How Can We Help?

Heather Wade

“The practice of law allows me to spend my time speaking on behalf of those that are unable to speak for themselves.  There is no greater feeling than helping someone through a difficult time in their life.”
Heather grew up the only child of two parents who always encouraged her to strive for success, set her sights high and work hard to achieve her goals. She decided at a young age that she wanted to be an attorney and she’s worked tirelessly to achieve and exceed her goals in the profession ever since.

Heather knew the road to becoming a lawyer was a long one. She was eager to start helping people reclaim their lives and worked actively to get an early start. She graduated early from high school so that she could begin her college education. Heather graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Economics in just three and a half years. During her undergraduate career, Heather was a founding member of the Economics Club and played Rugby for the intramural women’s team.

After graduating from college, Heather attended the University of Kentucky College of Law where she earned her Juris Doctor degree. Following law school, Heather got her feet wet in the field by working for a family law attorney for a few years. After she gained enough experience, Heather utilized her determination and self-starter attitude to open and manage her own practice. During these eight years at her own firm, she worked diligently to develop a respectable reputation as a lawyer, working primarily on family law cases and putting her compassion to good use with children in foster care.

Heather’s Hughes & Coleman journey began in our intake department, where she originally worked as our Intake Attorney. After two years in this role, she transitioned to the Mass Torts Attorney position. In this position, Heather works to hold negligent manufacturers responsible for their products and help injured clients through a very difficult time in their lives. She continues to proudly serve each and every client that comes her way.

Heather is also an active member of the Bowling Green community. She is the current Chair of the Warren County Code Enforcement Board and serves on the Committee for the Local Suicide Prevention Walk.
