Biography

I have enjoyed the privilege of being a Legal Expert offering Legal Analysis for local news media on high profile cases. I have earned that reputation through many years of legal experience and opportunities as a lawyer in Kentucky. My Criminal Law and Family Law clients know I am a trusted advocate and a powerful voice on their case and my reviews on Google and other websites show their appreciation for my hard work and the positive results. As the former head of the Violent Crimes Unit for the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney, I know what the other side is planning on your case. I use my 20 years of experience in the Court System and the relationships I have made with current Judges and help my clients get the best possible outcome on their Criminal Law or Family Law cases. Many attorneys will advertise they have "experience" or have catchy slogans but I have as much relevant current courtroom experience on both sides of the table as any defense attorney in the area. With my representation you deal directly with me and not with an associate or paralegal. Please see my 5.0 rating based on over 60 reviews on Google and my perfect ratings on Avvo, Justia and Thumbtack based on my reviews from clients and colleagues.

Legal Answers
Q. Can I set up a payment plan after my court date?
A: The court will generally give you a few months to pay fines and costs. You can make partial payments if you want. If you’re in a really big bind you can ask the judge for even more time to pay your fines and costs
Q. My girlfriend is currently facing a murder charge as well as possession of a firearm by a felon.
A: 1. Yes 2. I am not sure what that means 3. Not sure what that means 4. Only if they had shot a gun within the last few house. They could be tested for gunshot residue. 5. Yes 6. Less likely but still possible, Murder cases tend to have tons of evidence - pictures, body cam, bullets, witnesses etc.
Q. From Tennessee and ticket for going 92 in 70. Also improper left lane use and following too closely. Hire attorney?
A: It depends what county you’re in but hiring attorney for any speeding ticket over 20 mph over is typically worth it because you can get a reduced charged or possibly a County Attorney or state traffic school diversion program. Having a local attorney is much easier than trying to do it yourself from another state.
