What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Impossible. Every case is different, but certain cases have certain common threads; I do not charge clients differently for the same service.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I will meet with a client in person, and we will sit down and discuss their options if they choose to hire me.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from University of Louisville
Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law
Fourth Year Attorney -- Practice in all areas imaginable.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was always told I am good at arguing and winning arguments. So I decided to make money doing so.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I won a case for a Military Captain (16 years in) who was looking down the barrel at it. Officer made mistakes, and I saved his career, life, and family by getting the DUI dismissed (the military was going to discharge him with NO pension and NO benefits); basically, 16 years thrown into the trashcan. I am the most proud of that case. I also saved a CDL Driver who was looking at a lifetime CDL suspension. He now works in Washington State peacefully and stays the HECK out of Kentucky. He told me he drives around the state any time he gets near it!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Research. Research. Research. Know who you are going to meet BEFORE you meet them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1) Can the lawyer try a case? 2) Have they tried cases before? 3) Do they have at least ONE victory (even if the one win is balanced by 20 losses; that means they are not afraid of a fight)?
If the answer to question one, or two, or, God forbid, both, is "no" (question number 3 is irrelevant) .... RUUUUUUNNNN!!!!!!!!!
