Louisville Criminal Defense Attorney
A significant portion of my career has been focused on criminal law. The term “criminal defense attorney” means that I handle a range of cases. When you spend the majority of your time in court, you gain the respect of judges. More importantly, you get to know how they’re most likely to react to a criminal charge, motions and other issues related to successfully resolving a client’s case.
I practice in Louisville and several of the surrounding counties. I’ve gotten to know the judges and the prosecutors. That knowledge is important when you represent a client. It’ll be important to you, if I’m your lawyer.
Evidence, Evidence, Evidence
Regardless of whether the prosecution thinks you’re guilty, it only comes down to what they can prove. Much of the case against you depends on the evidence. This can range from physical evidence such as finger prints or video footage or testimonial evidence such as statements or recollections from witnesses.
It’s not uncommon for various types of evidence to be thrown out. The police and the prosecution have strict standards about what they are allowed to do and how they have to do it.
I work quickly to gather and review all available evidence in my client’s case. I begin putting the prosecution on notice that we’re not playing games. If there’s an opening to block evidence from being admitted, I focus on it. Remember, it’s not a question of your guilt or innocence. It’s a question of what they can prove in court. Just like a wooden stool, if I can remove one of the legs, the case against you will begin to fall apart.
Types of Criminal Cases
Some of the most common criminal defense cases I encounter include:
- DUI charges
- Drug charges
- Theft, Robbery and Burglary charges
- Assault and Battery
- Probation Violations
- Once your case has been decided, I can also help you to petition for an expungement of certain charges, based on Kentucky’s 2016 expungement laws.
My rates are charged either as a flat fee or on an hourly basis. It depends on the type of case and how you’d like to resolve it. I accept cash and credit card payments.
