    Since I have retained mr. Butler he has worked endlessly on my case. He got me out of jail when there was little to no hope of me getting out at all. He is still currently working on my case and has gone above and beyond my expectations. I have 100 prevent faith that my outcome will be everything he has told me to expect. He has been honest and not beaten around the bush with me at all. He has even done extra work when he did not have to. He currently represents me and my husband . I can't think of better hands to be in .

    Bill got a great deal for me. I was guilty but he prevented me from going to jail. He always answered my questions fast and in a clear way. I will always call Bill Butler if I run into an legal issue

    I do not believe he did a good job representing me at all and the outcome he set me to believe I would receive was far from what the judge sentenced.
    He was tardy returning my calls and emails. Secondly after I was taken into custody he never took any my calls or my spouse's. I feel he took my money and rode off into the sunset before we even entered the courtroom, not once have I felt he had my best interest at heart. I would not recommend even to my worst enemy especially considering often time someone's freedom is on the line.

    William M Butler Jr’s response: “The client was accused by the United States of stealing over 3 million dollars from his employer. After the sentencing hearing, the United States reduced the accusation to the Defendant having stolen $2,260,000.00. I argued, on my client’s behalf, that he only took $454,000.00, based on the client’s statement to me. Due to my argument both oral and written, and after a lengthy court hearing, the Court finally found that he stole $623,000.00. This was $2,577,000.00 less than he was accused of taking by the United States originally. At sentencing, the United States argued that the sentence should be between 78-97 months which was the “guideline sentence”. Instead, based on my presentation, the Court sentenced the client to 60 months. The Judge commented that he “used his employer’s bank account like it was his personal piggy bank”. I saved the client between 18-37 months. During the time period of this case, I emailed the client 27 times and always responded to his telephone calls, either personally or through my paralegal. I have never refused calls from the Defendant or his spouse. I never told client what sentence the Court would impose, only that I would work diligently to persuade the Judge, based on the facts, to sentence him to the least possible number of months, which I did.”

    Mr. Butler has done a wonderful job in representing our son. He is knowledgeable, confident and provides excellent advice while explaining next steps to our son. He has provided key information to us; we are confident in Mr. Butler. He is well respected by the judges and is respectful to other attorneys. He points out the facts of the case to the judge.

  • Excellent Recommendation For Mr Butler

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Laura

    Mr Butler is very good criminal defense lawyer and helped our case to the fullest extent of the law. He was on time and very helpful with telling us what we needed to have in order to proceed, along with possible outcomes and upstanding knowledge of what laws are and what they pertain too. He always responds with in 24 hours to calls and messages as well. We worked with him for over a year in criminal case for our family member and he was very helpful. He doesn't judge and didn't make us feel it was all about the money like some small town lawyers have in the past. He is very honest and up front about the consequences of breaking the law and what the court system can offer and what rights we had denied do to mishap and poor judgement of local authorities with the two cases we hired him to take on. He keeps up with the local laws and doesn't mind reminding the courts of what those laws states when rights have been violated on be half of his clients. If I ever need a lawyer in the future I will be consulting him first and for most for the job. I recommend him over some of the local small town favorites I have worked with in the past and have no regrets of hiring and consulting with him from the big city of Louisville KY. I promise you won't be disappointed in his work and commitment to your case.

    Mr. Butler was there for me whenever i needed him, and his incredible and extensive knowledge of the law, combined with a relaxed-yet-professional demeanor made me feel comfortable at all times. Even when he was busy, he made arrangements to make sure i was never alone at any stage of the legal process. Mr. Butler's services were worth every penny.

    Bill Butler has helped me out several times over the years. At the end of my cases, I was surprised that I got such good deals. Bill even prevented me from being charged in one case. All I had to do was follow his expert advice. I highly recommend Bill Butler.
