The U.S. Senate has confirmed Russell Coleman to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky; he was nominated by President Trump for the position in late June.

Coleman is an attorney with the law firm of Frost Brown Todd, LLC in Louisville, where he focuses on internal investigations, white-collar criminal matters, and government relations. The Louisville lawyer also serves as an Assistant Commonwealths Attorney for Kentucky’s 12th Judicial Circuit.

“I congratulate Russell Coleman on his confirmation as the United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky,” U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement. “His previous experiences in law enforcement have prepared him for this new role, and our communities will benefit from his leadership. I am grateful that he is willing to serve the Commonwealth and the country once again. Russell is a talented public servant, and I know that he will make us proud.”

Before returning to Kentucky in late 2015, Coleman served as legal counsel to McConnell from 2010 to 2015. Prior to his time with McConnell, Coleman served as a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2004 to 2010. Coleman is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and the University Of Kentucky College Of Law.
