I grew up in Northern Kentucky and I have been practicing law here for 6 years. I fight for my clients accused of felonies, misdemeanors, DUI, juvenile offenses, probation or parole violations, and contempt of court in family court. As a foster and adoptive parent, I am passionate about representing clients in Kentucky adoption cases and doing everything I can to expedite the proceedings.
