1. I am a trial lawyer.
Why is this important? This is important because the majority of cases never reach trial, rather there is a settlement offer. Your settlement offer will be better if the prosecution believes that I have the skill and determination to go to trial if they are not fair to you. In the event that the offer is not acceptable, I have tried many cases to verdict. I have the experience and resourcefulness to fight for your constitutional rights.
2. I have a proven record of success.
My Case Results speak for themselves. I am both a skilled negotiator and seasoned litigator, for more information please see my Curriculum Vitae, Continuing Legal Education, and the Curriculum Vitae, of Karen Bell, my paralegal. Ms. Bell has worked with me for 31 years, which is almost unheard of in the legal field.
3. I am client focused.
I limit the number of cases I take so that each client is treated as an individual, during what is, understandably, a stressful time. Watching out for your interests is what guides my work. Please see the Testimonials of former clients.
4. I have 33 years experience.
I am a highly experienced defender of persons charged with criminal offenses. All attorneys must graduate from law school and pass the bar exam to be able to practice. But, as in life, experience is often the best teacher. There are many things that can only be learned from experience.
5. I am a Life Member of the NACDL.
The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is a prestigious organization whose motto is “Liberty’s Last Champion.” In addition, I am a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, as are all lawyers who practice in Kentucky. In addition, I am a member of the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, AVVO, and am a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in the National Trial Lawyers Association.
6. I practice throughout Kentucky and the Nation.
I appear in all Kentucky State Counties and U.S. Federal District Courts. My office is in Louisville, the largest city in Kentucky but I grew up in a small Kentucky County. I speak your language and the language of the prosecutor.
7. I go the extra step for you when preparing for your case.
I am always thoroughly and completely prepared for both the factual issues and legal issues so that I can present a complete defense on your behalf.
8. I approach every case as if a life depended on it – because your case does.
