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.

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.

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

Excellent lawyer
I hired him to take care of a warrant for me and he did an amazing job. If I didn’t talk to him my questions was always answered by his paralegal Megan. I appreciate everything this firm has done for me.

A Father First...
To say that this man cares is an understatement. On a weekend when Mr.Tibbs was enjoying time with his family, in the middle of him remodeling he returned a strangers message to his Facebook messenger of all places. When he called me I’m sure I shocked him with the sensitivity of my case involving my children( my son in particular). For the rest of that day (Saturday) Mr.Tibbs not only reassured me that he would be able to help with my case, even as he drove with his 5 year old daughter in the car at one point. As a father he listened to me and advised me with excellent knowledge of the law on what we will do for the case to save my son. I felt so relieved that no matter what he had going he listend and helped us out. I highly recommend Mr.Tibbs.

He really should be a top choice
It may not be the legal experience witnessed through block buster cinema or television however this mans style yields results. Faced with charged (falsely) that would usually have me jailed for years awaiting trial Tibbs had me home with my family within 2 months and working on house arrest while i waited trial 6 months after. He was consistent and never made me feel as if the entire system was working in my disfavor. His prices were fair and worth it. In the end he took felonious charges and brought a result that would end with possibilities for full expungement. No the case wasn’t a mistrial or a dismissal but that harkens back to the fact the real court system isn’t anything like what is on tv. Over all he has been a great lawyer for me as he could be for you should you decide to choose.

Tibbs is On point.
I had an outstanding warrant from 12 yrs back. I live five states away. He got my case dismissed at a fair price. Price was lower then the fine was gonna be for sure. Good job Tibbs. Thank you for your help.

Family Court Case
I hired Mr. Tibbs and his team to help me be reunited with my kids he took very good care of my case and successfully won in my favorite. Even with me being the non custodial parent I still was awarded visitation I couldn't have done it without his help.

Best Ever
I want to personally thank you Mr. Tibbs and Laura both. You both have worked so hard for me and my family that I will never be able to thank you enough. I saw a review that you all did not return phone calls. That was never the case for me and I never had any trouble reaching you guys. You both gave me hope after my last attorney left me high and dry after I spent thousands of dollars. Thank you again. I would recommend your office to anyone that I know.

Terrific job
I have one of the more difficult family / domestic cases around involving the wellbeing of my child, abandonment, custody. Mr Tibbs and Ms. Lane worked around the clock to come up with a successful plan for me and my son. They were sharp, informative and accessible i cannot think them enough for what they achieved!
