Auto Accidents

In my past career, I represented automobile manufacturers and insurance companies. Now, as a representative of individuals injured in car or trucking accidents, I use my experience to ensure your claims against insurance companies are successful.

When you’re in an accident, you don’t want the case to drag on for a long time. You want the money you’re entitled to as soon as possible so you can begin recovering from the traumatic experience. Because I take on fewer overall cases than other attorneys, I have more time to focus on your case individually and resolve it in a timely fashion.

The extra time I can put into your personal case means that I often have the chance to maximize your settlement amount. After an automobile accident, you’re entitled to a larger sum of money than many insurance companies want you to believe, and I fight for your right to an appropriate sum.

Medical Malpractice

For the first several years of my law career I represented hospitals, physicians, and medical insurance companies. I now use this experience to help patients and their families successfully make claims and maximize their recovery against hospitals, physicians, and insurance companies. Also, because I handle only a small number of medical negligence cases at any given time, each client gets my personal and prompt attention to his or her case.

I handle medical malpractice cases on behalf of patients against hospitals, physicians, and insurance companies. I take on cases that involve wrongful death, birth injuries, brain injuries, nursing errors, medication errors, misdiagnosis/failure to diagnose, surgical error, injuries from falls, and any other type of medical malpractice issue that a client might bring to me.

Criminal Defense

Since 2007, I have helped individuals who have been charged with crimes get their cases resolved. When you call me, I will look up your case online and I provide a free consultation. During the consultation, I can give specifics about your case, including my expectations for the outcome. Of course, my goal is always to get your case dismissed so that it is not on your record. I charge a one-time representation fee, which varies depending on the nature of your case. You will not have to pay extra fees beyond this, regardless of how many times we must go to court together to get your case dismissed or resolved. I work on all types of traffic offenses, misdemeanors, and felonies.

Business Law

I represent businesses of all types and sizes that operate in the Louisville, Kentucky area. Many businesses do not have an attorney on staff, and when they need one, they find that the larger firms charge an exorbitant hourly rate. With my experience, I can offer big firm expertise at a more reasonable rate for business and commercial matters.  Our firm represents small businesses as well as international corporations based in Louisville, Kentucky.

I handle a variety of business cases including business formation, incorporation, creating limited liability companies (LLC), drafting and reviewing contracts, creating business and legal forms, litigation, employment matters, and consultation.
