Soha T. Saiyed

Attorney

I am an experienced Kentucky trial lawyer who fights for justice on behalf of my clients.  I have been an attorney since 2006.  I spent over 8 years in public service at the Legal Aid Society (LAS).  At LAS I represented low-income people in and around the Louisville, KY area.  My practice area was civil litigation and I helped hundreds of people in and out of the courts.  I represented tenants whose landlords were trying to unlawfully evict them; I fought against banks trying to foreclose against homeowners in our community; I helped victims of domestic violence in divorces; and I assisted the disabled in maintaining their benefits.

Representing low-income people against big banks, slumlords, and other parties with more resources was an important educational experience.  I am bringing that experience with me to Abney Law Office to help working people who do not have the same resources, money, and power as their employers.  I also represent individuals whose civil rights have been violated outside of their employment.  I have had success both at trial and in settling cases on behalf of my clients.  

Outside of work, I am currently the Board Chair for Stop Traffic Kentucky, a nonprofit organization I started to educate the public about human trafficking and raise money for trafficking survivors.  I'm also the Vice-Chair of the ACLU of Kentucky Board.  I participate in several other community organizations, advocate in favor of racial justice, and I teach Trial Practice as an adjunct at the Brandeis School of Law, University of Louisville.  

I look forward to working for you.
