About Jeffery

Learn Jeffery’s areas of practice.

Jeff has earned a state-wide reputation as a personal injury attorney. In 1999, Jeff was elected to the Board of Governors of what is currently known as the Kentucky Justice Association.  Jeff has been unanimously elected as the 1st District Vice President of that organization for the past several years.  The Kentucky Justice Association is an association of attorneys throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky dedicated to representing people who have been injured or disabled and to preserving the civil jury trial system.


In addition, Jeff is a founding member of the Kentucky Workers’ Association. Jeff was unanimously elected as President of the Kentucky Workers’ Association from 2011 through 2015, when he decided to no longer seek the president’s position. The Kentucky Workers’ Association is a group of attorneys dedicated to assisting individuals who have been injured on the job in pursuing workers’ compensation claims and working to try to better the benefits for the injured workers in Kentucky.


Jeff's reputation as a workers compensation, social security, and trial attorney has gained him a reputation that extends far outside of Western Kentucky.  Jeff receives calls from attorneys from all over the state of Kentucky and even from other states asking him to represent their family, friends, and clients.


Jeff is so well thought of that he is frequently asked to speak at continuing legal education seminars training other attorneys in Kentucky how to properly pursue workers comopensation, social security and personal injury claims.   


In addition to his private practice, Jeff was a part-time prosecutor for more than 12 years.  During this time, Jeff conducted more jury trials and bench hearings than a lot of attorneys experience in a life time.  This allowed Jeff to hone his craft, so that he can be a more effective advocate in the courtroom for his clients.

Social Security Disability
After a denial of my application for social security disability, I decided to contact Jeff Roberts as we received previous knowledge that he was a very good lawyer for this type of claim. We found this to be totally true. He was very thorough in explaining the process the first day we were there. Then along the way of this process, we were informed of how each step was being handled. Not only was Jeff very professional, but his staff was extremely helpful as well. Questions were answered in language we definitely could understand and phone calls made to the office were returned. Then when my disability was approved, we again received a thorough explanation of the final determination. We would definitely seek Jeff's assistance again if need be and would also highly recommend him to family and friends.

Excellent Attorney
After going through a traumatizing event such as a wreck, I needed someone compassionate, thorough, and willing to go the extra mile to advocate for me. I found all of that in Jeff Roberts Law Office. The entire office is friendly, and truly cares about their clients. I am extremely satisfied with the results that Jeff Roberts Law Office provided for me.

Jeff Roberts law is very professional and proficient in what they do. They assisted with my disability case I was taken back by the care and compassion that they show. The office makes contact on a regular basis to make sure that they have all your information and claims information up to date and accurate. They basically take you by the hand and guide you through the whole entire process which I find comforting. They're willing to answer any questions that you may have. And their prep work is immaculate. I want to thank the office very much for the time and effort that was put in to my case. Thank you LaCinda Newberry

Absolutely Phenomal Work!
Jeff and his office personnel are top notch people to work with. They are very responsive, very kind, and very knowledgeable. Jeff & his staff always kept me up-to-speed on what was going on, provided excellent advice, and talked me through the whole process. Jeff is very professional, but easy to talk to. He gets to know you on a personal level. You are not just a number to him! You can tell he truly cares about you and enjoys what he does for a living. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an attorney. Chris was the paralegal that helped handle my case. Everything was always spot on! Thank you Jeff & staff for everything that you did for me! Could not have asked for any better.

Jeff Roberts and his team went well above the level I had expected. I had applied for disability, and got a call that I had been denied. That' s when I called Roberts Law Office. The Roberts team went to work that day, and before I knew it, I was approved! Take my word for it, you want Roberts Law Firm on your side!

Worker's Compensation Medical Dispute Claim

Small Claim
He recently saw my case to completion. And even though it was a small claim, I found Jeff to be dedicated, honest, and very competent. I am grateful to have been referred to him and would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs assistance with workman's comp injury.

Could not be more pleased!
I absolutely made the right decision when I hired Jeff to represent me in my workers comp injury case. I dont think I could have found anyone more knowledgeable in this area. My anxiety regarding my injury was terrible, the only mistake I made was not hiring him sooner. I am thankfully getting the much needed surgery and medical care that was necessary for my recovery from my injury. Jeff and Chris were more helpful than words can express. Would certainly hire him again.

There for me
After being denied a worker's compensation claim, I reached out to Jeff based on reviews, so I feel that sharing my experience will help others in the same situation. Jeff was there for me throughout the entire process. He explained everything to me: the process, the legal issues, and other expectations. He and his staff were friendly and helpful. They were prompt with their responses any time I had a question, no matter how trivial the question was. In essence, he had my back!

A lawyer with heart
I have worked all my life and when I was struck with an illness that made working no longer an option, I didn't know what to do. I filed for disability and tried to stay on top of the paperwork, but even though I did all that was asked of me. I got turned down. That's when I hired Jeff Roberts and his team to fight for me. From the start they allowed me to relax, safe in the knowledge that they had this under control. They handled everything for me!! I could not have asked for a better group of people, to work with. Kind and considerate and always professional they never were too busy to answer a question or simply assure me that it was going to be okay. I was awarded my disability earlier than we had hoped and I have Jeff and his law firm to thank!
