Practice Areas

 As your attorney I will not try to confuse you with legal jargon. I relate to my clients and personally work with them on a one-on-one basis. As a former blue-collar worker, I know what hard work is.  Below, please find the areas of law I practice.


DUI / Traffic

Kentucky and Southern Indiana DUI Attorney

As part of my criminal and traffic practice I represent clients who have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI). This can be the result of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. If you tested over the “legal limit,” you can still win your DUI case. There are many defenses available to clients who are alleged to have a test result over the legal limit. Defending a DUI case involves a mixture of investigation, development of a defense against an opinion of the arresting officer, and defense against a blood alcohol test or refusal.

The results of the breathalyzer test can impact your case. Many DUI cases hinge on the results of the breathalyzer, but there are ways to defend your rights against this evidence.

As your Kentucky and Southern Indiana DUI Attorney I will defend your rights and negotiate with the prosecutor to give you the best outcome for your needs.

Personal Injury

Kentucky and Southern Indiana Personal Injury Attorney

I do not earn any money from your injury unless I can help settle your claim or win at trial. I also advance all of the costs and expenses involved in the investigation and proof of your personal injury or wrongful death claims, and we only recover our expenses if I am successful on your behalf.

A motor vehicle accident can change a person’s life forever and can effect every aspect of your daily life. I am here to help assist you through this difficult time and put you on a trajectory back to normalcy. Although you might never get back what you lost in an accident, I will do everything I can to put the law on your side and get the most from the insurance companies.

As your personal injury attorney I work for you. It is my duty to keep you informed of the status of your claim. I will negotiate your claim with the insurance company, investigate your claim, guide you with medical assistance, and represent you in trial if need be. I will help get you the money you deserve for someone else’s negligence. Call me if you have been hurt in a car, truck, pedestrian or motorcycle accident. I help injured clients in Kentucky and Indiana.



Louisville Bankruptcy Attorney

Are you being harassed by collection firms for credit card debt or paying medical bills? If so you may be a candidate for filing Bankruptcy. I say candidate because Bankruptcy may not always be the best avenue to get debt relief. Let me be your Louisville Bankruptcy attorney and together we will review your situation to determine the best resolution to your problems.

There are different types of bankruptcy available to individual consumers. Most individuals file either a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13. The relief available under these chapters is very different, and the best option for you will depend on your particular circumstances and goals. A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will discharge most unsecured debt including medical bills and credit card debt. A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy restructures the debt and allows for a payment plan up to 60 months.

Credit Counseling

In order to file a bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, you must first complete a credit counseling course through an agency authorized to provide counseling on the Western District of Kentucky.

Getting divorced is one of the most stressful events a person can experience. When I represent you through your domestic relations proceedings I am attentive to both the financial and emotional aspects of the process.

Medical Malpractice

Louisville and Southern Indiana Medical Malpractice Attorney

Most medical malpractice claims involve one of two kinds of mistakes on the part of a doctor, nurse or hospital: negligent failure to diagnose a medical condition correctly, or negligent treatment. Some cases involve both kinds of mistakes by several medical professionals and the hospital.

Patients may also agree to undergo a dangerous procedure when they have not been properly informed about the consequences of that procedure. This lack of informed consent may cause patients to be exposed to dangers they would have avoided if they were properly informed about the procedure.

Call me If you believe that you have been injured due to the fault of a medical professional. I will carefully review your case and help guide you to a speedy recovery.


Social Security Disability

It is difficult to obtain Social Security Disability benefits without the help of an attorney. The government will make you “jump a number of hurdles” to get the benefits from your disability.
