Best attorney I've ever worked with!
Not only did Paul completely get all my charges thrown out. He drove around for a complete day to get me out of jail. He went above and beyond for me because he believed in the case he wasn't in it just for the money. I highly recommend hiring him if anybody ever needs him.

The right attorney for any situation
I have hired Paul a couple times for help and everytime he came through for me. He's a man of his word and got me the outcome I needed both times like he said he would. If you are ever in need of legal representation, Paul Dickman is the man to call hands down.

BEST LAWYER IN KY
If you get charged with a felony in ky you need Paul Dickman on your side. He is worth every penny he charges. He will do everything he tells you he will. He's always available to talk or text which most lawyers won't give u the time of day. Don't make a mistake and not choose Paul. I first hired another attorney for less money. I fired him after the first court date. I then called Paul and he and his team got my charges reduced to a misdemeanor.

Great attorney
Very pleased with the two cases he represented me on. One being a burglary 1st which he got down it to a burglary 3rd on probation. The other being a probation violation from the new charge I got which got ran concurrent with the probation from the new charge. I went from facing ten plus years to five years on probation. Also I could always get ahold of him anytime of day and on weekends.

My Experience
Well I would have to give it to Paul. He did get me the best deal possible. He is very confident in his ability’s and well spoken. Only con I could give him was that he didn’t reach out to me. I always had to initiate conversations. But other than that. Always converted law/lawyer talk to English. Also always a nice guy in person and never lied me. Would highly recommend Mr. Paul Dickman for any criminal case.

Lawyer DUI
Police pulled me over because of someone behind me reported me driving drunk. I refused a blood test and took a breathalyzer. Paul used what they had and got me a careless driving and maybe could of gotten less but I took the careless driving. He worked with me on payments that I all made and answered all questions I had.

Best lawyer in nky
Paul was very calm, cool, and collected throughout my whole case. Collecting all the evidence in the case and using it to my advantage by making sure the judge understood that I was the the passenger in the car and that the Marijuana in the car was not on my person as well as none of the drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

Paul is the best attorney out there. He is very thorough and will fight for you to get the best outcome possible for whatever your case may be. He’s reliable, honest, and I cannot thank him enough for all of his diligent work and dedication to my case. He’s expensive but he’s worth every penny!!

Phenomenal
I needed an attorney for criminal defense after facing some heavy charges, I was severely overwhelmed and had no idea where to even start. After some searching I found Paul Dickman and am so very fortunate that I did. He took my case, fought long and hard for me and got the severe charges dismissed! I am completely shocked and in awe of his talent, professionalism and care. I simply can not praise him enough. If you are in need of an attorney who cares will fight tooth and nail for you with exceptional outcomes, Paul is it!

Superior Lawyer Leadership
This is a one of a kind lawyer that will go above and beyond any other in his field of work. This gentleman will make sure he covers more than just all the court bases with his clients he has as he genuinely cares for those that hire him for their protection. He fights for what is just and fair for all his clients as those on the other side of the table just want to make a name for their own selves. He understands life happens and mistakes can be made but life doesn’t stop which means he gets the fair deal or better for us. This gentleman I hired has kept the evil out of my life and has granted me a second chance to prove my society character is better than what got me in his office in the first place. He didn’t judge me, he just wanted my honesty and in return he gave me the exact same thing. I can’t thank this man enough for looking after my case as he made no promises just a deal that allowed me to have my life those on the other side of the table wanted to take away from me in an unjust manner! Seriously from the bottom of my Heart Thank You Paul!

Mr. Paul Dickman Saved My Life
My wife and I had come to terms with the probability that I was going to be found guilty for something I did NOT do. However, Paul was tenacious and never gave up while keeping our stress as low as possible. Paul methodically reviewed all of the evidence and made a series of recommendations while leaving the decision up to me and always communicating and always keeping me in the loop. His recommendations were of course always correct! :) Then yesterday after almost two years Paul was able to get my case dismissed without even going to trial. This is the guy (and his team) that you want on your side when you think all could be lost....

Great attorney! No felony!
First of all Paul, thank you so much for helping us out in our not simple situation! We were terrified and scared because of what we were facing. Because of what happened to our daughter, her life could be completely ruined, shattered to pieces if we didn’t have Paul. We tried to find an attorney, but didn’t feel comfortable with any of them until we came across Paul’s name. Immediately he made us feel hopeful, calmed us down and started working on the case right away. What I love about Paul is that you can get hold of him any time and I mean it. Second, he is “brutally “ honest and We love it. No false hopes, no lies, just a deep trust between attorney and the client. He is not the one that would tell you what you want to hear, but he will tell you what you have to do to get out of trouble and you better listen to him. We did and never regretted. He is very professional and very respected among legislators and fellow attorneys. In addition, he is very personable, easy going and genuinely cares about his clients and what’s happening in their lives. Even now, after everything is done and over with we still keep in touch. I would recommend Paul as a great attorney for any case, even the most complicated, like our was. Because of Paul our daughter got a second chance in life and doing fantastic now. Thanks again Paul for all your help!!

Great service!
Paul represented my son in a very difficult case, as well as follow-up court appearances. He successfully got probation for my son rather than incarceration. He has made himself available many times on short notice and consistently returns calls or emails as soon as he’s able. There have been times I messaged him and he simply replied he was in court and he’d be in touch once he was finished. He fought for my son and I appreciate his efforts and skill very much!

| Hired Attorney
I strongly recommend hiring Paul Dickman.
I was arrested and charged with some very serious charges in October 2018. Researching lawyers, Paul stood out as someone with experience in my area of need. Paul was up front and truthful about everything. I was potentially facing 10+ years in prison, but Paul assured me, this would not happen. Facing what, at the time, was a corrupt Prosecutor’s office in Boone County and a Florence Police department that refused to acquire exculpatory evidence that would prove my side of the story and clearly take the biggest charge against me off the table, Paul fought for me. He was always available and he was able to get me a deal with the court that was more than satisfactory, considering the very big hurdles in front of us. Three years later, my case has now been dismissed and next is getting my record expunged. Paul knows how the sometimes unfair system works and will do the job it takes to make sure you are not being punished for making a mistake and ruining your future. You need to hire Paul.

"Paul has a rare quality of being both intelligent and humble. Everyone likes Paul. He uses this to his advantage both in and out of the courtroom. I had a case where Paul was on the other side.

I hope I do not have him as opposing counsel in the future as he is very good at his job. However, I have recommended him in the past to family and friends and will continue to do so in the future."
