How Can We Help?


“Advocating and fighting for the vulnerable and voiceless is not an occupation, but a calling.”
Ross is the son of an Eastern Kentucky family physician and emergency room nurse, and like his parents has dedicated his career to helping people.

Originally from Pikeville, Kentucky, Ross graduated from Lexington Catholic High School before attending the University of Michigan.  He walked on the football team at the University of Michigan and earned academic All-Big Ten honors, and was a part of three Big Ten Championship football teams.  He then graduated from Capital University Law School in 2009 where he received the Brian A. Freeman Scholarship for Excellence in Constitutional Law.

Ross is a relentless advocate and exclusively fights for victims of corporate misconduct in the setting of nursing home abuse and neglect, financial exploitation of the elderly in nursing homes, medical negligence, hospital negligence, and catastrophic personal injury.  He has a particular interest in prosecuting violations of Commonwealth and Federal safety regulations, as well as the Elder Justice Act of 2010.

He has tried corporate nursing home abuse and neglect cases to jury verdict in 2015 ($18 million – Madison Co., KY), 2016 ($1.1 million – Hardin Co., KY), and 2017 ($28.55 million – McCracken Co., KY), and is eager to try any case to jury to obtain justice for his client.

Ross was named to the “Kentucky Rising Star” list by Super Lawyers Magazine – an honor awarded to attorneys in Kentucky who have been practicing for 10 years or less. The recognition is awarded to no more than 2.5 percent of all practicing attorneys in Kentucky.

Outside of Hughes & Coleman, Ross enjoys spending time with his wife and son and is an active member of his church.
