Who am I?


My name is Kim Coleman and I have more than 20 years of experience as a bankruptcy lawyer. The photos are of myself and my daughter. I was born and raised in the Cincinnati area and received my law degree from Salmon P. Chase College of Law. 

During my career, I have practiced law in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia helping people and businesses reorganize or wipe out their debt. I have represented hundreds of clients, and handled hundreds of court appearances. 

Here are a few points you might like to know about me:

  • I have helped hundreds of individuals and families end their bill problems, save their homes, and secure their financial future.
  • I know cutting edge tactics and techniques for protecting consumers against bill collectors.
  • I am a debt relief agency. I help people file for bankruptcy using the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
  • Since I graduated law school, I have been practicing both consumer and business bankruptcy law, but now focus solely on helping consumers, like you, who are in financial distress.
  • I live in the Cincinnati area with my family, a rambunctious dog, and 2 chill cats.

As your Cincinnati bankruptcy attorney, I would love to help you find a solution to your debt problems, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

How I can help you

As your experienced and compassionate Cincinnati bankruptcy lawyer, below I list short descriptions of some of the services I can assist you with, including Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Debt Settlement, and Rebuilding your Credit. I also assist you  with stopping debt collector harassment, stopping foreclosure, mortgage loan modification, and understanding your options with student loans.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

often the quickest, most effective path to regaining financial security, you typically get to keep all of your assets

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

allows you to restructure your debt into a manageable payment plan, you typically only have to pay a portion of your unsecured debt, if any

Debt Settlement

when bankruptcy is not needed or feasible, I can help you bring your creditors to the negotiating table to reduce your debt burden

Life After Bankruptcy

bankruptcy provides a fresh start & allows you to regain control over your financial life, I can help you with credit building strategies

Creditor Harrassment

if creditors are contacting you, I can let you know how to handle them and help you fight them if they have violated your rights

Student Loans

while we await student loan reform, I can explain your repayment options and how bankruptcy affects your student loans 

Happy clients

I was facing a lawsuit for a credit card debt and I am thankful that I found Coleman & Kempinski. I worked with Kimberly and was very satisfied with her expertise, accessibility and sympathetic manner. Many law firms have answering services that take their calls and you don’t get to speak to an actual attorney until you are in their office. I was able to pick up the phone and speak directly with Kimberly and immediately discuss my situation. This was particularly important because I was in a serious time crunch. I felt like I was treated compassionately and most importantly Kimberly’s advice empowered me to negotiate my debt down by 35%, a major savings! I would highly recommend Coleman & Kempinski if you are facing any legal financial issues.

Knowing that these are really difficult times for everybody, I still was not anxious to consider bankruptcy. I phoned and spoke to Kim at length who asked some questions and used both ears to listen! Working with Kim was a real pleasure. Easy to get a hold of, and if left messages she always returned the call. As a former Colonel from MASH used to say, “There’s not enough O’s in Smooth!” Kim made the entire process painless! Call her with questions. 



So, a bankruptcy attorney isn’t somewhere you ever want to go. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right? Well, working with Kim Coleman was perfectly smooth all the way. I had the feeling that I was doing something positive, and a year later I still do. Kim still answers my calls for tips about getting back on track. Just have questions to see if bankruptcy is for you? That’s how I started, and I’m happy to write a review for this small independent Philly company.
