Landrum & Shouse, LLP is one of the largest law firms in Central Kentucky and has been reported as a Best Law Firm by U.S. News and World Report with offices in both Lexington and Louisville. The firm traces its history from pre-World War II legal service by its founding partners. For nearly 40 years following military service, the late Weldon Shouse and the late Charles Landrum, Jr., together with their firms, practiced law throughout Kentucky before merging in 1984 to become what is now known as Landrum & Shouse, LLP. The resulting firm was built upon the well-deserved reputations of its founders as experienced, knowledgeable and hard-working Lexington civil litigation lawyers.

Landrum and Shouse LLP has 9 attorneys who have been named Best Lawyers in America, 2 of which have been recognized as Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in America®. Pierce W. Hamblin has been named Lawyer of the Year for 2015-2016 by Best Lawyers in America® for Mediation in Lexington, Larry C. Deener has been named Lawyer of the Year for 2015-2016 by Best Lawyers in America® for Railroad Law in Lexington.

Notable recognition goes to L&S's very own, Pierce W. Hamblin who has been named as a Top 10 Kentucky Super Lawyer® for Mediation and Leslie P. Vose recognized as a Top 25 Kentucky Super Lawyer® for Employment and Labor Law.

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.


Services may be performed by other lawyers at our Lexington or Louisville offices.
