How Can We Help?

Paul Kevin Hackworth

“For over 20 years, I have been blessed with the opportunity to help clients that are going through difficult times.  Nothing in this life is easy, but having someone by your side fighting for you through difficult situations makes even the worst day a little brighter.”
Kevin, a Paintsville, Kentucky native, began his legal career as a public servant, working as an Assistant County Attorney. He continues to be a voice for his clients in their pursuit of justice.

Kevin has spent his career representing clients throughout the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky, from Pikeville to Paducah. With experience in medical malpractice claims, civil litigation, and criminal cases, Kevin has represented victims on nearly all fronts. 

His path to becoming a lawyer started first with Kevin earning a B.A. in Political Science, graduating with distinction from the University of Kentucky. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law. 

Prior to joining Hughes & Coleman, Kevin worked in public service as Assistant County Attorney for the Carter County Attorney’s Office in Grayson, Kentucky, before going into private practice. During his career, Mr. Hackworth has represented clients in a wide range of civil litigation and criminal matters, with his focus primarily in the area of medical malpractice litigation. He has obtained million dollar plus settlements for Plaintiffs and defense verdicts for physicians and hospitals in 15 jury trials, as well as having effectively defended criminal clients, including a death penalty client acquitted of capital murder. 

Away from the office, Kevin enjoys spending time with his wife, Julie, and daughter, Annabelle. An avid photographer, Kevin feels as comfortable behind a camera as he does in a courtroom. He also enjoys soaking up some sun while hiking, fishing or visiting America’s National Parks.
