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.

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.  Ross brings the same work ethic and values to the job every day that he learned growing up in Pike County.  Ross believes trial by jury is the last and only true opportunity for citizens to hold the corporations and powerful business interests responsible and accountable, and to that end is eager to try any case to jury to obtain full justice for his client.

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 malpractice, hospital negligence, and catastrophic personal injury.  He has a particular interest in prosecuting violations of Commonwealth and Federal nursing home safety regulations, as well as the Elder Justice Act of 2010.

Ross 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).

Ross was named to the “Kentucky Rising Star” list by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2017 and 2018 – 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.

Ross walked on the football team at the University of Michigan before earning a full athletic scholarship and lettering for two seasons.  He 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.

Outside of Hughes & Coleman, Ross enjoys spending time with his family and is an active member of his church community.  He also enjoys traveling and is an avid reader who likes to read every book he can find the time to read.
