in their power to resolve my case quickly and justly. At no time did I feel like they were running up the clock and fees to pad their pockets. They wrapped up my case as quickly as possible. They were always well prepared, did what they said they would do, and were thorough to make sure that I didn't suffer harm down the road as a result of my case. They made it water tight. My case was resolved to my satisfaction and I cannot recommend them more highly."

Highly Recommend

"With filing all the paper work and additional requests from immigration it took a little over a year for my husband to get his green card. Andy Goldstein was very helpful with everything through the process. Always would get a call or email back within that day or the next morning to answer any questions we had about the case or with any updates they had about the case."

Did An Incredible Job Representing Me

"Andy Goldstein did an incredible job representing me and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. He's great at communicating and helped me work through my best options in a timely manner. I had great interactions with the rest of the Cole Law staff and I would highly recommend Andy."

Went Above And Beyond

"Well, my review is long overdue but I hope to help Cole Law Group start 2022 with an awesome review! I originally found Cole Law Group due to my prior attorney's poor communication and failure to represent me to the best of her ability. I will say this, if you find yourself in a custody battle be prepared to spend money. My court case basically started at the beginning of COVID, which made everything even more complicated and longer. In the end everything was worth the wait. My attorney, Mr. Goldstein, went above and beyond! Mr. Goldstein is best described as: honest, hard working, thorough, kind, straightforward, realistic, man of integrity, and supportive of his clients! I highly recommend Mr. Goldstein and Cole Law Group for any of your legal needs. Always, listen to Mr. Goldstein and trust he has your back. He will fight for you as a client through the good and bad. In my opinion the people need more attorneys like him. Thank you Cole Law Group, most importantly thank you Mr. Goldstein for your hard work and dedication!"

Communicative, Collaborative and Professional To The Core

"My previous attorney hadn't done much in two years to move my relatively simple divorce to completion. After reading Cole Law's reviews and speaking to Andy Goldstein, I quickly hired him as replacement counsel. Communicative, collaborative, and professional to the core, Andy got me across the finish line in two months."

Deserves 10 Stars

"I highly recommend Cole Law Group, definitely great customer service and professionalism. I am very grateful for the help I always receive from them. I was dealing with another attorney in the beginning of my case, I felt my case is not moving forward, then I decided to look for another attorney. I heard about Cole Law Group. I called them and I talked with Mr. Andy Goldstein. We talked for an hour on the phone, he was very patient with me, then I met him in his office. I felt from the first time that he knows what he is doing and I said this is the right person to handle my case, and I was right. Once he started to work on my case all the situation changed to my side. My case started to move forward so quickly and the case has been resolved. He worked so hard on my case and stayed in his office until midnight every time we had court date next day to make sure everything is ready for next day. He takes care of all the small details, and cares about his clients to be on the best image in front of the judge. Mr. Andy, thank you so much for everything you have done, you deserve 10 stars."

Provided Incredible Insight And Guidance

"Mr. Tennison embodied knowledge and professionalism. I am trying to obtain awards that I earned while serving in Afghanistan and Mr. Tennison provided incredible insight and guidance as to how the previous determinations were made and how to proceed. He was very honest about the value he and his firm could provide. I will be using Mr. Tennison and his firm in the event I have these issues in the future."

Complete Transparency

"I went to Cole Law Group because of an ongoing case I had with another lawyer that, unfortunately, was being drawn out almost a year longer than it should have been. I was beyond frustrated and decided to reach out. From the initial consultation with Andy Goldstein, I felt a relief for the first time in a long time and decided to allow him to take over and represent my case instead. From beginning to end, I received updates on every part of the process. Also, the complete transparency was a breath of fresh air considering the previous situation. A month later and my case has finally been resolved. I can't thank the Cole Law Group and Andy Goldstein enough for taking care of this. If you need a lawyer, don't hesitate to give them a chance."

10/10 Would Recommend

"We couldn't have navigated the green card process without them. They were quick to respond to questions. Worth the money. 10/10 would recommend."

Very Responsive And Very Informative

"VERY pleased with Cole Law Group! They were very responsive, and very informative. I will be using them in the future for any and all of my legal situations. Thank You Cole Law Group!"

Extremely Knowledgeable, Helpful, And Honest

"I highly recommend this firm! I hired Paul and was very pleased with his services throughout the entire process. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and honest. He went above and beyond to make sure every detail was covered and I could not be happier with my experience. He was quick on his feet during trial, his arguments were persuasive, and he achieved a better outcome than I could have hoped for."

A Credible Firm That Is On the Client's Side

"Highly recommend this firm for their courtesy, empathy, as well as knowledge. They could have billed me but didn’t Bc there was no case. This is the sign of a credible firm that is on the client's side."

Witnessed Firsthand The Professionalism And Dedication

"I've witnessed firsthand the professionalism and dedication that Cole Law Group brings to their clients and cases. I've recommended people to them and will continue to do so."

All Around Great Experience

"I had an all around great experience. Very responsive lawyer, quick turnaround time, understandable explanations to unfamiliar topics, and genuine people. I can highly recommend Andy Goldstein and the broader team."

A Beacon Of Hope

"Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Cole were a beacon of hope for me when my choices were limited and the likelihood of having a satisfactory resolution with my former spouse looked impossible. Not only were they able to look out for my best interest, but their calm and empathetic demeanor offered both amazing legal advice and emotional support for myself. I am eternally grateful for their service and I wholeheartedly recommend the Cole Law Group without reservation."

Exceptional Representation

"Paul Tennison of the Cole Law Group was exceptional in representation of my legal issue. If I ever need legal assistance in the future he is definitely the one that I would reach out to first."

Best Experience I've Had

"Based on my previous experiences with attorneys, working with Paul is, by *far*, the best experience I’ve had. He answers emails, he returns calls, he is professional, he is thorough, and he gets results. You won’t go wrong by choosing him to represent you."

Communication Was Key

"After 16 years in the Military, I had to unfortunately fight to keep my security clearance by appealing matters before a DOHA Judge. After many phone calls, Cole Law Group was the only firm willing to take the case. Mr Tennison, being a service member himself was not only knowledgeable, but served as a great sounding board during our 8 month preparation for the hearing. Communication was key, and there was never a time that I felt that I couldn't call or email him. Mr Tennison was always quick to respond and if I had concerns about something, he was great at bringing me back to center. I would definitely use this firm again, simply for the professionalism, knowledge and military knowledge."

Brilliant Legal Mind

"It was a pleasure working with Andy Goldstein and the Cole Law Group. Andy was always prompt & available even after hours. We always felt confident in our case with Andy's guidance and superior knowledge. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to work with Andy and the Cole Law Group to help with our business ventures and have the support of Andy's brilliant, legal mind!"

Was Very Informative

"Paul was very informative and answered all of my questions thoroughly. He gave me a template and looked over other documents I had."

Provided Me Genuine Peace Of Mind

"I am compelled to share this review so others may benefit from Cole Law Group's team of professionals and highly skilled staff. I contacted this team as per a recommendation and I will be recommending them to everyone I know. I worked with Attorney Paul Tennison and was impressed from day one. He and I spoke over the phone and he provided a well thought out and organized game plan for our case. From there, Paul was responsive, excelled at communication, and provided a full package armed with everything needed plus so much more. The work Paul and his team put together is second to none. I can't say enough about the quality work they put together for my case. Paul and his team provided me genuine peace of mind even without the verdict...that's how much of a high quality product Cole Law Group provided for me. Thank you!"


"Group of professionals!"

Successfully Represented Us In Timely Fashion

"Mr. Goldstein and his team were a pleasure to deal with and provided sufficient information regarding the steps, time course and outcomes of our case. He successfully represented us in timely fashion, was always promptly present for feedback and advice throughout the process. I would highly recommend him."

Reliable Legal Counsel

"Cole Law Group did a phenomenal job resolving my unique real estate predicament. Mr. Goldstein was very receptive to my needs and truly understood the uncomfortable situation my family and I were put in. He handled the matter with a high degree of professionalism and was able to resolve the situation in a highly effective manner. I would highly recommend both Cole Law Group and Mr. Goldstein to anyone seeking reliable legal counsel."

Fair And Thorough Representation

"I was being bullied and got fair and thorough representation through Cole Law Group who set things right again. Thank you so much for making things easy and equitable."

Gave Great Counsel And Protected My Interests

"In the midst of a trying divorce settlement, Todd Cole and team lent invaluable experience and expertise to drive a successful conclusion. They gave great counsel and protected my interests while being sympathetic to the sensitivity of matters. An absolutely great team to work with!"

As Professionals, Just Astounding

"Before you read the entire review, let me give you some background. I am a mother of three children under the age of 7 and I was in a terrible place where I had nowhere to turn but into a lawsuit. I am not allowed to talk about it as it has concluded and all parties “agreed to a beautiful resolution.” Thank you for that Cole Law Group! That all being said, I want to tell you we are extremely happy and cannot believe this has all come to an end. Since I cannot talk about my case, I want to talk about this entire law group. I know nothing about being a lawyer, but I know about people. It’s my business being in the restaurant business for over 20 years.Things you cannot teach people are their personalities, their integrity, and their work ethic. I would normally say I wouldn’t want to sit at a table for 10 hours with a bunch of lawyers, but I would invite all these people to my house at my dinner table anytime. That is just how much we liked them as people. Now, as professionals, just astounding. There was such a calmness and a genuine strength that they exhibit because they simply knew the law. It was amazing to see the back and forth of their work and never once be wavering or scrambling. There was not one time this entire process where I knew I couldn’t trust them with the legal issues at hand and the pressures of having my family on the line. I was so fortunate to find them and them take my case. I also have to touch on the cost. They were completely respectful with billing. Often they assured me that they were taking billing into account to keep it at a minimum. I was so grateful for this integrity that normally you don’t just find. What it cost me was worth every cent and more, truly. You can’t pay for the peace of mind that their work accomplished for us at the end. If I had to do this all over again, I would and I would be so delighted to work with this team again. Excited actually! Moving forward, knowing that if I am ever in any situation like the one I found myself in, I know I will be covered in the legal aspect of it and I can’t wait to give them a call! Thank you from our entire family, you guys are truly the best."

Communicative, Collaborative, And Professional To The Core

"My previous attorney hadn't done much in two years to move my relatively simple divorce to completion. After reading Cole Law's reviews and speaking to Andy Goldstein, I quickly hired him as replacement counsel. Communicative, collaborative, and professional to the core, Andy got me across the finish line in two months."

Highly Responsive, Caring And Professional Law Firm

"A highly responsive, caring and professional law firm. Very impressed with their services, attention to detail and follow through. My case did not work out in the end in my favor due to statute of limitations in the state, but the firm held my hand every step of the way. Highly recommend them."

Responded Quickly To My Questions

"I appreciate the assistance I received from Cole Law Group recently. The team was knowledgeable and helpful and they responded quickly to my questions. Thank you."

Did A Great Job Preparing Documents For Our Visas

"Attorney Todd Cole did a great job preparing necessary documents for our visas. Cole Law Group staff was very professional and we recommend it to anyone even if you are abroad."

Honest, Accessible, And Above All Human

"Excellent team, responsible, honest, accessible and above all human."

Gave 100% In Every Aspect

"I couldn't of asked for a better experience from the Cole Law Group. Mr. Tennison was always knowledgeable, patient and very prompt with my questions. He made me feel at ease with my case and I believe he gave 100% in every aspect. I would highly recommend the Cole Law Group."

Definitely Recommend To Anyone Needing Honest And Reliable Service

"Paul Tennison was an excellent person to worth with. Not only did he take the time to explain the law in a manner I could understand, he was also very upfront with the cost associated. His office was able to turn around the documents very quickly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing honest and reliable service."

Used This Law Group Twice With Excellent Results

"We have used this law group twice with excellent results. The people are very nice and professional. I highly recommend Todd Cole Law Group!"

An Amazing Professional

"It's my great pleasure to strongly recommend Cole Law Group and Mr. Andy Goldstein. Initially, I had a few consultations with attorneys at Cole Law Group related to several interrelated complex issues. During these consultations, I always found the attorneys at Cole Group very sincere in not only feeling the client's perspective but also dissecting complex legal issues for the client to understand in plain words. It was then when I was introduced to Mr. Goldstein for advice on my visa related issue. I was completely amazed with Mr. Goldstein's ability to simultaneously consider several interrelated complex issues and identify the most urgent task needing immediate consideration within client's resources. Eventually, I hired Mr. Goldstein and he delivered quality services as agreed upon in the contract. I found Mr. Goldstein an amazing professional who not only greatly understands immigration law, but also enabled me to understand complex legal matters through his charismatic delivery techniques. On top of that, he is very sensitive to agreed-upon deadlines and put in extra hours of work (even on weekends) to compensate for any delay that may happen. As one example, due to a sudden, completely understandable and unavoidable professional commitment of Mr. Goldstein, one of our meetings scheduled for Friday could not be done. Mr. Goldstein immediately communicated to me and in fact scheduled the meeting on Saturday out of his personal time. He respects his client's time and is very flexible in making up meeting arrangements in a way that best suits his client. Finally, I was very impressed with Mr. Goldstein's unique writing skills, enabling him to synthesize not only complex legal issues in an effective manner but also to summarize multidimensional yet seemingly unrelated complex technical science-based information."

Attorney There Was Very Helpful And Took His Time

"The attorney there was very helpful and he took his time explaining everything we needed to know to move forward with a decision."

This Group Can Get Anything You Need Done!

"This group can get anything you need done! They can do just about any kind of court issues! When you hire these guys you will walk away feeling confident that they will get things done for you!"

Did Not Bait Me For Money

"The Cole Law Group assisted in developing a plan of action for my legal issues. They did not bait me for money or pretend that my case was a slam dunk. And the best part was that it will reap tangible benefits when I'm ready to go to court."

Walked Me Through A Long And Taxing Litigation Like They Were My Family

"Every member of Cole Law Group walked me through a long and taxing litigation like they were my family. I can not say enough good things about this firm. There is no other firm that I would have placed my trust in like I did Todd Cole and Cole Law Group and I am so grateful for the way they were able to resolve my case! HIGHLY recommend."

Attention To Detail Is Second To None

"The Cole Law Group came highly recommended and far exceeded my expectations. The firm is very professional and their attention to detail is second to none. They respond to emails and phone messages in a timely manner. They make me feel as if I am their only client and I never feel out of the loop from the planning and execution of our strategies to the courtroom battles. Overall I am very happy with the success of our cases as well as our relationship and look forward to Cole Law Group being our go-to firm for our legal matters."

Willing To Fight The Good Fight

"My experience with Cole Law Group revolves around a breach of contract with my previous employer. Once terminated, I sought legal counsel. I found that either the lawyers that I contacted didn't understand the case or weren't interested in fighting a local giant. Cole Law Group was different. They weren't afraid, but more importantly they were willing to fight the good fight. I found Mr. Cole to be professional, precise and compassionate in handling my case. During the depositions he was analytical and strategic in asking questions. All this aside, I find that when I have a question about the case Mr. Cole or his coworkers are always there to answer any concerns I may have. I would recommend Cole Law Group to anyone who has a legal problem."

Professional Group That Shows Compassion

"Todd Cole, Attorney at Law, is well-educated and knowledgable. He and his staff work extremely hard to support your case. They are a professional group that shows compassion for what you have endured in a situation that requires legal advice and support. I recommend them wholeheartedly."

Can Warmly Recommend Todd To Other Clients

"We are a Swedish company focused to save energy. Our business has been established in Tennessee with the help of Todd Cole in collaboration with our Swedish lawyers. He has assisted in the establishment of the necessary agreements. In addition, Todd advised about American business models. This information was managed in the best possible way and we can warmly recommend Todd to other clients."

Highly Recommend Mr. Cole For Any Business Litigation

"We hired Todd Cole to help with a business dispute. Mr. Cole was very professional to work with and took the time to learn about our business before ever contacting the claimant. Because of Mr. Cole's ability to diffuse the situation and his expertise in negotiating, we were able to not only come to an agreement for settling the concern, but he was also a key factor for us to retain the working relationship we had previous to the claim. If it was not for Mr. Cole I believe we would have lost a major client and possibly our business. I would highly recommend Mr. Cole for any business litigation, either large or small. Heaven forbid we have another issue such as this, but if we do I know Mr. cole will be the first person I call."
