About me

I am a family man and have been married to my wife, Honorable JoAnn Spinks Coleman, Retired Warren District Judge since 1981.  Together we have three children: Jonathan, Benjamin and Andrew, as well as 2 grandchildren Matthan and Eli.


I have been a practicing attorney since 1981.  I attended the University of Kentucky (BBA, 1978) and received my legal training from the University of Louisville (Juris Doctorate, 1981).  I am admitted to practice law in Tennessee, Kentucky and New Mexico, and admitted to practice before: U.S. Court of Appeals, United States District Court, Sixth District, Western District of KY and Middle District of TN.


I love helping injured victims.  Let me help you today!
