JOSHUA COFFMAN – ATTORNEY
Joshua was licensed as an attorney in 2007 and began his career as a state and local tax associate for KPMG, LLP where he provided tax-consulting services to Fortune 500 and other publicly traded companies. Recognizing a need in the community through his work with Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas, Joshua decided to transition to family law and focus exclusively on providing legal advocacy and counsel to families in distress.

Joshua is committed to walk with his clients through what is often the most difficult time of their lives. His technical skill and detailed knowledge of the law provide wisdom in the midst of emotional turmoil, and it is his goal to offer his clients hope and a chance at success in relationships and in life.
Joshua is an avid learner and enjoys reading books on former U.S. presidents, World War II, and Christian theology. When he does take his glasses off, he loves spending time outdoors with his family or trying out a new local restaurant.

NANCY COFFMAN – PARALEGAL
Nancy joined The Law Office of Joshua Coffman in January 2015 bringing with her an extensive knowledge of the legal system. She has nearly 30 years experience as a litigation paralegal.
Her career began in 1988 as a legal assistant for a prominent personal injury attorney, followed by 15 years in the corporate world as a paralegal for Allstate and Nationwide Insurance Company.
In 2011, Nancy accepted a position to work for attorney James A. Edwards at Zimmerman Kiser Sutcliffe in Orlando, Florida. While at ZKS, Nancy assisted Mr. Edwards in complex civil litigation matters which included high profile personal injury and wrongful death claims.
In November 2014, Mr. Edwards was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott as a judge to the Fifth District Court of Appeal. The timing was perfect as Joshua was looking to expand his practice by adding a paralegal, and who better to entrust his cases to than his mother? Nancy’s experience, attention to detail, and genuine care and concern for our clients make her an integral member of our team.
To quote Nancy, “I have been blessed to work with attorneys of the highest caliber in the legal field. I am proud to now work for my son and witness firsthand his understanding and knowledge of the law. This opportunity brings a new and fresh perspective to my paralegal career.”
Nancy enjoys being active in her church community, exercising, and spending time with her young grandsons.
