A Reputation Built On Experience

Bates Law Office Kentucky is proud to offer experience that not many of our peers share. As a former public defender in Kentucky, attorney Eric Bates prepared hundreds of criminal cases for trial and navigated complex issues at all stages of litigation.

Aggressively Defending Our Clients

Our familiarity with the criminal justice system and the local district and circuit courts is a distinct advantage to our criminal defense clients. We have experience with broad range of criminal charges, particularly drug crimes. We will also skillfully evaluate the litigation hazards of your case. We can then help you to make the best decision for your situation - whether that decision is to negotiate the best plea agreement possible or prepare the case for trial.

Delivering Efficient And Effective Results

Our family law and personal injury practice areas benefit from our background in both litigation and mediation. If there is an opportunity to efficiently resolve your issue, we know how to offer collaborative approaches. We understand how to work through negotiations. Even reducing one or more issues to a partial settlement agreement may dramatically save the parties time and money.

Personalized Client Attention

We also earn our clients' trust through our devotion to providing specific and personalized client interaction and attention. We start by listening to your story. We inquire not only about the events that led up to your legal issue, but also about your preferences and goals. By taking the time to understand you, we can better understand your problem and how we can develop a winning legal strategy.
