Biography

Mr. Coleman is now the Managing Partner and majority owner of Hughes and Coleman Injury Lawyers, a firm he cofounded in 1985 with J. Marshall Hughes. The firm has grown during its 37 years, and currently has 30 attorneys and 10 offices in Kentucky and Tennessee, and an affiliated firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lee is proud that two of his sons, Benjamin and Andrew, are attorneys practicing with H&C. Lee earned his Law Degree from the University of Louisville, graduating in 1981, and earned his undergraduate Business Administration degree from the University of Kentucky, graduating in 1978.

In 1985 Lee and Mr. Hughes started Hughes & Coleman, and Lee began representing injury victims. Lee found that the clients who hired H&C needed help, and that he enjoyed helping them. Most of his clients were workers injured in a wreck or on the job. During those early years, Lee was the lead attorney in charge of the H&C courtroom work, including trying at least 20 cases to a Jury Verdict. Today H&C aggressively pursues maximum compensation for each of their thousands of injured clients.

Mr. Coleman’s efforts and accomplishments have been widely recognized, including being named as a Kentucky Super Lawyer in Personal Injury since 2012, and being awarded an AV Rating, the highest rating given, by the nation’s preeminent Attorney Rating service, Martindale- Hubbell®. Since the 1990’s Lee has presided over the M&L Legal Marketing and Management, a seminar attended by Personal Injury law firms, helping him develop close ties with successful injury lawyers across the country.

Outside of H&C Lee stays active through travel with his wife and family, playing golf, bicycling, and snow skiing. Lee’s wife of 41 years is Warren District Court Judge, the Hon. JoAnn Spinks Coleman, retired. In addition to Ben and Andy, their third son Johnathan is a physician in Chicago. Lee and JoAnn have six grandchildren.
