"I looked the prosecutor in the eye and told him: 'Either I'm getting what I want from you, or I'm getting it from the jury. You decide how much work you want to do on this.' I did just what I said I would do. And my client was found NOT GUILTY."

-Nick Mudd


Being charged with a crime, no matter how serious or how insignificant, can wreak havoc on your life. You can lose your job, lose your family, lose your reputation, lose your liberty, and lose your dignity. Nick Mudd is committed to every client who walks in the door to get them the best possible outcome for their case. At the end of the day, you are left with three options: the case is dismissed, the client pleads guilty, or the case goes to trial. Many lawyers like to be retained and quickly settle the case to, as they say, "get it over for you." That often leads to bad deals, ruined background checks, and/or loss of your freedom. Nick Mudd takes a different approach. With every case that walks in the door, the first two questions he asks ALWAYS are: "(1) How can we get these charges dismissed?; and/or (2) How can we beat this at trial?"


When hiring a lawyer you want someone who knows the judges, knows the prosecutors, and knows the police officers, and is respected by their peers. Nick Mudd is that person. He spent 5 and a half years as a prosecutor, prosecuting some of Kentucky's most high profile cases. Now he brings that experience to you. He is who many in the legal community, even police officers, call when they have been accused of a crime. 

Nick Mudd has extensive experience in the following Criminal Defense practice areas in all District and Circuit Courts of Kentucky, the Federal Western District of Kentucky, the Federal Eastern District of Kentucky, and the Federal Southern District of Indiana.
