Lexington and Louisville Civil And Business Litigation Attorneys

Firm co-founders Charles Landrum and Weldon Shouse

Landrum & Shouse LLP, with offices in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, provides a wide range of civil litigation services to individuals, businesses, governmental agencies and organizations. As one of the largest law firms in Kentucky, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to undertake even the most complex litigation.

Landrum & Shouse LLP traces its history from pre-World War II legal service by its founding partners. For nearly 40 years following military service, the late Weldon Shouse and the late Charles Landrum, Jr., together with their firms, practiced law throughout Kentucky before merging in 1984 to become what is now known as Landrum & Shouse LLP. The resulting firm was built upon the well-deserved reputations of its founders as experienced, knowledgeable and hard-working Lexington and Louisville civil litigation lawyers.

Accomplished Louisville and Lexington Business Litigation Lawyers

A high percentage of our partners have been named as Kentucky Super Lawyers. Others have received AV ratings* in Martindale-Hubbell’s peer-rating system. Still others are members of legal organizations such as the Trucking Insurance Defense Association (TIDA) and the National Railroad Trial Counsel organization.

In addition to our distinguished attorneys, our firm is known for its high-quality, affordable services, even during bad economic times. As founder and managing partner William Shouse has said, “We are a value-oriented firm.”

Trial Attorneys Handling All Types of Litigation

White Collar Criminal Defense and Investigations

For over two decades, Landrum & Shouse LLP has maintained a statewide and regional practice in complex criminal defense for clients appearing in federal and state court. Despite the profile of some of the cases handled by our firm, it is our belief that the most successful criminal defenses should not be high profile. We achieve our best results at the investigative stage, before an indictment has been returned and the case is in the headlines.
