He also got a firsthand informal education about what can happen to a working person who is injured on the job, when he hurt his back while at UPS. That experience inspired him to continue his education and become an attorney. In addition to having his own practice, Mr. Kohler is Of Counsel with the law firms of Thomas W.

Mr. Kohler also donates his time as a legal professional, serving as a volunteer panel attorney for Legal Assistance of Washington County and Union Plus Legal Services.
