About Me

Personal injury, family law and criminal defense trial attorney licensed in Kentucky and Ohio. My clients trust me to advocate for them with integrity and dedication.  I gladly accept this responsibility and have built my practice one satisfied client at a time.  

I am a trial attorney.  There are very few lawyers that consistently try as many cases as me.  This trial experience has provided me with tools most lawyers simply don't have.  Ever case has its own story that must be told.  It doesn't matter if it is helping an injured client recover compensation for their pain and suffering or defending some one accused of a crime, I never give up.  

If you want an attorney that will tell you the truth, provide you with options, and help accomplish your goals, call me.  I frequently handle the following types of cases: 

Civil Litigation: Serious Injury | Automobile Accidents | Motorcycle Accidents | Insurance Bad Faith | Insurance Claims | 

Family Law:  Divorce  | Disolution  | Custody | Neglect & Abuse

Criminal Defense: Misdemeanor | Felony | DUI | Child Abuse

    Joseph is an excellent attorney and personal friend. He thoroughly researches all of his cases and makes every effort to communicate with his clients and to achieve the best possible outcome. Not only do his clients enjoy working with him, but judges and attorneys in the community have expressed admiration of Joseph's work. I highly recommend Joseph for any civil litigation, domestic relations, and criminal cases.
