About me

Recognized as an experienced and successful trial attorney, Coleman is dedicated to achieving superior results for all of his clients in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, brain injury, airplane accidents and product liability. He passionately litigates on their behalf and is undeterred by difficult circumstances or special challenges.

With impressive skill in the courtroom, Coleman presents thoroughly prepared cases in a persuasive and articulate manner. He often takes creative and innovative approaches in order to advance his clients’ causes.

While he thrives in a courtroom environment, Coleman is equally well known for his skills as an accomplished negotiator. Understanding the costs, risks and delays associated with litigation, he has distinguished himself by negotiating effectively very favorable settlements for his clients. Whether in the courtroom or through negotiation, he strives to achieve the best result he can for his clients.

Coleman promotes great professionalism and legal expertise by actively and eagerly sharing his knowledge and skills with his colleagues, both inside the law firm and with the bar generally. He often leads seminars and panels to instruct and facilitate discussions focusing on personal injury practice, insurance and trial advocacy.

In the strong tradition of his father and grandfather before him, Coleman recognizes the importance of working closely with local, state and federal politicians to maintain and improve rights for personal injury victims. He understands the critical importance of ensuring the rights of others throughout all government systems and branches.
