We Provide Strong Defense And Trial Representation For All Alleged Offenses

We understand that serious crimes have serious consequences. A felony is the most serious type of crime a person can commit. A felony typically involves a threat to human life or property. If convicted of a felony, you could be sentenced to a Kentucky state prison for a year or more, in addition to a costly fine.

Not every felony carries the same severity, and some crimes involve degrees, such as homicide, manslaughter and assault.

  • Class A felonies — Includes burglary, drug crimes and robbery. Punishment could bring between 20 years to life imprisonment.
  • Class B felonies — Includes assault (in the first degree), drug crimes, manslaughter (in the first degree) and theft. Punishment could bring 10 to 20 years in prison.
  • Class C felonies — Includes assault (in the second degree), DUI, manslaughter (in the second degree) and white-collar crimes. Punishment could bring a 5 to 10 year sentence in prison.
  • Class D felonies —Includes assault (in the third degree), reckless homicide and felonious driving. Punishment could bring 1 to 5 years in prison.

  • Drug crimes: Drug crimes, including possession, trafficking and manufacture, are taken seriously in Kentucky. Under state law, the severity of fines and prison sentences varies, depending on the type and amount of substance involved. Fines can be steep, and prison sentences can range up to life in prison. It is in your best interest to have a qualified attorney on your side.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI): License suspension or revocation, fines, community service, jail, ignition interlock devices and mandatory substance or alcohol abuse programs can change the nature of your life. Many individuals try to represent themselves when it comes to DUI charges, but doing so effectively is difficult because the laws are hard to understand. An experienced attorney increases your chances of success.
