Any lawyer or Judge in Kentucky will likely tell you there is no substitute for the knowledge and experience that come from trying cases before a jury.
Leland has been practicing law in Kentucky for the past 14 years. He has handled nearly every type of criminal case in Kentucky and knows not only what it takes to defend you against current or potential charges but also what it takes to build a case from the ground up. By prosecuting thousands of cases from start to finish, Leland can offer sound legal advice and representation on any criminal charge or investigation that you or a member of your family face.
As the Director of Media Communications and Spokesperson for the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney, Leland built strong relationships with members of the media. Leland offers effective and knowledgeable representation and a unique skill set of being able to reach out to the media community if necessary.
In 2013, Leland was appointed to lead the newly formed Violent Crimes Unit in Jefferson County. By working with top members in law enforcement from the US Attorney's Office, FBI, ATF and LMPD, Leland developed many relationships and learned how cases are developed and potential targets are assessed.
In 2002, Leland began his legal career working for the Jefferson County Attorney, now Court of Appeals Judge, Irv Maze. Leland handled a large caseload consisting of serious felony arraignments and preliminary hearings, possession and trafficking of drugs, child support, traffic, no insurance, speeding and DUI cases, gun possession, warrant cases, domestic violence, paternity and juvenile court cases.
Leland serves a wide range of clientele, and every client relationship is valued greatly and treated with dignity and respect. Leland has offices in downtown Louisville and in the East End to better serve the demanding schedules of my clients. Leland will work hard to be your advocate and your voice to ensure your case receives the attention it deserves.
