Criminal Charges We Defend

Whether you are facing criminal charges in Elizabeth, Radcliff, Bardstown, Hodgenville, Louisville, or a surrounding area, you will need a legal team who is on your side. At Bland & Birdwhistell, PLLC, we defend our clients against all types of criminal charges, including the following:

  • Domestic violence. We know from years of experience that domestic violence accusations are rarely what they seem. Let us help you tell your side of the story to the judge and/or jury.
  • Drug crimes. If you were caught in possession of an illegal drug or controlled substance (be it marijuana, cocaine, heroin, amphetamines, methamphetamines, club drugs, or another illegal substance), we will fight to reduce your charges as much as possible.
  • Theft crimes. Whether simple theft or armed robbery, theft crimes can result in serious penalties from the state of Kentucky. Turn to us for an aggressive defense strategy.
  • DUI. Pulled over for drunk driving? We defend that as well. Whether this is your first, second, or subsequent DUI charge, we are here to make sure that you know your rights and that your arresting officer did not violate those rights in any way.
  • Assault and battery. Penalties for assault and battery vary depending on your perceived intent and the amount of damage that was actually done to the alleged victim. We will review your case closely to determine the best approach for your defense.
  • Violent crimes. Acts of violence occur for countless reasons, and we want to ensure that the criminal court hears the full story — not just what your accuser has reported. Whether you were acting in self-defense, part of a two-sided fight, or falsely accused, we will provide you with a safe, judgment-free environment to share your story.

Again, this is not a comprehensive list of our services, but it does give you an idea of our extensive experience defending the criminally accused throughout Kentucky. From DUI charges to murder, we handle it all.

Private Criminal Defense Lawyer Or Public Defender?

Nowadays, everyone wants to save money, so it’s tempting to go with a court-appointed public defender to cut costs. However, think about what’s on the line before jumping to accept a court-appointed attorney. Criminal charges are serious and can have a dramatic impact on your entire life. You could face hard time or other consequences that will follow you forever and impact your future employment options.

Public defenders balance large caseloads, so they have extraordinarily little time to dedicate individual attention and research to one case. They will often push for a plea deal which might not ultimately be in your best interests. Instead, you want someone who will give your case the full and focused attention it deserves — someone who will fight aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome. At Bland & Birdwhistell, PLLC, that’s exactly the kind of lawyer you will find.
