The goal for all PPOA attorneys is to consistently provide excellent legal services in the defense of our clients.This demands that every case be given the utmost attention and effort.

In pursuit of this goal, our attorneys have gained considerable experience in a wide range of practice areas, and we also have a staff of experienced paralegals and nurse paralegals that provide significant assistance and support in all aspects of our practice.

PPOA opened its Lexington office in 2008 and expanded to Florida in 2013. These expansions were undertaken to service the needs of several of our regional and national clients.  In each instance, the goal was to build upon the quality of legal services that our clients had come to expect in our Louisville office.

At PPOA, we recognize that our duties go far beyond those extended to our client. We understand that our attorneys also owe a duty to support and strengthen our community.

Also, every attorney at PPOA has had the benefit of being mentored by skilled and talented trial attorneys, and we always strive to make a similar impact on members of the legal community, especially young lawyers and law students. Our attorneys frequently serve as judges in local, regional, and national trial competitions, and our attorneys have served as adjunct faculty at the University of Louisville’s Brandeis School of Law. In addition, members of the firm are frequent lecturers in Continuing Legal Education seminars and give similar presentations to professional organizations and clients.
