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.
