About Earnest

Learn Earnest’s areas of practice.


A technology enthusiast with the heart & mind of a criminal defense lawyer - an antihero in every sense of the word.
In the spirit of going "against the grain," I'd like to start with some personal, non-professional background.  My hobbies include collecting sports memorabilia, spending far too many hours playing PC games & watching (and re-watching) tons of movies/TV shows. Among my favorite movies are: The Godfather, The Departed, Goodfellas, Casino, The Dark Knight, Sin City, The Punisher, Tombstone, A Bronx Tale, The Devil's Advocate, and so on and so forth.  Favorite TV shows include: Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, Newsroom, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, and Game of Thrones.  
My hidden talent = pop culture trivia. I have a disturbing ability to recall obscure movie trivia, quotes, and 
Now, for the boring stuff! Growing up in the hills of southeast KY - an area known for many things, least of all technology - technology was (and is) scarce and far behind. At 10 years old, my fascination with technology began - my first computer. Dial-up internet was still new(ish) but once I discovered "the internet" a symbiotic bond formed & continues to grow to this day.
I have been a loyal & dedicated advocate of all things technology since before the internet became the god-child that it is today. In 7th grade, I decided to be a lawyer. Thus, I have been on a crash course for the nexus of law & technology since long ago. My formal studies of criminal law began in college with coursework including: Criminal Investigations, White Collar Crime, Drugs, Crime & Society, and Organized Crime.  This time cemented my future -- there was no other career for me than being a defense attorney.  I structured my studies & extracurriculars around the realm of criminal law.
During law school, I worked briefly for an intellectual property/patent/trademark attorney. Then, I worked for a small Jacksonville firm whose primary area of practice is criminal defense. I graduated in May 2014 from Florida Coastal School of Law and was admitted to the KY Bar in September 2014. tidbits that have no business occupying a part of one's memory.
