Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    25%
    A charge does not have to mean a conviction. I will fight to get your charges dismissed or amended, ensure your constitutional rights are protected, and make certain the criminal justice system treats you fairly. Nick Mudd has tried dozens of FELONY LEVEL jury trials in his career. He is most well known and famous for his record setting "perfect streak" Winning Five (5) MURDER TRIALS In A Row In Four (4) Months beginning January 2016.

  2. Medical malpractice
    25%
    Medical Malpractice is my other practice Area. I recently got the largest retained object verdict in the history of Kentucky when I convinced a jury to award my client $10.5 MILLION DOLLARS back in December of 2019, after a two week Jury Trial.

  3. DUI and DWI
    15%
    Add alcohol to any situation, and often there is legal trouble. Whether it's a charge of public intoxication, or violating the open container laws, no one wants an alcohol charge on their record. All of us have been in the position where we had a few drinks, drove home, and woke up the next morning saying to ourselves: “I really shouldn’t have drove home last night.” People make mistakes. And a DUI can ruin your career, your business, or your education. That’s why I am here to help you.

  4. Federal crime
    15%
    Federal criminal cases are often very complex and highly sophisticated. You need someone on your side who has defended those cases...and won. Results matter. Period. I have the results to back up the talk. Whether you are charged with a white collar crime, drug trafficking, fraud, environmental crime, or other federal offense, please give me a call to make sure you get the best possible result for your case, period.

  5. Speeding and traffic ticket
    10%

  6. White collar crime
    10%
    Fraud cases often involve good people who get lured in by the promise to catch up on their bills, help out family members, or even support a hidden addiction. The first 2 ½ years of Nick’s criminal prosecution was spent prosecuting fraud cases as a member of the Economic Crimes Unit. As an experienced prosecutor in the field, he has the knowledge to successfully defend fraud cases. He is one of only a handful attorney’s to have actually gone to trial on a fraud case...and win.

I am Former top-level prosecutor with several years of experience handling some of the community's largest cases. I have extensive experience with cases involving Trafficking and Possession of Drugs, DUIs, Federal Drug Trafficking and White Collar Federal Crimes, Murder, Assault 1/2/3, Possession of guns by a felon, Marijuana Possession, Domestic Violence/Assault 4, DVO/EPO Hearings, Juvenile Law, Theft Related Crimes, and representing Father's seeking custody of their children. I am licensed to practice in all District, Circuit, and Federal Courts of Kentucky, and in the Federal Southern District of Indiana. I'm well known by the bar to be a respectful but highly aggressive lawyer, not afraid to take a case to trial to demand my clients' innocence. I have a great relationship with all of the judges, police officers, & prosecutors, which greatly benefits me often getting very good outcomes for my clients.

Traffic Violation
Mr. Mudd handled my traffic violations and because of him the process ran smoother than I could have ever imagined. From the time I entered the court room I was in and out in under thirty minutes due to Mr. Mudd's swiftness and commitment to making me feel valued as a client. I plan on reaching out to Mr. Mudd in regard to any legal matter, no matter how big or how small from here on out.

Traffic violation / Accident
Mr. Mudd handled my grandson's traffic/accident violation case between a court date in Nov 2021 and a court date in Dec 2021. Mr. Mudd did an outstanding job with getting my grandson's case dismissed with knowledge it does involve my grandson needing to pass a Life Skills course among other restrictions to follow. We do highly recommend Mr. Nick Mudd. It was an honor to meet him and he well deserves 5 stars.

Kayla Rodgers - Traffic violation/Ticket
Nick was absolutely amazing, this was my first time needing an attorney and I was absolutely petrified. But Nick calmed my nerves and handled absolutely everything, he was easy to talk to and very prominent in his responses to me. I was very fortunate that someone had referred me to Nick!

Ryan Rice vs Oldham County
Was charged with trafficking marijuana over an ounce and possession of unregistered firearm , facing a felony conviction. I assumed the worst that I would be locked up for good untill my girls dad told me he had a mutual friend with a really attorney by the name of Nick Mudd. I was happy to hear that he was ready to fight my case for a reasonable price. After months of fighting the case I’m able to walk free with no charges and facing a misdemeanor along with a diversion plea of 24 months . Thank you Nick Mudd ! Best attorney in the city of Louisville!

The best in town!!!!
I was referred to Nick Mudd by several family friends. Heard of how he’s helped them in some pretty messed up situations. Reached out to him and he responded back right away. He’s extremely knowledgeable, honest, quick and easy to talk to. He always kept me updated & responded to all my calls and messages within seconds. If I ever need a lawyer again, (praying I don’t) Nick Mudd will be the only lawyer I will call and I will refer him to anybody that may need his help.

The truth about Nick Mudd
I WAS REFERRED TO NICK FROM A GOOD FRIEND. THIS FRIEND HELPED ME AND MY FAMILY THAT DAY. THROUGH A LENGTHY PROCESS AND GREAT COUNCIL IM ABLE TO TYPE THIS REVIEW FROM MY HOME. I FACED DOUBLE DIGIT FELONIES ON TOP OF BEING A SIX TIME CONVICTED FELON. I WAS COUGHT RED HANDED, NO DENYING GUILT TO A COUPLE CHARGES. FACING TEN FLAT WITH NO WAY OF BEATING A CHARGE I KNEW A PD WAS NOT BEST OPTION. A SURE PRISON SENTENCE WAS MY DESTINY. MR.MUDD TOOK MY CASE AS A FAVOR FOR A MUTUAL FRIEND. HE WAS HONEST FROM THE START, HE DOUBTED ME AT FIRST. HE HIMSELF DIDNT THINK I COULD PULL MY WEIGHT AND DO THE NECCESARY STEPS REQUIRED TO AVOID SENTENCEING. HE SOON WITNESSED MY SINCERITY AND BEGAN TO BELIEVE IN ME. I STARTED BELIEVING IN MYSELF ASWELL. I TRUSTED MR.MUDD AND DIDN'T WANT TO LET HIM DOWN, NOR MY FAMILY. I STARTED TO BELIEVE IN MY CHANCES OF WALKING OUT OF THE COURT ROOM FROM THIS CASE. I DID WITH NICK'S RECOMENDATION. NOT ONLY DID I RESPECT MR.MUDD THE ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM, PROSECUTORS, JUDGES AND COLLEAGUES DO ALSO. HE VOUCHED FOR ME AND STUCK HIS NECK OUT FOR ME. HE USED HIS GOOD NAME AND DEFENDED MY CHARACTER. ON PAPER IM JUST CRIMINAL ONCE AGAIN IN TROUBLE JAMMING UP THE COURTS AND TAX DOLLARS. IN PERSON IM A GOOD MAN WHO BATTLES ADDICTION AND THE POOR DECISION MAKING THAT GOES WITH IT. NICK SAW A GOOD MAN AND HELPED THE PROSECUTER AND THE JUDGE SEE PAST THE BLACK AND WHITE AND PORTRAY ME AS A HUMAN BIENG. THATS A HARD THING TO DO WITH MY PAST AND NICK LOVES A CHALLENGE. HE US A WINNER AND HE HAS SEEN MANY CASES. HE DOSENT PRE JUDGE OR EVEN CARE THE CHARGE I FEEL. HE CARES FOR THE CLIENT AND THE CLIENTS FREEDOM AND FUTURE. I RECOMMEND NICK MUDD AND RATE HIM IN THE TOP 3 TRIAL LAWYERS IN THE CITY. SINCERELY, MICHAEL O. DECEMBER 2020

Great attorney
I have somewhat of a rough past. I had used many attorneys before my most recent case. Nick was by far the best attorney I have ever used. He communicated with me every step of the way. He made the situation so easy and was always there for me. He was able to get my case dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel.
