Amanda D. January 14, 2021
I was new to all this Mr. Hulbert was very helpful in helping me to understand what the charges were and what I was looking at money wise and penalty wise. He took care of all the communications with the district attorney and when all was said and done I was very pleased with my results. I was able to get ahold of him on any given day and he answered quickly. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Chris H. December 3, 2020
Sincere, assertive and accessible. Mr. Hulbert was consistently available to offer advice to myself and my family during a very difficult time. He was able to encourage, educate and comfort us while ensuring no time was wasted while moving toward a preferred resolution. We remain grateful for his expertise and understanding.

Biography

I have enjoyed the privilege of being a Legal Expert offering Legal Analysis for local news media on high profile cases. I have earned that reputation through many years of legal experience and opportunities as a lawyer in Kentucky. My Criminal Law and Family Law clients know I am a trusted advocate and a powerful voice on their case and my reviews on Google and other websites show their appreciation for my hard work and the positive results. As the former head of the Violent Crimes Unit for the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney, I know what the other side is planning on your case. I use my 20 years of experience in the Court System and the relationships I have made with current Judges and help my clients get the best possible outcome on their Criminal Law or Family Law cases. Many attorneys will advertise they have "experience" or have catchy slogans but I have as much relevant current courtroom experience on both sides of the table as any defense attorney in the area. With my representation you deal directly with me and not with an associate or paralegal. Please see my 5.0 rating based on over 60 reviews on Google and my perfect ratings on Avvo, Justia and Thumbtack based on my reviews from clients and colleagues.

Legal Answers
203 Questions Answered
Q. What do I do if I cannot get a hold of my probation officer to get signed up
A: Leave messages. Have proof that have you tried to contact them. Go see them at their office or call their supervisor.
Q. I have a failure to appear warrant in Florida will I be able to get a Kentucky id without going to jail
A: They will not arrest you at the ID place but anytime you’re pulled over you could be arrested for an out of state warrant depending on what the charges are. I think it’s safer to clear that warrant out before you try to get an ID.
Q. I think my son just received a higher charge, because his big brother just served 5 years for a battery.
A: It’s a little hard to follow your fact pattern but it sounds like you’re saying he was charged with a misdemeanor for two years and then a few days before a trial they moved it up to a felony? That is very rare and sounds strange. It’s possible for them to indict felony charges at any time as there is no statute of limitations on a felony in Kentucky but to raise a misdemeanor after two years is very odd unless there was new evidence.
