Heather C. Brooks

Heather C. Brooks: Attorney with English, Lucas, Priest & Owsley, LLP


Communication is paramount in the practice of law. Whether it is interpreting the words of a contract, analyzing opinions of the courts, or drafting a legal argument, the outcome of a case often hinges on the written word. As a former newspaper editor, Heather Coleman knows the importance of being able to communicate in a clear and concise manner.

“An attorney’s role is to be a voice for the client,” Heather said. “You must tell your client’s story. You have to know the facts, be well versed in the law, and be persuasive in your arguments. The success of the case depends on it.”

Heather graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in print journalism. She started her career at a regional group of publications in South Central Kentucky, and rose through the ranks eventually being named managing editor of a small newspaper. Ready for a new challenge, Heather decided to attend the University of Kentucky College of Law and quickly found that legal education incorporated many facets she enjoyed of her former profession. “I enjoy researching and writing, of course,” Heather said, “but more than that I enjoy delving into complex issues, identifying problems and offering creative solutions.”

Upon graduating from law school, Heather knew she wanted to return to Bowling Green, and working for ELPO was ideal. “This firm has a top-notch reputation statewide,” Heather said. “I knew I wanted to learn from and work beside the best. I am glad to be back in Bowling Green and am looking forward to working with the firm’s diverse client base.”
