At Landrum & Shouse, I have worked under the direct mentoring of John Martin.  My areas of practice I focus on are:  Insurance Defense, State Trial Practice, Animal Bites, Motor Vehicle Accidents, Premises Liability, Property Damage, Slip and Fall and Wrongful Death.  My practice is 100% devoted to litigation. Our team is focused on providing high quality and cost-effective service to our clients and has some of the most prolific attorneys in the state of Kentucky.  At Landrum & Shouse, we have the resources, the team, and the experience to handle the most complicated cases in court.  We are strong advocates for alternative dispute resolution strategies such as mediation and arbitration whenever appropriate.

I am a civil trial attorney. It has been my privilege to serve in the "people's court house" as lead defense counsel in numerous personal injury jury trials in Kentucky and Indiana.
