Brent is a very thorough and competent professional attorney. He was accesible during the entire process and had my best interest in mind. I would strongly recommend him and have referred him to several friends.

Mr. Cox has a real passion and talent with what he does. I think that makes a real difference in the kind of services you receive as opposed to dealing with someone that's simply putting time in for a paycheck. He's always been happy to provide legal council for me and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking the kind of services he renders.
Posted by Connie upon behalf of Robert
Brent Cox is an excellent attorney. He was a Public Defender for my son who was 19-years-old at the time, Yes a P.D.
Public Defenders in most cases lack defending the client figure they get paid one way or the other its not their life seeking jail or prison time why bother so much about the case they have.
He was given this case even though from his office to location of the court hearing was over an hour away.
Brent wasnt given the case until day of pretrial. He had a lot of elements against this attorney throughout the my sons case.
He keeps in contact with you through different methods and keeps in contact with you e-mail, text, face to face, phone call.
When you ask a question he will get back with you usually the same day.
He investigates your case without dropping the ball.
Isn't afraid to rebutting the DA and keeping up with task during your case.
My son was placed in jail for Murder within two weeks Brent had my son out of jail with an ankle moniter. He came home which was over an hour from Brent's office, which he would meet us if needed to at a location we agreed upon.
The DA was brutal and was head strong without dropping charges nor turning over evidence in my sons case. Brent went over, beyond, and above to fight back.
The charges was dropped to conspiracy of murder Brent wouldn't have that even without any evidence from the DA
Brent continued to push with only evidence he had.
My sons case went to Grand Jury they stated there wasn't enough evidence for conviction.
DA wanted my son to receive some type of charge. Considering my son didnt report it to the authorities.
Brent argued back and forth with the DA.
I feel if my son wouldn't have accepted the plea charge he wouldnt have received 2nd degree contributing to a minor.
He accepted the charge bc me being on disabilty I couldn't afford the ankle monitor much longer, and fear of getting behind on his child support.
Even Brent stated he couldve beat the charge but out of fear my son accepted the last of the three plea bargains.
Received 2 years probation, with prejudice, low defender status with his parole officer.
Months after his indictment I e-mailed Brent with a question without hesitation he answered. I figured he forget who his client was considering he does have other clients.
Brent to me saved my sons life and a mothers heart. I thank God every day that Brent was defending my son and not some slacking Public Defending given.
If I could Thank him every day I would, but he is a busy man defending his clients.

I have worked with Mr. Cox through the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have also received excellent legal advice from him myself. Brent is thoroughly knowledgeable about the law, also knows the ins and outs of the local courts, and is second to none in zealously representing and caring about his clients and their legal rights. I frequently refer people to him, and confidently endorse him. If you are in need of a great attorney, look no further.
