Coyreen joined the firm as an Attorney in 2020. She grew up in Laurel, Montana and pursued her undergraduate studies at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana earning her Associate of Arts degree in Paralegal Studies and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management. While pursuing her undergraduate studies, Coy worked for one of the largest insurance agents in Montana. During her time at Rocky, she gained an acute interest in law and, at the urging of her professors, she pursued law school.
Coy earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1995 from Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon. During law school, Coy clerked for the Appellate Division of Oregon's Department of Justice where she authored numerous briefs and had the opportunity to argue several cases as a certified law student before the Oregon Court of Appeals. Additionally, Coy served as Form Editor of the Willamette Law Review, received high honors in Legal Research and Writing and Elder Law, and finished law school ranked in the top ten of her class (8/158).
After graduating law school, Coy sat for and passed the Oregon bar exam. She then began a two-year judicial clerkship with the Honorable Carl N. Byers of the Oregon Tax Court. From 1997 to 2007, Coy served as an appointed Magistrate with the Oregon Tax Court where she was one of the first women to sit on the court.
From 2007 to 2019, Coy stepped away from the practice of law to focus on raising her three children. In 2017, she moved with her family to Iowa. Determined to reenter the practice of law, Coy sat for and successfully passed the Iowa bar examination in February 2020. Since then, Coy has been an active member of the Firm's Vaccine Litigation Group. In February 2021, Coy was admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims broadening her ability to assist injured persons pursuing claims in the NVICP.
During her spare time, Coy likes to spend time with her three children cheering them on at their various activities and events. She also has a love for country music and enjoys a good concert.
