Attorney for Lawsuit

Owensboro, KY

#1 Mar 9, 2014
Does anyone know of a good attorney that specializes in civil lawsuits? Also, anyone know the statute of limitations for assault? I guess the attorney could answer that question though. Helpful advice only please.

what kind of civil suit, generally?
is money a concern?
is your lawyers credibility a concern?
who is the opposing lawyer?
Lawyer needs to be good. Money is always a concern but I have the general retainer. I would be suing for damages.

Did the police charge the person? Have you gone to court? The statute of limitations is one year for filing civil and criminal charges. I agree with "maybe" in that the legal system in Daviess County is a snake pit (corrupt).

I forgot to add that many attorneys will take a case like this without a retainer. Typically they will take a third of what you are financially awarded by the court. You can sue for damages, pain and suffering.

Most of the attorneys in Owensboro have no real experience in litigation. All they want to do is plead you out. An attorney can only be effective if they have been afforded the opportunity to handle a variety of cases.

Steve Dowell of Jackson Dowell spent 23 years in Northern Kentucky as a public defender, prosecutor and private practice. He now practices in Owensboro. He is aggressive and definitely thinks outside the box. He has won several civil suits in excess of a million dollars.

One thing I have noticed with a couple of attorneys I used before is that they just leave you hanging. They typically want the retainer and there is little or no follow up.

What difference does it make whether he practices full time in Owensboro? How does that equate to being a good attorney with the necessary experience? For the record, I am in no way connected to him.

You must be connected to Rhoads & Rhoads?

Talked to David Yewell about my divorce case. He wanted me to give him a mortgage on my house for his attorney fees.

Judge, I must ask, what have you seen of Dowell that makes you such an expert? I too have seen him in action and I have been very impressed with his work. Just because he has more than one office doesnt mean he lacks on taking care of his clients. Curious: my suggestion to you is talk to a couple of lawyers on a one on one basis and see if you have that connection with them.

Judge Judy, I would ask the same of you. If not connected to the "Rhoads brothers" then why promote them?

My friend was divorcing and hired a local attorney. I will not name them, because unlike Judge Judy, I refuse to single out and insult attorney's by name. She spent in excess of $50, 000 and received nothing except a small amount of child support . She then hired the Jackson/Dowell firm, went to trial and received alimony, her equity in the marital home, jewelry and her child support was increased exponentially.

Just use the internet search engine, y'all. You are using the internet now. Find your attorney on Google or an online legal directory directory such as Findlaw dot com
