Our Approach

We are honored to help people during the most difficult times of their lives. Your new life after your problem is resolved  is part of our legacy.  We don't use abusive, spiteful tactics in our representation and will respond aggressively if they are used against you. We will work with you to reduce expensive and time consuming strategies that are unhelpful. Advocating for you and protecting you or your business is our mission and purpose. 

A Team in Your Corner

Practicing in Indiana and Kentucky we have offices in both states. We are often asked to join the representation provided by other attorneys when a legal problem crosses the  Ohio River to include another state. Our team includes a capable, experienced and educated staff. When the situation calls for it, we may include other reputable attorneys  to put their particular experience or expertise to work for you.

Our Team

Matthew R. Lemme

Admitted to practice in 2000, Matthew R. Lemme (or just "Lemme" to his friends and clients) is an experienced trial attorney. 

He is admitted to practice in Kentucky and Indiana and actively practices in both states - every day.  A 3rd generation attorney, and the 5th in his family, Lemme did not take the traditional path to a legal career. Work in the "real world," including years in law enforcement, are a valued part of his preparation and education for practicing law. 

He has served as a legal advisor to law enforcement officers in both Kentucky & Indiana as well. He has represented the Louisville Metro Government, its mayor, and police chief while serving as an assistant Jefferson County Attorney.

Matthew R. Lemme is also admitted to practice  in the United States District Courts  for the Western District of Kentucky, Eastern District of Kentucky, Southern District of Indiana and Northern District of Indiana. 

Lemme is a husband and father. He is often accompanied to his office by one of his shelter dogs, Daisy or Jax.
