The firm traces its history from pre-World War II legal service by its founding partners.

The resulting firm was built upon the well-deserved reputations of its founders as experienced, knowledgeable and hard-working Lexington civil litigation lawyers.

The attorneys at Landrum & Shouse, LLP with offices in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, are very competent and provide a wide range of civil litigation services to individuals, businesses, governmental agencies and organizations. As the fourth largest law firm in Kentucky, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to undertake even the most complex litigation.

Our legal practice focuses on litigation. As trial attorneys, we are especially sensitive to the high cost, in terms of both money and time, of courtroom battles. Consequently, we seek to become involved in matters before they are scheduled for trial; this strategy often results in a matter being dismissed or referred to some type of alternative dispute resolution.

To speak with one of our civil litigation lawyers, please call us in Lexington at (859) 554-4038 or in Louisville at (502) 589-7616 for an appointment.
