Knoxville Family Law Attorney Felicia Coalson

Felicia Coalson came to us in 2015 with a wealth of legal background and experience. Felicia began her legal career as Assistant City Attorney for the City of Memphis. She enjoyed the challenges that came with being part of a large municipal legal team.  She both defended the city and advised the multiple departments and boards for the city.  She advised the Emergency Management Agency, Finance, Pension, Engineering, Alcohol Commissions, Public Works, Police, and Fire Departments. Felicia was also instrumental in the establishment and implementation of a new tax collection system for the City of Memphis.

After being blessed with a set of twins, Felicia came back to her roots here in Knoxville.  She opened a creditor’s bankruptcy office here in Knoxville then worked with Bond, Botes & Lawson on the debtor bankruptcy side of the law.  Upon a sweeping redrafting of the bankruptcy law, Felicia spent several years principally practicing in the area of Real Estate Law.  Although quite successful, her passion lay elsewhere.

Felicia’s heart had always been drawn to seniors and the special issues they face each and every day. Recognizing a legal need for service with seniors, in 2010 Felicia began to focus her practice on elder law with an emphasis on estate planning. As elder law was an emerging service area with our firm’s clientele, Felicia was a natural fit. Since Felicia has been with our firm, she has truly found her place.  She concentrates her practice in the matters of probate including litigation and administration, simple and complex estate planning, elder law, conservatorships and business transitions.  Felicia is proud to be a partner in a law firm with an excellent reputation that works tirelessly to be of benefit to its clients and the community.
