Since its formation over 80 years ago, Miller, Griffin & Marks has remained a primarily litigation-oriented firm, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in all types of civil proceedings. In addition to our dedicated Litigation Division, the members of our Equine and Family Law Divisions are also primarily litigators. Litigation Division attorneys also perform work in the equine and family law areas. Our firm’s team-oriented approach provides our clients with a broad spectrum of litigation experience and skills.
Although we have been involved in litigation in Tennessee, Oklahoma, California, Florida, and New York, our primary work is through the state and federal courts located in Kentucky. We have substantial experience in all four levels of the Kentucky court system, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky, the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, local government proceedings, and administrative tribunals.
Our attorneys regularly practice in the areas of criminal law, personal injuries, insurance disputes, real estate disputes, and commercial disputes, including bank foreclosures and contractual issues. In disputes brought against fiduciaries and/or professionals, we have obtained six- and seven-figure payments for our clients.
We also have extensive litigation experience in the area of employment law. While we frequently represent employers of all sizes, we are particularly proud of our representation of a class of 317 current and former employees of the Fayette County Detention Center, who were not being paid as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Through our efforts, our clients received compensation, payment of their attorneys’ fees, and, perhaps most importantly, a substantially improved work environment. After the settlement of that action, we pursued relief for plaintiffs who were retaliated against by the Detention Center’s administration.
