Our Team


The legal team at Wilt & Thompson, PLLC, leverages the background that our attorneys and their staff have in defending doctors and insurers to benefit plaintiffs in medical malpractice and personal injury lawsuits.

Ronald M. Wilt, who earned his law degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1992, provided medical malpractice defense services to clients for nearly 15 years before shifting the focus of his practice to plaintiff representation. Prior to launching our firm, he was a partner with Crandall, Pera & Wilt. He has been admitted to practice law in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia.

Kathleen Thompson (formerly Coffey) is a passionate trial attorney who focuses her practice on helping the victims of medical negligence/malpractice, nursing home abuse, and other personal injuries.  She understands the intricacies of the law as well as the emotional and real-world impact these injuries have on the lives of her clients and their families. Kathleen thrives in this field because she is detail-oriented, empathetic, practical, and committed to her work and her clients.
