I am truly passionate about being a lawyer.  I enjoy and value the trust   that comes with the responsibility our clients give me as their lawyer. This passion allows me to fight hard in the courtroom as my clients advocate to ensure their rights are protected.

Regarding my background, I am originally from Atlanta, I have lived in Louisville for the last 25 years, of which the last 15 years I have been a sucessful trial attorney. Back in 2008, I was voted by the LBA as the "Frank Haddad Young Lawyer of the Year."  Since then, I have won several Walker Advocacy awards for trial success and recently was selected as 2017 Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys in the united States.   Additionally, I also take pride in having a great work ethic and valuing my clients.  I practice in family and criminal court and I am familiar with procedures in both courtrooms.  It is invaluable to have an attorney that understand how to handle cases in both courtrooms.

Before law school, I did not know very many attorneys and I do not come from a family of attorneys.  I believe I can relate to all of my clients on a personal level since I have a very diverse background.  At the Tibbs Law Office, our goal is to be very accessible and focus on client service.  As the attorney, I am involved on every case that is in the office.

Thank you!
Mr. Tibbs and his team, specially Laura Lane are outstanding and some of the best in the field of family law based on my experience. I had gone through a divorce case that lasted 4 years, and cost me 4 attorneys. Mr. Tibbs, not only fixed the wrong motions the previous lawyers had filed on my behalf, but won my case. I was stuck in a hole of a custody battle for years because I had moved out of the State of KY for work. I had almost lost hope, but Mr. Tibbs and Laura were very encouraging, and very personal with me. I did not feel like I had a lawyer, but rather someone who cared about my family, and my kids. They even went above and beyond on helping me with my fees, and sometimes charging me a percentage of the fees due to my financial situation. Laura always responded to my “constant and annoying” text messages, and phone calls. She was very professional, and pushed relentlessly for the success of my case. Personally, I feel like I should have hired them from the beginning, and not had went through the hell of hiring greedy, money oriented lawyers. They could have saved me many restless nights, and grey hair. I recommend Mr. Tibbs any time of the day, and cannot thank him enough. Mr. Tibbs and Laura’s genuine warmth and kindness make it near impossible not to become their friend. Thank you!

Great Lawyer to have on your side
Mr. Tibbs was very helpful and proactive throughout my case. I have two children and was very concerned for how this would affect them. Divorce has to be the hardest thing I've been through and he made it a lot easier. Mrs. Lane went out of her way to comfort me on a few occasions when I would call with a thousand questions and I truly appreciate that. They are an amazing team, I'm very glad I chose to represent me.

Pursued dismissal of case
Recognized immediately that allegations and document should not be allowed by The Court. He was spot on and judge agreed with him without me having to “defend” myself. Personable, caring, intelligent, and fair. Krisna Tibbs was wonderful.

I hired Krsna Tibbs’s to represent me with a pretty messy divorce. I was worried about my precept with the court and losing everything! He was able to defend me in a way that ensure I was seen positively and treating fairly by the family court system. He kept a calm and empathetic demeanor while offering sound legal support. I am very satisfied with his representation and counsel. I would hire Mr. Tibbs again without any reservation.

AMAZING!!!!!
I hired Mr. Tibbs for family court. I've had him for about two years now and I have nothing but great things to say about. He ALWAYS came through when needed. He actually cares about his clients. He even allowed me to do a payment plan at one point which I was extremely grateful ful for. He never missed a court date and was always on time. My case wasn't easy but My court case is now over thanks to him and his great, dedicated and constant work. He always has a amazing paralegal whom works for him and helps you make sure you understand what's going on. I highly recommend Mr.Tibbs. If I ever am in need of a lawyer in the future he will definitely be my number one.

Great guy and has excellent knowledge of law!!!
Mr. Tibbs helped my sister regain her way of life by helping her with a case outside of Jefferson Country. Thanks to his knowledge of law she is now living her life with a full time job and daughter in college. I recommend anyone who is looking for a great attorney give him a call.

Krsna Tibbs!
Mr. Tibbs is an honest, respectful and steady person. He will not mislead you or steer you in the wrong direction. He is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and If ever in a pinch I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Frankly I’m not sure anyone else who deals with him in court would either. Everyone who witnessed him represent me told me how great of an attorney I had. I watch him calmly say few things while the opposition fumbled over their words. I can assure you Mr. Tibbs will be worth every penny you spend on him. If There was absolutely anything I had to nitpick at it would be that he can be a bit hard to get ahold of at times but that goes for any attorney. (They are in court a lot) his staff made sure to answer any questions they could and Mr Tibbs was willing to set up times to meet in an appointment style discussion to further discuss details of my case that needed further explanation.

Mr Tibbs and his staff did an excellent job of proving that I acted in self defense. He also proved the defendant was lying.
