The attorneys at Landrum & Shouse LLP are focused on providing high-quality and cost-effective service to our clients. Many of our lawyers have been selected for legal services listings such as Best Lawyers in America, Kentucky Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in Kentucky. We are trial attorneys and appear in Kentucky Trial Verdict Reporter as among the most prolific law firms in Kentucky.


Our civil litigation practice focuses on defending individuals, businesses and government entities against legal actions. We also undertake plaintiff work in employment and workers’ compensation matters. As trial lawyers, we appreciate the growing expense of jury trials in terms of cost and time. Accordingly, we are strong advocates for alternative dispute resolution strategies such as mediation and arbitration whenever appropriate.


Our clients include individuals, businesses and government entities such as school districts and cities. We have represented school districts, professionals and small corporations clients, and national and local insurance companies. We have a particular focus on defending trucking companies, and our attorney, Daniel E. Murner, has appeared at national trucking industry conventions and educational programs. Whoever the client, we believe that being able to respond quickly to allegations and charges is the best way to avoid the time and cost of jury trials. However, we are trial lawyers and are always prepared to take a client’s matter to court.
