What Our Clients Are Saying


  • “I highly recommend P. Stewart Abney for any employment law case!!! He is extremely knowledgeable and so easy to talk to! After calling almost every attorney in the South Central Kentucky area, I was so grateful to have found him. He is SO skilled at what he does. He made me feel so supported and heard during such a stressful and difficult time in my life.”


  • “My lawyer, Stuart Abney, was the best I could ask for. From my initial meeting with him he was compassionate and willing to listen when I was under a great deal of stress. He had an abundant knowledge of the law and was able to fully inform me from the beginning to the end. Not one minute in those 4 years or since have I regretted having Stuart Abney as my lawyer. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to represent me. I would highly recommend him.”


  • “After returning to work from maternity leave I was greeted with a demotion and a cut in pay. This came as a surprise to me since I had been promoted often and had never had a poor performance review or even a verbal warning in my 5 years of employment. Because of the seriousness of my situation Mr. Abney worked late that night, well after his working hours. He has a passion for what he does and he is able to portray that with his obvious dedication and extensive knowledge of employment law.”


  • “Mr. Abney helped me out of a very unfair situation at work. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place and he was able to find a path out for me. A path that I never would have known was there without his help. My only regret is not calling him sooner. I feel he always had my best interest at hand. I would recommend him to anyone, especially some of my former co-workers.”


  • “I had a wonderful experience working with Paul Stewart Abney. He was very attentive and was only an e-mail or phone call away whenever I had any questions, big or small, day or night. He was very empathetic to my situation and never made me feel low for wanting to go through with my suit against my employer. Very supportive and hardworking and got my case settled super fast! I would recommend him to anyone going through what I went through and if I ever have the need for an attorney, I will be giving his office a call.”


  • “ I contacted Mr. Abney regarding sexual harassment that I had experienced in my workplace. I was nervous and uncomfortable anticipating talking about my unfortunate experience. However, when consulting with Mr. Abney, I found him to be very compassionate and understanding of my situation. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and very highly recommend Mr. Abeny.”


  • “Working with Mr. Abney and his staff was a pleasure. My. Abney’s knowledge of employment law was outstanding and comforting. If I ever need legal again, he will definitely be my first call.”


  • “Totally satisfied with how my case was handled, I’m a lil disappointed I didn’t get to see him during trial. I heard he was great in the courtroom, but totally fine I didn’t have to wait that long lol but I totally recommend him to anybody looking for a lawyer.”


  • “He is just wonderful! He saw my case all the way through and was thorough in resolving it. He’s such an amazing lawyer, the absolute very best! I highly recommend him.”


  • “I needed an attorney with litigation expertise in pursuit of a settlement with a former employer. Mr. Abney gathered facts, executed a letter to said employer and I received a very adequate settlement. All communications proves professional and efficient”
