We provide experienced representation to local public entities and local governments, including various Kentucky counties, county attorneys, Sheriff’s Departments, and detention centers.

Our civil rights defense practice includes both statutory and constitutional civil rights issues and governmental immunity. For example, our attorneys routinely handle cases involving sovereign immunity, qualified immunity, issues related to claims involving failure to treat a serious medical need, excessive force, wrongful discharge, and employment discrimination.

We also have experience representing local governments in administrative hearings including hearings before the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals and the Kentucky Unemployment Insurance Commission.

Government entities subject to the Kentucky Open Records Act also rely on the attorneys in this practice group for counsel and assistance when responding to requests under the Act.
