An Attorney who looks out for his Clients best interest!
We used Jack during our business formation and he really showed his years of experience and expertise in this area. Jack brought up some very valid points and really had my partners and I going back to the drawing board to ensure we were thinking through every angle. I highly recommend Jack and or the rest of the attorneys at Gatlin Voelker. World class.

Incredible Small Business Attorney
I formed a partnership earlier this year and Jack advised on how to properly set up our LLC to protect ourselves from a variety of situations we brought up to him. He was very thorough, listened to our needs, offered great advice, and is someone we are looking to grow with as our business grows. If you are a small business owner, Jack is an incredibly valuable resource and comes highly recommended. Don't wait until you need a lawyer for your business, work with on from day one!

Great Lawyer
In July, 2017, I hired Jack Gatlin as my attorney in a DUI case in Grant County, Ky. Jack's fee was very reasonable. His expertise and attention to the details of my case was excellent! The end result was a dismissal of the DUI. Looking for an attorney devoted to his client's legal issues? Jack Gatlin is the attorney you need...make no mistake about it! I am very happy with the outcome of my legal issue. He gets 20 stars in my book!
