  • Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University – 1986

I have been practicing law through Central Kentucky for more than twenty years. I have extensive experience in the fields of:

  • DUI Defense

  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Personal Injury

I began practicing law for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, where I gained valuable experience handling workers compensation cases which allowed me to open my practice in 1990 in Georgetown, Kentucky. Since then I have represented many Kentuckians in their search for justice and appropriate compensation for their injuries.

My years of experience is extremely important in advising my clients on how to proceed in any criminal case.
