About Us

Our law firm, founded in 1956 by Charles Landrum and Weldon Shouse, is one of the largest firms in Kentucky. With more than 30 attorneys, we have the resources and experience to handle the most complicated of cases in court or by employing alternative dispute resolution techniques.

The attorneys at Landrum & Shouse, LLP are focused on providing high-quality and cost-effective service to our clients. Many of our lawyers have been selected for legal services listings such as Best Lawyers in America, Kentucky Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in Kentucky. We are trial attorneys and appear in Kentucky Trial Verdict Reporter as among the most prolific law firms in Kentucky.

Landrum & Shouse is recognized as the most prolific law firm for 2014 by the Kentucky Trial Verdict Reporter and has received a Tier 1 ranking for the state of Kentucky by Best Lawyer U.S. News - "Best Law Firms 2015-2016."

Landrum & Shouse, LLP is one of the largest law firms in Central Kentucky and has been reported as a Best Law Firm by U.S. News and World Report with offices in both Lexington and Louisville. The firm traces its history from pre-World War II legal service by its founding partners. For nearly 40 years following military service, the late Weldon Shouse and the late Charles Landrum, Jr., together with their firms, practiced law throughout Kentucky before merging in 1984 to become what is now known as Landrum & Shouse, LLP. The resulting firm was built upon the well-deserved reputations of its founders as experienced, knowledgeable and hard-working Lexington civil litigation lawyers.

The attorneys at Landrum & Shouse, LLP with offices in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, are very competent and provide a wide range of civil litigation services to individuals, businesses, governmental agencies and organizations. As the fourth largest law firm in Kentucky, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to undertake even the most complex litigation. Our legal practice focuses on litigation. As trial attorneys, we are especially sensitive to the high cost, in terms of both money and time, of courtroom battles. Consequently, we seek to become involved in matters before they are scheduled for trial; this strategy often results in a matter being dismissed or referred to some type of alternative dispute resolution.

To speak with one of our civil litigation lawyers, please call us in Lexington at (859) 554-4038 or in Louisville at (502) 589-7616 for an appointment.

Services may be performed by other lawyers at our Lexington or Louisville offices.
