About Timothy Denison

Criminal Defense Attorney Timothy DenisonI am not your average lawyer. However, if you are faced with a potentially life-changing legal matter, the last thing you want is an average lawyer. The average lawyer is buttoned-down, conventional and unimaginative. These are not qualities that win cases.

My name is Timothy Denison. I am not afraid to defy conventions, redefine norms or push the boundaries to come up with creative means of winning cases. If you want an attorney with an ounce of attitude and a lot of fight, I’m your guy. I can handle any criminal defense, family law or bankruptcy case.

Willing To Take Cases To Trial

With more than 100 jury trials under my belt, I can claim the title of trial lawyer. I was recently invited to join the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America. Plenty of lawyers will threaten to take a case to trial, but do they have the strength to follow through? I do not make empty threats or hollow promises. If I say I am going to try a case if I do not get a reasonable compromise, I will try the case. My opponents know this and fear me.

When cases get tough, you cannot afford to have a glass-jawed lawyer

I can take a couple of punches if I need to and still stay on my feet. I will not back down from any fight. If it sounds like I have an attitude, excuse me.
Where I grew up, they still say “it ain’t braggin’ if you can do it.”

Where Do Lawyers And Judges Turn When Their Careers Are On The Line?

Lawyers and judges are humans like the rest of us. They occasionally find themselves in tough situations as well. When their careers are on the line, they turn to me. I defend other lawyers against legal malpractice claims and disciplinary actions, and judges against allegations of misconduct. This should speak volumes of my reputation in the legal community. But if you’re still not satisfied, just ask someone who knows me I have been honored by
being listed among the top lawyers in Louisville in Louisville Magazine, as well as being given the client distinction award from Martindale-Hubbell.
