Criminal Law

Criminal Law

If you are facing a criminal charge or are the subject of an investigation, it is vital that you contact an experienced attorney who will ensure your rights are protected. It is imperative not to speak to the police without an attorney present. Kellner Green can provide you with the representation of a qualified attorney who will speak to the prosecution and police on your behalf.

Our criminal law attorneys understand that the legal process can be stressful and intimidating to our clients and their families. We take pride in establishing a strong attorney-client relationship and will walk you through every step of the process in a language that you will understand. This allows us to work together to ensure that you are fully aware of your legal options, your constitutional rights, and the possible consequences of a criminal conviction.

As experienced criminal attorneys, we are committed to protecting the rights and liberty interests of our clients.

We’ve successfully defended individuals accused of a wide range of crimes with varying complexity and public interest, including murder, assault, sex crimes, robbery, burglary, theft charges, drug charges, domestic violence, driving under the influence (DUI), traffic offenses, bad checks, credit card fraud, parole violations, and more.


In the Commonwealth of Kentucky, crimes which carry a sentence of a year or more are classified as felonies. Kellner Green regularly represents individuals charged with both violent and non-violent felony crimes. We assist our clients in understanding the procedure employed by Jefferson Circuit Court Judges and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office. Because of our extensive courtroom experience, we are comfortable advocating for our clients in front of both judge and jury.


Our attorneys have represented hundreds of clients charged with misdemeanors in and around Jefferson County, Kentucky. In Jefferson County, all misdemeanors are heard in Jefferson District Court located in the Hall of Justice. Our experienced attorneys have the knowledge to assist you in seeking the best possible outcome in your misdemeanor case.

Driving Under Influence (DUI)

Despite Kentucky’s stringent DUI laws, options are available to individuals charged with a DUI. A DUI charge can mean possible court fines and jail time, loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, employment consequences, and financial uncertainty. Our attorneys look for ways to ensure that a DUI charge has the least impact possible on the lives of our clients.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence offenders are subject to increased penalties beyond those to which non-domestic violence offenders are subject. Our attorneys represent clients in domestic violence cases in both family and criminal court. Our participation and experience in countless domestic violence cases provides us with the knowledge and understanding needed to provide sound advice and skilled advocacy in this area.

Traffic Violations

Traffic violations are punishable with fines, suspension or loss of driving privileges, mandatory classes, community service, and jail time for more serious offenses in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. No matter what the charge(s) may be, you need an attorney who is experienced in handling traffic violation cases and who has an extensive understanding of criminal law to represent your best interests and to help you understand your options for an intelligent defense.

Probation Revocation

We regularly reach out to probation officers and prosecutors on behalf of clients facing felony probation revocation. We work diligently to avoid imposition of a state sentence. We have garnered the experience to advise clients on how best to proceed and to assist clients in collecting evidence that may assist in their defense.
