I have a diverse practice representing regional banks, businesses, and non-profit entities in litigation and pre-litigation disputes.  As a litigator, my first priority is to advise our clients in a manner that keeps them out of the courtroom so that they can effectively predict and manage the cost of legal services.  In the event that litigation is unavoidable or is the most effective means of obtaining a recovery, I strongly believe that our results-oriented litigation team is second to none.  I am confident that every client that comes to our firm will appreciate our proactive and aggressive approach in getting results they deserve.

I have been able to successfully negotiate resolution of commercial lease disputes, breach of contract claims, partnership disputes, construction defect claims, and insurance and bad-faith claims prior to the formal initiation of litigation, saving my clients both time and thousands of dollars in legal fees.  Not every case can be resolved without the assistance of a jury, and I have been equally successful in obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of clients making breach of contract claims and defending clients from multi-million dollar tort claims.

As litigators, we thrive on the competition created by the adversarial nature of litigation.  A jury will determine a winner and loser in the courtroom and the McBrayer team of litigators is dedicated to making sure that our clients are on the winning team.


I have been with McBrayer since 2006 after leaving the law firm of Wiedner & McAuliffe, Ltd., in Chicago, Illinois, to start a family in Louisville.  After beginning my career with McBrayer in the firm’s Lexington office, I permanently moved to the Louisville office, which has since quadrupled in size.
