Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I, a native of Memphis, TN., am a graduate of Memphis Central High School, and of The University of Memphis; I then graduated from Southern University Law Center. After graduating from Southern, I moved to Washington D.C., where I worked as a policy analyst, writing policy for the United States Department of Agriculture.

I then worked at a subrogation firm negotiating insurance claims for companies across the United States, including Walmart and Home Depot. After that, I worked as a Staff Attorney at the Center for Arkansas Legal Services in Pine Bluff, AR. While there, I went before the court for clients who had civil rights claims; I also handled landlord/tenant cases. I represented clients in guardianship hearings, and drafted documents for clients planning their estates. I also successfully argued several cases before the Social Security Administration for individuals who were repeatedly denied SSI/SSDI.

Once I left Legal Services, I worked for the biggest criminal defense law firm in the State of Arkansas, where I practiced in both State and Federal Court. I handled cases ranging from traffic tickets in district court to aggravated robbery and sex crimes.

While I do manage my own firm, I am also a public defender in Faulkner County, AR. The experiences I have garnered in my previous positions have equipped me with the knowledge necessary to assist in your case. Do not hesitate to reach out to the Law Offices of J. Paul Coleman.
