The Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky (BIAK) board has selected Tom Coffey as its next president-elect. Coffey has served on the board since 2012 and previously served as the policy analyst for the Brain Injury Association of America.
“Brain injury has rightly been described as a silent epidemic that plagues our communities. The Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky aims to help people and families throughout our state who are far too often overlooked and neglected,” said Coffey. “It is an honor and a privilege to be asked to play a leadership role in such a vital organization.”
BIAK serves those affected by brain injury through advocacy, education, prevention, service and support. The organization links survivors of brain injury and their families to support from others with similar experiences. BIAK also provides survivors and their families with education and information about living and coping with brain injury, assists them in locating resources for financial assistance and connects them with sources of emotional support.
Coffey’s practice focuses on litigation, drawing upon his employment background as a Jefferson County Assistant Commonwealth Attorney and an Assistant District Attorney for Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He has extensive jury trial, bench trial, and appellate and administrative court experience, and has logged numerous appearances in front of every circuit court judge in Jefferson County. In addition to his litigation experience, he has worked for two U.S. senators.
