I was born and raised in Blytheville, Arkansas and was enrolled at Blytheville High School. After graduating, I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville on a Leadership Scholarship where I graduated with a B.A. in History. Having loved my undergraduate experience in Fayetteville, I decided to pursue my legal education at the University of Arkansas School of Law. During law school, I focused much of my attention toward criminal law, litigation, and trial practice. During law school, I also clerked for Taylor Law Partners while also actively participating in the both Mediation and Innocence Project Clinics.
After law school, I returned to Blytheville to assist my father, Bobby Coleman, in his civil ligation practice, Reid, Burge, Prevallet, and Coleman. While there, I assisted the firm in settling a wrongful death action against the Arkansas State Police for $2.97 million, representing the largest wrongful death award in history by the Arkansas Claims Commission. I eventually returned to Northwest Arkansas where I worked in Social Security Disability and Personal Injury at the Wayne Young Law Firm in Fayetteville. While with Wayne Young, I was involved in over 700 administrative law hearings and filed over 70 appellate briefs against the Social Security Administration in the Eastern and Western District Courts of Arkansas.
Since joining Steven H. Kay & Associates, I am still assisting clients with Personal Injury, Family Law, Civil Litigation, and Social Security Disability cases, but have also expanded my practice to Immigration Law. Having a good understanding of the bureaucratic obstacles that are all too common in Social Security Disability, my skill set is well suited to help people with the many pitfalls involved in the administrative process for Immigration. I enjoy having the opportunity to help clients from diverse backgrounds who all have the same goal in mind: the American dream!
I became an attorney to help people, and I strive to provide each one of my clients the individualized attention they deserve. It is my mission to make you comfortable with your legal situation—whether it be Personal Injury, Social Security Disability, or Immigration—having confidence knowing that you have a fighter in your corner.
